Bearings are crucial for smooth operations of railway vehicles and for the safety of commodities and people being transported. Lowering noise levels and vibrations, high load carrying capacities, and long life are the expectations of bearings in rail. Rail axle bearings are mounted to the wheel axle journal and are a link between the wheel and frame of the bogie. Bearing seals prevent contaminants such as dust, water, and other particles from affecting the performance of bearings and provide grease retention within the bearing area. There is a constant demand for bearings and any technological advancement would modify the existing bearing technology but would not replace them. Mobility requires bearings to redu
