Bearings are important mechanical components that help in maintaining the linear and rotational movements of a machine and it is important they are maintained properly to ensure long operational life.
Bearings play a significant role in the free and unrestricted movement of mechanical parts or components, from your car wheels to your skateboards as well as many other things too. Bearings bear the weight of the load and make things move without any or with much less friction. In a world without bearings, mechanically moving parts will malfunction and stick, preventing smooth operation. Bearing life can be affected based on the type of bearing, the load they are asked to carry, and the maintenance schedule. Properly maintained, bearing life can be extended and downtime can be reduced.
