Movement analyses of bearings focusing on cage motion behavior are often conducted by simulations, typically by investigating the cage whirl. Some experimental studies exist in which a metal cage or a modified one is analyzed with sensors. This paper presents an image-based approach for investigating the cage motion of an injection molded, window-type cage under operation condition. Besides analyses at constant rotational speed, the cage center movement behavior for different accelerations is investigated.
