Q16. How fast can a bearing rotate?

AST Bearings offers bearings that are capable of rotation in excess of 500,000 RPM.  These are typically used in experimental and defense applications.

However, the speed capability of a bearing will depend on its size, the type and amount of lubrication used, the bearing and cage materials, precision levels and tolerances, and for how long the the maximum speed is required (among other factors).
