MEMOTo: Dylan SmithFrom: Cindy NguyenSection: 907Date: 11/21/16Re: Lab 10 BearingsPurpose: The primary objective of this lab is to understand the working of bearings through simple experiments. Procedure: Given different bearings, students determined whether they were mounted or unmounted and their bore and outside diameters. Then presented with a SKF bearing students had to determine the replacement bearing from the TORRINGTONcatalog that met the characteristics of the existing bearing. Results:The results for the labs are enclosed in the attached forms. Conclusions/Recommendations: Bearings are used to support shafts and allow low friction motion between the two surfaces. There are different bearings for different applications and usage requirements. Seals and lubrication are required in bearings to help them run smoothly and efficiently. Students learned in this lab to identify different types of bearings along with learning how to use the catalog to find replacements bearings.
