Types of Bearings and Their Uses

Numerous rolling bearing types are classified according to their design features and uses. While the main load direction creates the distinction between radial and thrust bearings, the shapes of the rolling elements divide them into ball and roller bearings. Bearings are also classified by the manner in which the rolling bearings guide a shaft, for […]

Do Ball Bearings Reduce Friction?

Ball bearings are often used for reducing friction within a mechanical assembly. Bearings can be categorized into three basic types: Ball & Roller Ball and Roller bearings are classified as anti-friction bearings because they rely on a rolling element between two surfaces to reduce friction. The anti-friction component is the rolling element of either a ball […]
