SLT 08 - Dismounting of rolling element bearings & Failure analysis
(SLT 08)

Dismounting bearings can cause damage to both the bearings and associated components, such as shafts, if incorrect tools and techniques are used. When shafts and bearings are damaged during bearing dismounting, there is often a cost penalty in both time and materials. In addition, the use of the wrong tools and techniques for dismounting can be hazardous to the operator, especially due to the high forces involved.
