The bearing adapter sleeve is a commonly used component to locate bearings with a tapered bore into a cylindrical seating. They can be used on stepped or smooth shafts. The design is helpful in installation and disassembly. It can ensure the machine has stable performance and reduces the maintenance of the device.
Importance of a Bearing Adapter Sleeve
The bearing adapter sleeves can use the lock nuts and tab washers for attaching and securing the bearings with a tapered bore into the cylindrical shaft seats. This component can be attached to the shafts, whether stepped or smooth. They can also be detached fast if needed.
When the bearing adapter sleeve is installed, it can overcome the bearing’s axial movement. However, the accuracy will depend on the shaft’s radial runout. It can be adjusted to relax the machining accuracy.
Applications of Bearing Adapter Sleeve
It is effortless to maintain and used where speed and time are of the essence. They can be placed in any position along the shaft. It is an excellent substitute for clamping devices, especially when machining cannot be done. They usually find applications in areas where light loads can quickly assemble and disassemble.
The bearing adapter sleeves belong to the category of sliding bearings. They are mainly used in printing and dyeing, papermaking, engineering machinery, metallurgical, automotive, aerospace, chemical, coal, petroleum, and other industries.
