radial bearing

radial bearing

[′rād·ē·əl ′ber·iŋ]
(mechanical engineering)
A bearing with rolling contact in which the direction of action of the load transmitted is radial to the axis of the shaft.

In addition, the discharge through the radial bearing ensures a safe, clean, and even feeding on the next conveyor reducing loss of materials.
Figure 2 shows a simple depiction of a complete radial bearing that can be used to support the shaft of a rotating machine.
We confirmed that the shaft inaccuracy is the significant parameter influencing the coefficient a (in (1)) along with other important parameters such as tribology conditions, radial bearing clearance, load, and so on.
This combination of ceramic ball bearing on the fore vacuum side and permanently magnetic radial bearing on the high vacuum side provides a particularly robust bearing concept.
According to the definition of contact stiffness, the Hertz contact stiffness of ball radial bearing can be obtained as:
Further, each individual axle is mounted to a radial bearing that provides a tighter steering system for a more stable platform.
This configuration can be used as a radial bearing as it develops positive radial force and stiffness (negative axial force and stiffness).
Because the armature is a large radial bearing, performance in such critical areas as stiffness and runout are said to be superior to conventional, longer spindles.
The motor actually serves as the radial bearing, allowing a shorter overall length of the assembly.
They also must be identical in diameter and radial bearing surface to avoid bending pressures and stresses in the wheel structure.
