Unlike the light applications where Ball Bearings are frequently utilised, Roller Bearings are usually used for heavy duty applications and especially for carrying heavy radial loads. Most Roller Bearings are cylindrical in shape which allows them to spread over a larger surface area. However, Roller Bearings are not ideal when it comes to handling thrust loads.
Bearing Shop UK offers Roller Bearings in varying sizes and styles. Our selection of Roller Bearings can be Floating Outer, Floating Inner or One Way Floating Inner. “Floating” is a term to indicate bearing rotation, whereas “inner” and “outer” determines whether the outer or the inner ring will rotate.
As a mechanical element, Roller Bearings are an ideal choice because:
- Their static and kinetic friction is low, making them energy efficient.
- Their stable accuracy can be sustained, even for long periods of time.
- They are able to improve the reliability of machines.
- They can be easily maintained with a grease lubricant.
