ACCESSORIES – PERFECT SUPPORT FOR BEARINGS

 

ZubehörWe offer a wide range of accessories for maintaining and servicing our bearings. From lubricants and spare parts to assembly material, the focus is on maintaining operability. Proper lubrication with special greases or oils is very important in this regard, not only for sliding bearings, but also for rolling bearings. Errors in lubrication affect running behaviour, damage the bearing and reduce its service life. Our lubricants have been developed especially for rolling bearings, including deep groove ball bearings, spherical roller bearings, tapered roller bearing or other types. You can avoid errors in lubrication by using automatic lubrication devices, which you can also purchase from us. You can set the amount of lubricant and the time intervals.

Shaft sealing rings, accessories we also offer, ensure that the lubricant stays in the bearing. There are various sizes and design versions that can be used in a wide variety of situations form spherical plain bearings and plummer blocks to flanged bearings and housed bearing units. The seal rings protect bearing positions and machine components from contamination und moisture as well. Shaft sealing rings are most often made of rubber, but depending on the application area, various types can be used, including:

  • Silicone rubber
  • Acrylate rubber
  • Fluorocarbon rubber
  • Natural rubber


With chain drives, the chain elongates over time, so it could sag, resulting in uneven running and strong vibrations, especially with large loads. Chain tension wheels can be used to compensate for this stretching to a point. If the elongation is too great, you must replace the chain. Chain tension wheels consist of wheel disks and rolling bearings. They are used for these purposes:

  • To compensate for sagging chains
  • To redirect the chain within the chain drive


The rolling elements of bearings have to be replaced occasionally as well, based on which rolling elements are in the bearing: there are tapered bearings, cylindrical roller bearings and needle roller bearings. We offer a large selection of rolling elements in various sizes. These often consist of steel balls and rollers. But we also have a special ceramic material. Our assembly accessories include threaded pins, precision nuts and retaining rings. Threaded pins are often used to attach the inner rings of insert ball bearings to the shaft. Precision nuts are also used for attachment to shafts or adapter sleeves, especially if the application includes transferring high axial forces. They are used, for example, in ball screws or precision bearings. Retaining rings can be used to secure various types of attachments.
