Load directions for Extreme Bearings
Extreme Bearing units are intended for loads acting vertically towards the base plate support. Therefore, if the bearing housing is supported over its entire base, loads are limited only by the load limits of the bearing insert. If loads acting in other directions occur or if the housing is not supported over its entire base area, check that the magnitude of the load is permissible for the bolt assembly attached to the machine frame.
Loads acting vertically toward the base plate
Type EXF 4 bolt flange bearings
EXS pillow block bearings
The EXF bearing unit can be provided with a tensioner stud. In that case, the load can act in the opposite direction to the threaded rod. This is a unique feature of this type of Extreme Bearing.
