This paper describes some results of an experiment aimed at monitoring of contact fatigue during the axial bearings tests. The needful of AE set-up for measuring of signal and Axmat stand for testing is presented here. The measuring of some kind of bearings required the creation of new clamping elements (Segment and Bearing bush) to the existing key point of Axmat stand. The results in this paper show records in the time domain mainly for counts and events. These events are filtered by maximal amplitude for better response on signal changes during the lifetime record. For these evaluated records there are shown the final failures of tested bearings and possible causes of failures beginning.
