What is the difference between a normal rolling bearing and a bespoke bearing?
Generally, a bespoke bearing is a rolling bearing, but with the addition of either atypical dimensions, integrated special features, or it fulfils certain ancillary features of the application or customer requirements.
Roller bearings in motor vehicles or in other applications are, generally, subject to stringent requirements of quality and precision. It comes down to accuracy, longevity and a strict adherence to the specification. Independent of whether needle bearing, deep groove ball bearing, angular bearing or above all bespoke bearings. Roller bearings must withstand strong forces, display a certain rigidity and guarantee a high degree of operational accuracy. In addition longevity, minimal vibration and low noise is expected.
Standard rolling bearings do a really good job within the framework of industrial applications. In many cases though, demands on compatibility to the respective customer interface are required. Conventional bearings cannot always adequately fulfil these demands and this is when so called bespoke bearings, presenting different characteristics, benefits and features, are designed, dependent upon the explicit application. As an expert in rolling bearings ROLLAX offers exactly this collaboration. We analyse your application and interfaces. Our design department changes the bearing geometry and, if necessary, introduces additional features that would under normal circumstances be achieved by additional components, and higher costs. The combination of different bearing types (e.g., Ball bearing and needle bearing) is also a viable option. The result is a bespoke bearing – made by ROLLAX.
