Bearings – Ball and Roller
Rolling bearings divide into two main classifications; ball bearings and roller bearings. Rolling bearings can be further classified according to the direction in which the load is applied; radial bearings carry radial loads and thrust bearings carry axial loads.
Other classification methods include number of rolling rows (single, double or 4 row), seperable and non-seperable, in which either the inner ring or the outer ring can be detached.
There are also bearings designed for special applications such as, ball screw support bearings, turntable bearings as well as linear motion bearings.
