Insert Bearings are specifically designed for mounting on shafts without using adapters, lock-nuts, or shoulders. They are popular in many applications because of their versatility. Some of the industries that use these insert bearings are conveyors, food and beverage processing, and packaging to name a few. The bearing is typically locked in place. The inner ring usually extends on both sides of the bearing to provide extra shaft support.
The insert elements consist of a cage, sprags - number in relation to the shaft size - and a spring to preload the friction contact between the sprags and the mating parts.
Insert elements are not self centering and require additional bearing support for proper function.
In addition to the insert elements we offer the GMN Roller bearings.
On Free-Wheel Clutches there is an important influence of design of the mating parts for defining the torque capacity. Read More
