High Load Roller Bearing (HLRB)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: John Jude, Engineering Director – (630) 466-7664
Award Amount: $289,800.00
Abstract:
HMC"s approach to Phase I HLRB roller bearing design was to achieve separation of the radial and axial functions of the bearing so as to enable axial bearing movement independent of bearing rotation. HMC"s rationale for this approach was that the delineation of axial and radial loads will… More
