What to Know About BearingsBearings are used in a lot of different machines and equipment, but how much do you really know about them? The general definition for bearings is that they are used to prevent metal-to-metal contact between two parts by reducing friction and constraining relative motion to only the desired motion. By that definition, we can see the importance of them in many machines, especially high-speed spindles. With over 20,000 rpm, metal-to-metal contact would lead to a large amount of wear on the various parts, which would then result in repairs and replacement. High-speed spindles almost always ...
