Electrical motors are a necessary power source for countless applications throughout a wide range of industries. Like any motor, Electrical Motors need bearings to facilitate smooth, quiet, and efficient rotation while addressing critical needs such as high load capacity, long life spans, and low running noise, all of which are important qualities in a bearing. Not only is it important to use high-quality bearings, but as they are the driving force for a variety of applications, identifying the right bearing for a specific application is equally critical. There are seven main types of bearings found in electric motors. This blog will explain each of them, their unique characteristics, and some of their applications.
