Supply of Bearings
We are able to supply many types of bearings for different applications and are able to manufacture bearings to suit our customers individual requirements. We have listed here just some of the manufacturers which we are able to supply:
Types and Application
Ball bearings probably the most common type,are used to provide smooth, low friction motion in rotary applications. They are usually found in applications where the load is relatively small.Ball bearings types include radial ball bearings (deep groove and angular contact) and thrust ball bearings.
Thrust bearings are designed for pure thrust loads, and can handle little or no radial load. The rolling element in a thrust bearing can be a ball, needle or roller.
Roller bearings are used in rotary applications to replace sliding movement with low friction, rolling motion. Usually used in applications like conveyer belt rollers, where they must hold heavy radial loads, however, this type of roller bearing is not designed to handle much thrust loading.The principal types of roller bearings are cylindrical, spherical, and tapered.
Cylindrical roller bearings have high radial-load capacity and moderate thrust loads. They contain rollers which are cylindrically-shaped, but crowned or end-relieved to reduce stress concentrations.
Spherical roller bearings are self-aligning, double row, combination radial and thrust bearings. They use a spherical or crowned roller as the rolling element.
Needle roller bearings are roller bearings, which have a high load carrying capacity with a very small section height. They are available with or without an inner ring. In all needle roller bearings, except for full complement needle roller bearings, the needle rollers themselves are guided parallel to the axis by a dimensionally stable cage
Taper roller bearing can support axial loads from one direction and high radial loads. The arrangement consists of solid inner and outer rings with tapered rollers with cages.
These bearings are not self supporting and are normally axially adjusted against a second bearing fitted in a mirror image arrangement. Bearings manufactured from special material can be offered for use under extreme conditions.
Linear bearings are used in applications where a component needs to be moved along a straight line with high accuracy. The object may also need to be returned to its origin with high repeatability. Linear bearings come in a variety of styles and have wide load capacities.
