Recommended Shaft and Housing Fits

IntroductionSelection Guide Engineering DataBrochure

Proper mounting fits of ball bearings to shafts and in housings are critical to their performance. Excesively tight or excessively loose fits can result in premature bearing failures. Recommended fit values have been established which will facilitate optimum bearing performance.

The shaft and housing fits listed below apply to the Nice 1600 and 7500 series bearings. They may also be used for the housing fits only on the 3000, 7600, and 6900 series bearings.
