Design of a Bearing Housing

Design of a Bearing Housing

Design and provide ENGINEERING DRAWINGS of a bearing housing.

Dimensions of the bearing housing will depend on your student number.

The Bearing housing assembly is composed by 4 components, plus bolts:

1. Base of the pedestal
2. Top of the pedestal
3. Bearing (plain bearing for rapidly rotating shafts)
4. Locking Pin (interference fitting with bearing, loose fitting with pedestal)
5. Two Bolts (M12, thread length 35 mm)

Drawings are provided for the components. The student will follow the
provided drawings to redesign the components with specific dimensions.

The student is free to select a suitable design for the bolts

The student must ensure that each component is FULLY DIMENSIONED and
annotated

If your Student number is ABCDEF:

Dimensions:
Half length of Pedestal base = 104+A =
…………………………….. mm
Height of Pedestal base = 60 + B =
……………………………… mm
Diameter of hole in bearing = 32- C =
………………………………. mm

See components drawings for details.

 

 

 

The student is required to provide the following engineering drawings:

3 sheets in total: sheet format: A3 BSI (NOT A4 paper) showing:

Sheet 1: Front and Top views of Pedestal base (scale 1:2)
Front and top view of Pedestal top (scale 1:2)

Sheet 2: Front, top and Lateral view of bearing (scale 1:2)
Front and Top view of pin (scale 1:1)
Front and top view of one bolt (scale 1:1)

Sheet 3: Assembly view (Front and Top, isometric view, Bill of materials)

All front, top and lateral views should be correctly dimensioned with hidden
details shown. There should be enough dimensions to be able to make the
component. No dimensions on assembly views.

To carry out the coursework, you will need Solidworks. You will need to
create the 3D models; from these, you will create the engineering drawings.
Information on Solidworks software installation for students has been given
early in the year and it has been emailed to you. In case of necessity,
Solidworks is available in PC laboratories in Bay campus.
