Fitting the Inner Ring to the Shaft

I don’t recall a time during the startup of a new program where an engineer unfamiliar with heavy load p1axle testing didn’t want to completely stop a bearing from turning on a shaft. The logic is reasonable; if a hard pressed metal on metal surface is slipping, there is going to be material movement. If there is true turning on the bearing on a shaft, that can certainly be true and must be corrected by tightening up the fit, but most of the time, the indications of movement is just a creeping movement driven by the mechanics of the load. If we have a good press fit, something above 100 MPa of hoop stress, it doesn’t take long to realize that the bearing cannot transmit enough torque through the rollers to turn the cone.
