Advantages of rolling bearings compared to plain bearingsDisadvantages of rolling bearings compared to plain bearings
– Low friction, therefore low heat development
– No stick-slip effect (starting torque barely greater than the operating torque)
– Low lubricant requirement
– Hardly any care and maintenance necessary
– Good standardisation and dimension principles, therefore easily replaceable
– Change of direction possible without constructive modification
– Sensitive to shock and vibration at standstill and low speed
– Limited maximum speed and service life
– Sensitive to dirt accumulation
– Expensive construction
– Higher noise level
