The study of skew and axial motion of the rollers in a rotating cylindrical roller bearing was continued. Signals from the distance gage, used in the measurement of roller skew and axial position of rollers, were tape recorded for four different operating conditions of an NU324 cylindrical roller bearing. The taped signals were recorded on an oscillograph, and skew angles and axial roller positions were computed for the four test conditions. The existing SKF two-ball machine was redesigned to study the initiation of smearing. The tester was also equipped with conductivity instrumentation for monitoring contact occurrences between the two balls under various test conditions. Design of a second two-ball tester to be used for wear tests in the Radio-tracer facility of the SKF Industries Research Laboratory is under way.
