Power Tool Bearings

The handheld power tool industry demands product performance that delivers time and time again. A variety of conditions required by the handheld power tool segment include:

  • High reliability/ long performance life
  • Maintenance free
  • Ability to handle combined load conditions
  • Operation in a high-speed environment with low heat generation and low friction results
  • Reduced noise and vibration levels
  • Energy savings

There are several solutions available to help power tool manufacturers meet their required conditions. These include:

  • Selection of the proper grease for the appropriate application parameters which may include reducing heat or vibration
  • Use of the correct material for the rings, balls, and cage (in certain cases, specials materials can be utilized)
  • Removal of preload to reduce radial play which will improve vibration and noise levels
  • Proper mounting of the bearing
  • Selection of the proper closure system for the bearing, specifically designed seals to improve contamination prevention and reduce energy consumption
