In standard angular contact ball bearings, the forces are transmitted from one raceway to the other at a specific contact angle (oblique to the radial plane). The bearings are therefore suitable for radial and axial loads acting simultaneously.
As the nominal contact angle increases, so does the axial load carrying capacity. As a result, angular contact ball bearings are more suitable than deep groove ball bearings for supporting higher axial forces.
The bearings are available in a single row design as single bearings or as a pair of universal bearings as well as in a double row design. Show details
Standard Single row angular contact ball bearings are particularly suitable where:
bearing arrangements must support combined loads
moderate to high axial loads are present on one side
rigid axial guidance is required
the bearing arrangement must be axially clearance-free or preloaded
high speeds are required under higher radial and axial loads.
