The design of the spherical roller bearing has been improved to give an increased fatigue life of some 200 per cent compared with that used in railway axleboxes for over 35 years. The principal feature of the spherical roller bearing, its self-aligning property, has not been affected by using only one spherical roller bearing per axlebox, but even in rigid boxes where two bearings are used side by side, the self-aligning property of this kind of bearing is still valuable. Test equipment for accelerated life tests is shown.
