Understanding the ISO 15243 – Bearing damage modes and classiﬁcations
Due to the central role of bearings in many machines, avoiding bearing failures is key to improved machine performance. The ﬁrst step to avoid future bearing failures is proper identification of the failure mode.
- diﬀerent types of bearing failures, their
- classiﬁcation according to ISO 15243 and
- actions to avoid them.
Even though 90 % of bearings outlive the equipment they are in, understanding bearing failures is key to machine performance.
By examining a failed or damaged bearing, in many cases, it is possible to establish the root cause and deﬁne corrective actions to prevent a recurrence. This webinar is intended to provide a basic understanding of bearing failures and possible causes.
