Rolling element bearings are critical components of rotating machines, and fault in the bearing can cause the machine to fail. Bearing failure is one of the leading causes of failure in various rotating machines used in industry at high and low speeds. As a result, early detection of such defects could prevent failure of the industrial sector or machinery by replacing rolling element bearing and the severity of damage under operating conditions of the bearing, which may help avoid machine malfunctioning. Defective bearings cause vibration, and these vibration signals can be used to evaluate the faulty bearings. This article provides a brief overview of recent trends in bearing fault detection techniques. Finally, it is concluded that vibration analysis technique and other fault diagnostics and condition monitoring of rolling element bearings, fault detection techniques produce better results.
