Insert bearings (Y-bearings)

  • Insert bearings (Y-bearings) are based on sealed deep groove ball bearings in the 62 and 63 series,
  • but have a convex outer ring and in most cases an extended inner ring with a specific locking device, enabling quick and easy mounting onto the shaft.

Features and Benefits

  1. Quick and easy to mount
    The different locking methods enable quick and easy mounting of insert bearings onto the shaft.

  2. Accommodate initial misalignment
    The spherically shaped outside surface enables initial misalignment by tilting in the housing.

  3. Long service life
    The different sealing solutions available provide a long service life for a wide variety of applications with high contamination levels.

  4. Reduced noise and vibration levels
    Where high requirements on noise and vibration levels are important, Insert bearings can provide the appropriate shaft locking method.

Loads are defined by their direction. Loads perpendicular to the shaft are called radial loads and loads parallel to the shaft are called axial (thrust) loads.

Successful mounting is critical to the life cycle of your bearing. Proper bearing dismounting can safeguard other machine components and maintenance workers.

  1. The bearing is at the heart of all rotating equipment, and the condition of the bearing often reflects how well a machine is running.
  2. Learn more about bearing damage and bearing failure – and how to prevent it.
