A ball race is a precision instrument that has been manufactured under highly controlled conditions. To ensure you get the maximum benefit from your bearings please have a look at our guide to handling high precision bearings and assemblies where we discuss tips and recommendations such as:
- Keeping bearings in a CLEAN, DRY sealed container in their original packing until ready for use;
- Avoiding contamination from fingers by using latex gloves or a barrier cream should be used when handling bearings or their mating parts; and
- Taking extra care with open unshielded bearings.
We at Principle Engineering understand that it is not always possible to work in perfect conditions, that is why we hope these minimum standards aim to help you get the best results every time. If we can be of further assistance in the design or application please contact us.
