An image of various bearings, and other components layed out.

Maintaining your business’s machinery is important for any manufacturer, and when a machine’s bearing fails, it can mean more than just down time. Bearing failure can be an expensive ordeal for any manufacturing business, and shutdowns and slowdowns due to the time it could take to find a replacement part can add to the cost. Making sure that your team is able to identify the early signs of failure is important for preventing disastrous malfunctions.

If you’ve noticed any drop in a machine’s efficiency, or if it can’t handle a workload that you’ve given it, it is likely that your machine’s bearings are about to fail. Improper installation, improper maintenance, electrical plating, mishandling of bearings, and even the use of an improper lubricant can all play a part in causing damage, corrosion, or even total failure of a machine bearing. Looking out for factors like these can help you and your employees maintain your machine’s functionality.
