Steel Ball Bearings offer smooth and quiet operation.

Press Release Summary:




Explorer deep groove, single-row ball bearings feature optimized raceways and cage geometry to promote precision with running accuracy to ISO tolerance class P5 and ABMA ABEC Class 5. Products also offer dimensional accuracy to ISO tolerance Class 6 and ABMA ABEC Class 3 as well as width tolerance tighter than ISO tolerance class Normal. Sealing designs maximize grease retention, providing protection against contaminants without compromising speed.



Original Press Release:



SKF® Explorer Deep Groove Ball Bearings can run Smoother, Quieter, and Longer



New SKF® Explorer deep groove ball bearings benefit from advanced design, material, and manufacturing-process innovations to achieve smooth and quiet operation, high running accuracy, increased speed capability, lower friction and operating temperatures, and longer service life.

These versatile single-row bearings perform ideally in applications demanding smooth-running performance, higher speed capability, less vibration, and extended service life. Application examples include electric motors, gearboxes, and equipment utilized in the packaging, food and beverage, medical, general manufacturing, and construction industries.

Among their features and benefits, optimized raceways and cage geometry promote improved precision with running accuracy to ISO tolerance class P5 and ABMA ABEC Class 5 (up to 52mm outside diameter); dimensional accuracy to ISO tolerance Class 6 and ABMA ABEC Class 3; and width tolerance tighter than ISO tolerance class Normal. These enable smooth-running performance, higher speed capability, less vibration, and extended service life.

Tight width tolerances further provide designers with an ability to reduce overall tolerance stackup in a shaft system.

Advanced sealing designs for these bearings maximize grease retention and provide protection against contaminants without compromising speed capabilities. Lubricant options in sealed or shielded versions include ultra-quiet, food quality, and high-temperature greases. Specially developed finishes on all contact surfaces reinforce the effects of lubrication. All combine to reduce friction and enhance bearing operation.

SKF Explorer deep groove ball bearings are manufactured from steel exhibiting low oxygen content, which serves to extend their life and reduce fatigue failure by preventing the formation of fatigue-causing oxide inclusions in the steel.

SKF Explorer deep groove ball bearings are available in a wide range of bore sizes and dimensions. Customized bearings can be developed to meet specific end-user requirements.
