Chain & Drives stock Schaeffler’s radial insert ball bearings. Bearings with an inner ring extended on both sides undergo less tilting of the inner ring and therefore run more smoothly. The outer ring has a spherical or cylindrical outside surface. In combination with an INA housing matched to the design, bearings with a spherical outside surface can compensate for misalignment of the shaft.
Located on the shaft by means of eccentric locking collars, grub screws in the inner ring, adapter sleeves, drive slots or fit. These radial insert ball bearings are easy to fit and are suitable for drawn shafts of grades h6 to h9 and can be relubricated with only a few exceptions. Schaeffler also supply radial insert ball bearings in the X-life grade. X-life is the premium brand that has a longer rating and operating life with less maintenance intervals, possible.
