SKFstronger Bearing life statistics

As for any mechanical device, bearings encounter variations in their life even in identical operating conditions. The Weibull statistics is commonly assumed to govern these variations (or randomness). The bearing life is rated using the L10 life, a key parameter of the Weibull statistics.
In this 35 minute recording our expert Sébastien Blachère will present the basic statistics needed to understand the meaning of this L10 life. Explanation is given on the correct interpretation of the L10 life, as well as higher reliability levels like the L5 or L1. Other strongly related topics like system life and life testing will be tackled.
