Needle bearings are an ideal solution for engineers looking to save costs. A low sectional height in comparison to other rolling bearings provides them the ability to withstand heavy loads allows machines to be made compact and lightweight.


IKO needle bearings are produced in conformance at the quality level of ISO-14001 and ISO-0001. Advantages to IKO needle rollers are that they are small sized and lightweight with a large load capacity. Many types are available including thrust needle roller, shell type, machined type and combined type needle roller bearings.


INA offers precision ground needle as well as drawn shell needle bearings. Drawn Shell needle bearings are available in different design styles including full complement. Manufactured for maximum capacity in a small radial space, they are low friction and can produce high speeds. INA’s precision ground needle bearings are available in popular metric and inch dimensions. They are available in sealed, higher precision and with heat stabilization. Retainer guide needles allow for full length contact causing long bearing life.
