1. Support mechanical rotating body

The main function of the bearing is to support the mechanical rotating body, reduce its friction coefficient during movement, and ensure its rotation accuracy. At the same time, bearings are also components that fix and reduce the load friction coefficient during mechanical transmission.

2. Reduce friction and make rotation smoother

The function of bearings is to reduce friction and make rotation smoother. There will definitely be friction between the rotating "shaft" and the rotating support part, and bearings can reduce friction, make the rotation smoother, and reduce energy consumption. This is the biggest role of bearings. Bearings play a supporting role between the rotating "shaft" and the rotating support part, reducing friction generated during rotation, thereby reducing energy consumption. Therefore, bearings play an important role in industrial production, improving work efficiency and reducing production costs.

3. The function of the bearing is to protect the rotating support part from the force of rotation and ensure the normal operation of the machine.

4. Bear radial load

Deep groove ball bearing is a structural bearing with a continuous groove raceway and one-third of the spherical surface of the equatorial circumference. It is mainly used to bear radial loads and can also bear certain axial loads. When the radial clearance of the bearing increases, it has the characteristics of an angular contact ball bearing and can withstand bidirectional alternating axial loads. Compared with other types of bearings of the same size, this kind of bearing has a small friction coefficient, high limit speed and high precision. It is the preferred bearing type for users. The main uses of deep groove ball bearings include automobiles, tractors, machine tools, motors, water pumps, agricultural machinery, textile machinery, etc.

5. Temperature and noise control

The function of bearings is to control temperature and noise. Bearings generate friction and heat when operating, but this heat needs to be kept to a minimum in order to distribute the rolling elements evenly, thereby reducing noise. This is the principle of bearing temperature and noise control. By controlling temperature and noise, bearings can maintain stable operating conditions and improve bearing service life and performance.

6. Guidance function

One of the functions of bearings is guidance. In the load-free zone, guiding the rolling elements improves the rolling conditions in the bearing and prevents damaging sliding. This is because the bearings rub or collide with the ground or equipment surface during operation, generating friction, thereby reducing the wear of the bearings due to friction. Through the guiding effect, the bearing can maintain a stable operating state and increase the service life of the bearing.
