Muskegon, Michigan, USA...Proper mounting of thin section ball bearings is essential to ensuring optimal bearing performance. Because thin section bearings have a much thinner cross-section than standard bearings of the same diameter, they are more sensitive to shaft and housing fits.

A new white paper from Kaydon Bearings outlines factors to consider when mounting radial, four-point contact, and angular contact bearings, including shaft and housing tolerances, recommended fits, use of clamp rings, and general recommendations.
