3 digits
Why do bearings always have 3 digits | Superprof.

What are bearing codes?

The first digit indicates the width or height series (dimensions B, T or H). The second digit identifies the diameter series (dimension D). The last two digits of the basic designation identify the size code of the bearing bore. The size code multiplied by 5 gives the bore diameter (d) in mm.

How do you find the OD and bearing ID?

It is important to note that our bearing measurements are all done in the following order: Inside diameter (ID) x Outside diameter (OD) x Width (W).

What is a 6203 ZZ bearing?

The 6203 is a 17 mm Ball Bearing that can be used in many rotary and factory automation applications. The 6203 Deep Groove Ball Bearings is an open style bearing. The 6203Z ball bearing is a single row raceway and single shielded. The 6203ZZ ball bearing has a single row raceway and it is shielded on each side.

What does Z mean in bearings?

Bearing Numbers Explained Bearing with rubber seal on one side, one side open. 2 Z / ZZ. Bearing with a metal seal on both sides. Z. Bearing with a metal seal on one side, one side open.

Why do we use 3 digits for bearings?

known point. A bearing is a direction, expressed as a three-figure number. Bearings are measured clockwise from north. Bearings are always given as three figures because if you only wrote down 35°, it could easily be mistaken for 350°.

What does P5 mean on a bearing?

Class 5
Comparing ANSI, DIN & ISO Bearing Standards

ANSI Standard* DIN 620* ISO 492*
ABEC 1 P0 Class Normal
ABEC 3 P6 Class 6
ABEC 5 P5 Class 5
ABEC 7 P4 Class 4

What is C3 clearance in bearing?

Internal clearance being C3 means that the bearing has room for expansion if needed between the races of the bearing, whilst holding the outer ring and moving the inner ring in a radial movement you will detect a little amount of play between the two rings.

What size is a 6203 bearing?


d 17 mm Bore diameter
D 40 mm Outside diameter
B 12 mm Width
d1 ≈ 24.5 mm Shoulder diameter
D2 ≈ 34.98 mm Recess diameter

What is the formula for bearing?

Meaning of used variables:

C r basic dynamic radial load rating, [lbforce, N]
Fa bearing axial load = axial component of the actual bearing load, [lbforce, N]
F r bearing radial load = radial component of the actual bearing load[lbforce, N]
n shaft rotates, [rpm]
L regr required rating life, in 10 6 revolutions, [Mr]

What size is a 6205 bearing?


d 25 mm Bore diameter
D 52 mm Outside diameter
B 15 mm Width
d1 ≈ 34.35 mm Shoulder diameter
D2 ≈ 46.21 mm Recess diameter

What size is a 6003 bearing?


Bore diameter 17 mm
Outside diameter 35 mm
Width 10 mm

What does LLB mean on a bearing?

LLB = light contact, dual lip, nitrile rubber, steel insert. LLU = full contact, dual lip, nitrile rubber, steel insert.

What does C mean on a bearing?

internal clearance
The C code of the bearing indicates how much internal clearance the bearing gets in the machine. Your choice is crucial to prevent your bearings from having too much internal clearance. The size of the internal bearing clearance largely determines the operational performance of the bearings.

Are bearings always 3 digits?

A bearing is a direction. It is always measured clockwise from North….Three-figure bearings.

North 000 ∘
South East 135 ∘
South 180 ∘
South West 225 ∘
West 270 ∘

What does DDU mean on bearing?

DDU = Seals on both sides. RS1 = Seal on one side. RSH = Seal on one side.

What does J mean in bearing?

“J” Type: Two piece ribbon consisting of two halves that are assembled one half from one side, and the other half from the opposite side. Fold down tabs secure the two halves. This type of cage is guided by the balls. “Loose” clinch type provides lower torque. Material is type 302 stainless steel.

What is C5 in bearing?

C codes for degree of bearing clearance If a bearing has a C code, it offers extra internal clearance. C1 offers the least extra clearance, C5 offers the most extra clearance. The extra margin C3 offer is considered ‘normal’. Bearings with C3 are in fact the most commonly used.

What is C1 C2 C3 bearing clearance?

Radial bearing clearance is broken down into several groups: C1, C2, CN, C3, C4, and C5. CN is the “normal clearance” and is defined by DIN 620 and ISO 5753 and is used for bearings in normal operating conditions; C1 and C2 class bearing have radial clearances smaller than CN.

How many segments are there in a bearing code?

The code is broken down into five segments. The first segment represents the basic bearing number and the remaining four segments represent the supplementary bearing number. Each of these code segments has a standard list of options associated with it.

What is the bearing code and how do engineers use it?

Engineers can use the code to configure a bearing with the features required for their specific application (a stainless steel deep groove ball bearing with a metal seal on each side, for example). While some manufacturers adhere to this numbering system, others have developed their own.

What do the numbers and letter combinations of bearings mean?

The number and letter combinations have the following meaning: The first digit or letter or combination of letters identifies the bearing type and eventually a basic variant. The following two digits identify the ISO dimension series.

What do the digits in brackets mean on SKF bearing designations?

The digits in brackets belong to the system, but are not used in the series designation in practice. The designations of most SKF rolling bearings follow a system that consists of a basic designation with or without one or more prefixes and/or suffixes, as shown in the table and the examples below.
