NSK’s new Bearing Replacement Guide is a comprehensive specification and selection guide that enables users to convert other bearing designations to NSK bearing references. This is useful if, for example, a bearing requires replacement but it has been withdrawn or is no longer available from the original supplier.
The guide is said to include some of the highest performing industrial and precision bearings available. Its layout and content have been specifically designed to help bearing users, machine rebuilders and bearing distributors select the best type of replacement bearings for their applications.
Replacement part numbers are provided for metric bearings – ball, cylindrical, spherical and angular contact bearings - in bore diameters from 2-220mm. Imperial sizes are listed from 1/8inch bore to 57.15inch. It has simple at-a-glance tabular formats for ease of use, and includes a useful section, with accompanying flowchart, that provides step-by-step instructions on how to order replacement bearings.
Extending to 272 pages, the guide is divided into twelve sections dealing with all aspects of bearing terminology. In addition to interchange part numbers, there are sections regarding bearing types, selection, care and maintenance, inspection, and failure types.
One section of the guide is devoted to NSK’s super precision bearings for machine tool applications. This includes the high-speed Robust series bearings, together with data on conventional angular-contact bearings, thrust bearings, cylindrical roller bearings, and ball screw support bearings.
