Bearings are components that are crucial to countless assemblies, ensuring that friction is reduced and that motion is constrained to specific movements. For automobiles engines in particular, bearings are paramount to the functionality of equipment such as the crankshaft, allowing it to be supported and protected from the forces of friction. As the failure of crankshaft bearings can quickly lead to engine damage or failure, it is important that they are inspected and maintained regularly.
When an assembly features bearings, nuts, and bolts, it is important that such components never become loose due to the forces of vibration or other factors. With a type of nut known as a lock nut bearing, bearing locknut, or locknut, assemblies are provided vibration resistance and may have their bearings and other components located onto an adapter or shaft. As components that are found in countless assemblies and applications ranging from the securing of aircraft bearings to the pulleys of industrial machines, understanding how the lock nut bearing functions is crucial for anyone operating such machinery.
Fasteners are often some of the most important parts for the construction of aircraft and equipment. At their most basic, they secure two or more components together in a non-permanent fashion, restricting motion relative to the attached component and include hardware components like screws, nuts, bolts, rivets, and more. Flange mount bearings are a specific type of bearing fastener, and are important for applications where a shaft is perpendicular to the surface it is being mounted upon. Common applications for flange mount bearings include HVAC belt drives, conveyors, food processing machines, and more.
Few components are as important as aircraft bearings in the aerospace industry. Bearings, as their name implies, bear weight and friction, allowing components in the aircraft to turn and rotate in a controlled manner. Bearings can take several different forms, but for this article we will focus on roller bearings.
Believe it or not, building an aircraft is a complicated process. It is one thing to design the aircraft on paper or more likely, on the computer, but it is another thing to piece it together. Specialized tools and hardware are required to fix the various aircraft components in place and allow for any mechanical movement to occur. Bearings are small pieces of hardware that house linear or rotational movement. As the name suggests, bearings bear weight within a piece of machinery, and are particularly useful in reducing the amount of friction within a machine. The moving parts have a smaller surface area than two rigid components moving past one another. By decreasing the amount of friction inside a machine, you are effectively increasing the lifespan of the machine. Bearings are widely used across the aviation, marine, and defense industries. There are numerous types of bearings including the popular rod end bearing.
