The right handling of ball bearings related to storage, installation-preparation and grease distribution processes ensures unlimited use, optimal performance characteristics and long life expectancy.
Proper storage of GMN products ensures bearing-specific performance characteristics until they are installed.
Shelf life of preserved and grease lubricated ball bearings: max. 2 years (with proper storage)
Careful preparation of the installation environment and relevant
components assure unrestricted utilization of GMN ball bearing
Information on the mounting and installation of GMN spindle bearings and ball bearings.
In this case, the ball bearing is correctly pressed onto the shaft with a fixed position. The installation forces are only introduced through the inner ring. The balls and grooves remain force-free and undamaged.
In the case that two fixed seats are provided, the bearing can be pressed evenly over both rings, and thus installed.
This ensures that the balls and grooves are undamaged.
In the case of oil-lubricated bearings, no particular break-in process is generally prescribed, but it has proved to be advantageous if

The required grease distribution process ensures even bearing lubrication, and optimizes distribution of the lubricating grease in the bearing (grease thickener is removed from the ball rolling area, and the basic oil evenly wets the greased areas).
