  • Publication number: 20220389955
    Abstract: A non-locating bearing assembly includes a bearing unit configured to support a rotating component relative to a stationary component, the bearing unit including a stationary bearing ring and a rotatable bearing ring that are rotatable with respect to each other. The rotatable bearing ring is fixedly connectable to the rotating component, and the stationary bearing ring is mountable in the stationary component in a rotationally fixed but axially displaceable manner. A connector is provided between the stationary bearing ring and the stationary component to connect the bearing ring to the stationary component in an axially displaceable but substantially rotationally fixed manner, and the connection is provided by a combination of a friction fit and an interference fit acting in the circumferential direction.
