You should help your bearings to reach maximum lifespan.
There is calculated lifetime for each bearing.Additionally,researches indicate that each bearing does not reach this lifetime.The most important stages which have basic effect on bearing lifetime,can be seen easily during life cycle of one bearing.These stages are assembly and pre-lubrication,adjustment,re-lubrication, status monitoring systems and disassembly.
These stages which are at bearing cycle,are too important for supplying maximum bearing lifetime.You can increasing bearing life with practicing true maintenance plan and using true assembly and disassembly appliances.You can also increase your workshop’s efficiency and productivity.
Assembly and Lubrication
This subject contains mechanic assembly appliances,induction heaters and hydraulic equipments.Assembly is the most critical stage of bearing life cycle.
If bearing is not assembled properly with true method and appliances,bearing life will be decreased naturally.Lubrication is also important stage of assembly process.
Choosing proper grease for optimum performance is critical.In addition to these,using true grease amount and proper lubrication method will affect bearing life positively.
Laser Axis Adjusment
This subject contains shaft and pulley axis adjustment systems
For example;like connecting enine to pump,After assembly for bearing,necessary axial adjustment processes should be made at any practicing.If axial adjustments are not done correctly,result of improper adjustment,bearing can suffer additional loads,vibration and friction are increased.These events ,accelerating fatique cycle,decrease life of bearing and other machine elements. Additionally,increasing vibration and friction energy consumption is at significant rate,cause erarlier bering damage.
It contains bearing grease,manual and automatic lubricators and accessories of lubrication.
On operating time,for optimum performance,bearing should be re-lubricated correctly.Choosing correct grease for practicing and delivery with correct amount at correct period is obligatory to take advantage of bearing life.In addition to this, lubrication method contributes to optimize bearing life.From single point or multi-point,lubricating forever with automatic lubricators provide more stable,more correct amount than manual lubrication methods and lubrication which is free of pollutants.
Basic Condition Monitoring Systems
It contains temperature,noise,speed and vibration measuring appliances.
At working time,measuring basic machine status monitoring parameters like temperature,vibration and noise is important.Possible problems are detected with these regular checks at earlier stage,prevent unplanned machine stop.As a result,maintenance plan is arranged considering producing status.In this way, workshop efficieny and productivity are increased.
It includes both hydraulic and mechanical puller, induction heaters and hydraulic equipment.
At some point, the bearing completes its operating life and needs to be replaced. Even if the bearing is not reused, the correct disassembly is extremely important for the life of the bearing to be replaced. First, the proper removal method and the use of tools prevent damage to other machine elements such as bearings and bearings that do not change frequently. Second, unsuitable removal techniques may pose a danger to the operator.
