    What is a stainless steel flange

    A Flange or ms flange is an outer or inward edge, or edge (lip), for quality, as the rib of an iron shaft, for example, an I-pillar or a T-bar; or for connection to another item, as the rib on the finish of a funnel, steam chamber, and so on., or on the focal point mount of a camera; or for a rib of a rail vehicle or cable car wheel. Consequently flanged wheels will be wheels with a spine on one side to prevent the w...

    What is the difference between bush and collar, and hub and flange

    A bush is a mechanical fixing between two, possibly moving, parts, or a strengthened fixing point where one mechanical assembly is attached to another. In a car or other vehicle's suspension, bushes are used to connect the various moving arms and pivot points to the chassis and other parts of the suspension. Shaft collars are useful in machine applications for holding components on shafts. They serve as mechanical st...

    Why and where are bearings used

    Sometimes the most useful devices in physics and engineering are the simplest ones. Ball bearings show how metal rings can be extremely versatile. As you can see in so many common items such as vehicles, bicycles, skateboards and other machines that involve moving metallic parts, humans have used the power of ball bearings for centuries. Ball Bearing Uses Imagine sliding across a soft carpet while wearing shoes. It c...

    What is journal in bearings

    All rotating shafts have to be supported. For this purpose we go in the for the use of bearings. In the process of supporting the shaft loss of power in the form of frictional heat due to rubbing of the bearing and shaft is to be avoided. This is ensured by going in for rolling contact bearings or journal bearings. We see a shaft supported in ball bearings. The inner race is press fitted to the shaft and the outer ra...

    What is the purpose of a bearing

    A “bearing” may be any feature of a device that supports and/or restricts degrees of freedom (movement and forces in any specific direction) of another device feature that is loaded with force that may be dynamic or static. Bearings may conform to a circle or cylinder, a flat or a contoured surface. Bearings generally are expected to reduce friction and heat and provide for efficient, smooth and quiet operation and m...
