Ball Bearings




Deep Groove Ball Bearings
Deep Groove Ball Bearings :

Deep groove ball bearings have deep, uninterrupted raceway grooves. These raceway grooves have a close osculation with the balls, enabling the bearings to accomodate radial and axial loads in both directions. These bearings are particularly versatile and are:
simple in design
non separable
suitable for high and even very high speeds
robust in operation, requiring little maintenance
Deep groove ball bearings are the most widely used bearing type. Consequently, they are available from SKF in many designs, variants, series and sizes.

 

Y-Bearings
Y-Bearings :

Y-bearings, which are usually refer to insert bearings, are based on sealed deep groove ball bearings in the 62 and 63 series, but have a convex outer ring and in most cases an extended inner ringwith a certain locking device enabling quick and easy mounting onto the shaft.
Y-bearings are available singly or as units. Y-bearing units consist of a housing, bearing and seal that is preassembled and greased at the factory. These ready-to-mount units can accommodate moderate initial misalignment (Demo) but normally do not enable axial displacement of the shaft. Y-bearings and Y-bearing units offer a simple, cost-effective solution that can provide a number of benefits.

Angular Contact Ball Bearings
Angular Contact Ball Bearings :

Angular contact ball bearings have raceways in the inner and outer rings that are displaced with respect to each other in the direction of the bearing axis. This means that they are designed to accommodate combined loads, i.e. simultaneously acting radial and axial loads. The axial load carrying capacity of angular contact ball bearings increases with increasing contact angle. The contact angle α is defined as the angle between the line joining the points of contact of the ball and the raceways in the radial plane, along which the load is transmitted from one raceway to another, and a line perpendicular to the bearing axis. SKF angular contact ball bearings are produced in a wide variety of designs and sizes.

 

Self-Aligning Ball Bearings
Self-Aligning Ball Bearings :

The self-aligning ball bearing was invented by SKF. It has two rows of balls and a common sphered raceway in the outer ring. The bearings are consequently self-aligning and insensitive to shaft deflections and angular misalignment of the shaft relative to the housing. Additionally, self-aligning ball bearings generate less friction than any other type of rolling bearing, which enables them to run cooler even at high speeds. Self-aligning ball bearings are available with either a cylindrical or tapered bore. Bearings with a tapered bore can be mounted directly on a shaft or on an adapter or withdrawal sleeve.

 

Thrust Ball Bearings
Thrust Ball Bearings :

Thrust ball bearings are produced as single direction or double direction thrust ball bearings. They are designed to accommodate axial loads only and must not be subjected to any radial load. SKF thrust ball bearings are separable, i.e. the shaft washer, housing washer(s), ball and cage assembly(s) can be mounted separately. Shaft washers have a ground bore to enable an interference fit. The bore of the housing washer is turned and always larger than the shaft washer bore.

 

Angular Contact Thrust Ball Bearings
Angular Contact Thrust Ball Bearings :

angular contact thrust ball bearings shown here were originally designed to support the rotary tables of drilling rigs but are also suitable for other applications where high load carrying capacity, high axial stiffness and low friction torque are important. In contrast to conventional thrust ball bearings, angular contact thrust ball bearings can accommodate radial loads in addition to axial loads and are able to operate at high speeds.
SKF angular contact thrust ball bearings are produced in a wide variety of designs and sizes.
