Technology for prolonging the service life of IKO flange bearing

  1. IKO flange bearing are a type of industrial roller bearing designed and produced by IKO, a renowned Japanese company known for their precision-engineered bearings. These bearings feature a compact design with a mounting flange, making them versatile and suitable for a variety of applications.
  2. IKO flange bearings are commonly used in automation and robotics, packaging machinery, and other industrial equipment where space is limited and precise motion control is required. With their durability and reliability, IKO flange bearings are a trusted choice for many industries.

The service life of IKO flange bearing

Bearing installation:Whether the IKO bearing is installed correctly affects the accuracy, service life and performance. Therefore, the design and assembly department should fully study the installation of flange bearing. It is hoped that the installation will be carried out according to the operating standards. Items of operating standards are usually as follows:Technology for prolonging the service life of IKO flange bearing

  • Cleaning of bearing and connecting parts;
  • Check the size and finish machining of related parts;
  • Inspection after installing the bearing;
  • lubricant.Technology for prolonging the service life of IKO flange bearing


  • If IKO is not carefully aligned after the bearing is installed, the alignment may cause the flange bearing to suffer additional load, friction and vibration. These may accelerate fatigue and reduce the service life of bearings, and may damage the service life of other machine parts. In addition, increased vibration and friction may greatly increase energy consumption and the risk of premature failure.Technology for prolonging the service life of IKO flange bearing

Basic condition monitoring

  • During use, the basic external conditions of flange bearing operation should be monitored frequently, such as temperature, vibration and noise measurement. These regular inspections will identify potential problems as soon as possible, prevent unexpected machine stoppage, realize the production plan and improve the productivity and efficiency of the plant.Technology for prolonging the service life of IKO flange bearing

Re lubrication

  • In the process of operation, IKO bearing requires correct re lubrication to perfect its performance. The methods of bearing lubrication are divided into grease lubrication and oil lubrication. In order to make the flange bearing function well, first of all, choose the lubrication method suitable for use conditions and purposes.
  • If only lubrication is considered, the lubricity of oil lubrication is dominant. However, grease lubrication has the advantage of simplifying the structure around the bearing.Technology for prolonging the service life of IKO flange bearing


  • The IKO bearing should be replaced when it reaches its final service life. Although the bearing can no longer be used, correctly removing the original bearing and replacing the new bearing in time can play a good role in prolonging the service life of the new flange bearing. 
  • First, the proper unloading method and the use of tools will help prevent damage to other machine components. Second, incorrect unloading technology may cause harm to the operator.Technology for prolonging the service life of IKO flange bearing

  • Good results can be obtained by using vibration absorption or vibration isolation devices to reduce the noise of bearings or isolate the noise of bearings, but this often costs a lot in economy. 
  • Sometimes, the mechanism becomes larger, the heat dissipation conditions become worse, or it is easy to rust. It should be fully considered when using. This method can be used only after other measures are taken and the low noise index can not be reached. A simple example is the centripetal ball bearing that bears the thrust instead of the thrust bearing at high speed. It can be sleeved with a plastic jacket filled with antirust lubricating oil on its outer ring. 
  • The thrust bearing with housing or general IKO bearing can be inlaid with the same plastic sleeve in its inner hole or outer circle if allowed, but the control can not rub or interfere with adjacent parts during rotation. 
  • This method has a certain silencing effect. Another example is to add an intermediate sleeve between the bearing and the seat hole, which can attenuate the vibration force transmitted by the rotating system to the bearing seat, but this requires proper allocation, otherwise the opposite effect may occur.
  • Another example is the use of sound absorption and sound insulation cover to completely close the bearing system with noise or as close as possible. The interior of the noise reduction cover is made of glass fiber or polyurethane foam, and the inner surface is 0.6- LMM thick steel sheet, evenly distributed on the surface. φ 1.2-1.5mm 
  • small through hole, the total area of which accounts for about 25% ~ 30% of the whole inner surface, and the outer surface is 2mm thick steel plate. Here, glass fiber or foam plastics are used to eliminate high frequency noise. The inner surface with small holes is used to eliminate the low frequency noise, while the thick steel plate on the outer surface is used to isolate the noise.
  • The method of changing the speed of the corresponding part of the main engine the noise of the clutch bearing is not very sensitive to the load, but it is very sensitive to the speed. If conditions permit, the same working purpose is achieved by reducing the speed and increasing the torque, but the noise is reduced.
