The double tapered roller bearing is widely used in mechanical equipment, due to its complex structure, traditional safety detection is difficult to recognize early weak fault. In order to solve this problem, a deep learning method for safety detection of roller bearing is put forward. In experiment, vibration signals of bearing are firstly separated into a series of intrinsic mode functions by empirical mode decomposition, then we extracted the transient energy to construct eigenvectors. In pattern recognition, deep learning method is used to generate safety detector by unsupervised study. There are three states rolling bearings in experiments, as normal, inner fault and outer fault. The results show that the proposed method is more stable and accurately to identify bearing faults, and the classification accuracy is 98%.
