How to finish the axial restraint of the spherical rod end bearing?

- Oct 13, 2017 -

In order to prevent the unnecessary movement of the spherical rod end bearing on the shaft or the shell, and affecting its service life, it is usually necessary to fix the inner and outer ring of the spherical rod end bearing. At present, the axial restraint of spherical rod end bearing mainly includes two aspects: axial location and axial fastening.


The reference end face of the inner ring of the spherical rod end bearing is generally positioned by the shaft shoulder, while its outer ring is positioned by the retaining shoulder of the shell hole. In order to ensure that the end face of the bearing is close  to the shaft shoulder, the shaft shoulder chamfer should be less than the bearing assembly chamfer in the design. At the same time, the shaft shoulder of the spherical rod end bearing should have a certain height to transfer the axial load and install expediently.


For the spherical rod end bearing, the axial fastening is to make the bearing always in the position determined by the position, specifically relates to the bearing inner ring on the shaft of the fixed and outer ring in the outer shell fixed. Although the inner and outer ring of the bearing require accurate positioning, but not necessarily do the axial restrain at the same time to be fixed, which can be determined according to the requirements of the support.


Because in the supporting structure fixed at both ends of the spherical rod end bearing, each bearing only bears unidirectional axial load, it is necessary to fix it in one direction. In the supporting structure fixed at one end of the fixed end, the fixed end bears the bidirectional axial load, so the bidirectional axial restraint is required.


In addition, it will be involved in the device of the axial restraint of the spherical rod end bearing. Because of its various choices, we should consider the size of the axial load, speed, the type of bearing and the installation position on the shaft and demolition conditions and other factors in the selection.


Generally, if the axial load of the spherical rod end bearing is large and the rotating speed is high, the inner ring adopts locking screw and lock washer, and the outer ring is fastened with the end cover and threaded ring. On the contrary, the inner ring is required to use the elastic collar, tapered adapter-sleeve and withdrawal sleeve, and. the outer ring uses the elastic collar and snap ring.
