Locating Ring

Locating Ring
Locating rings are a type of bearing accessory that is used to secure a bearing axially in a housing. They are especially useful when the bearing seat in the housing and the bearing width do not match. Locating rings are typically placed on both sides of the bearing, but if only one is required, it should be installed on the same side as the lock nut.

Features and benefits:
  • Prevent bearings from slipping or moving out of position
  • Securely axially locate bearings in housings

Q: Can locating rings be used in heavy-duty applications?

Yes, locating rings are often used in heavy-duty applications, such as mining equipment, construction machinery, and material handling systems, where precise bearing positioning is crucial.
