Needle Bearings, also known as "Needle Roller Bearings", are Bearings that utilise small cylindrical rollers instead of the usual steel or metal balls found in Ball Bearings. These particular Bearings have a large surface area that is in contact with the Bearing outer surface, with less added clearance, making them more compact.
Bearing Shop UK offers a number of Needle Bearings ideal for light duty, medium duty or heavy duty applications of different styles and sizes. Needle Bearings usually rely heavily on different components used in the automobile industry such as Rocker Arm Pivots, Transmissions, Drive Shafts, Compressors, and Pumps.
Compared to typical Roller Bearings, Needle Bearings have an advantage because:
- Their low sectional height enables them to support heavy loads. They offer a more cost-effective solution by making machines more compact and lightweight.
- Their small rotating torque, due to a small rotating radius, improves mechanical efficiency even when subjected to frictional conditions.
- Their small Bearing volume and weight allows Needle Bearings to minimise resistance, even when in motion.
- They are ideal to use in machines requiring oscillating or vibrating motions.
