Electrical motor bearings support several functions, including transference of loads from the shaft to the motor frame, as well as supporting the rotor and ensuring space between rotor and stator.
The correct bearing will enable this while minimising power losses and lowering the chances of bearing failure, which can cause considerable downtime in some cases.
Depending on the application, BTC Engineering offers a range of optimised products, including ceramic coated insulated bearings and electrically conductive seals. Other bearing features include:
- Optimisation of internal configuration and surfaces for lower friction, noise and vibration.
- A wide range of materials, including ceramic balls and special coatings.
- Resistance to high radial loads and moderate thrust loads in both directions.
- Increased bearing life and lower maintenance requirement and cost.
