Title: DEVICE FOR CLAMPING A BEARING RING TO THE SURROUNDING STRUCTURE THEREOF
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device for clamping a bearing ring (4) to the surrounding structure (2) thereof. According to the invention, a spring arrangement (6) or the like is disposed between the bearing ring (4) and the surrounding structure (2) that receives same, said spring arrangement being concentric with respect to the bearing axis and widening radially under axial clamping pressure. Means (10) are also provided in order to clamp the spring arrangement (6) in an axial manner. A frictional engagement occurs between the spring arrangement and the shaft (2) on one side and the bearing ring (4) on the other side dependent on the preload that is applied such that said spring arrangement, shaft, and bearing ring are connected to each other in a frictionally engaged manner.
