1)

For ball bearings with D 100 mm, the tolerance grade IT6 is often preferable and is
recommended for bearings with thin-walled rings, e.g. in the 7, 8 or 9 Diameter
Series. For these series, the cylindricity tolerances IT4 are also recommended.
3)

When easy displacement is required use the tolerance class H6 instead of J6.

1)
For normally to heavily loaded ball bearings (P > 0,05 C), radial clearance greater than Normal is often needed when the shaft tolerance
table above are used. Sometimes the working conditions require tighter fits to prevent ball bearing inner rings from turning (creeping) on
proper clearance, mostly larger than Normal clearance is selected, the tolerance classes below can then be used:

k4 for shaft diameters 10 to 17 mm n6 for shaft diameters (140) to 300 mm

k5 for shaft diameters (17) to 25 mm p6 for shaft diameters (300) to 500 mm

m5 for shaft diameters (25) to 140 mm

For additional information please contact the SKF application engineering service.
2)
The tolerance class in brackets applies to stainless steel bearings.
3)
For stainless steel bearings within the diameter range 17 to 30 mm, the tolerance class j5 applies.
4)
Bearings with radial internal clearance greater than Normal may be necessary.
5) Bearings with radial internal clearance greater than Normal are recommended for d 150 mm. For d > 150 mm bearings with radial inte
greater than Normal may be necessary.
6)
Bearings with radial internal clearance greater than Normal are recommended.
7) Bearings with radial internal clearance greater than Normal may be necessary. For cylindrical roller bearings radial internal clearance grea
Normal is recommended.
9) The tolerance class in brackets apply to tapered roller bearings. For lightly loaded tapered roller bearings adjusted via the inner ring, the
js5 or js6 should be used.
10)
The tolerance class f6 can be selected for large bearings to provide easy displacement.
