Flange mounted bearings are used when the shaft axis is perpendicular to the bearing mounting surface. They incorporate a sealed bearing that is preassembled into a flanged housing.
Flange bearing have several different types and they are engineered to meet specific requirements of the application or situation. Different types of these Bearings come with different design, cages, load capacities as well as different performance. These Bearings are designed to mount ball bearing with high precision and performance, because these Bearings are highly sturdy, water resistant and dirt resistance, they are suitable for providing mounting for other apparatuses with rotary or linear motion.
Although there are several different types, models and variations of these Bearings yet basically they come with two basic structures, vertical mounting and horizontal mounting also known as Insert Bearings and Flange Mounted Bearings. Both of these types have different applications, load carrying capacity and performance.
These Bearings are used in several different industries and machines, they are widely used in automation, machine construction, agricultural machines, food industry, conveyor technology and industry as well as other industries that need high carrying capacity.
These Bearings are made with different materials, they are widely made with cast iron while some manufacturers even made it with plastic to reduce the cost while maintaining the performance and load carrying capacity. This particular material is not only maintained temperature resistance but also offers durability and stability while being more cost-efficient as compared to the metal these Bearings.
In some rare cases, Flange Bearings are made with pressed steel that offers a slightly lesser performance yet high stability and durability even under stressful conditions.
