Today we wanted to address a question that comes up quite often – are the design specs in bearing guides accurate? Unfortunately, the truth isn’t always clear, and lies somewhere between fact and fiction.
Bearing guide data (as provided by the manufacturer) is generally accurate, but the numbers are not the only factor that you should consider when sourcing a material. For complete accuracy, you need to look beyond the bearing specification numbers and consider the PROCESS that is used to make the material!
Without considering the process, a minor miscalculation can lead to a very costly production mistake - and we’ve got a video to review that (it's at the bottom of this post)!
