Deep groove ball bearings

Photo: Deep groove ball bearings

The most typical type of bearing, these are used in a wide range of fields. They include grease-enclosed sealed and shield bearings for ease of use.

Other types include bearings with a locating snap-ring to facilitate positioning when mounting the outer ring, expansion compensating bearings that absorb variations in bearing fitting surface dimensions due to housing temperature, and TAB bearings that are resistant to contamination in lubricating oil.

Angular contact ball bearings

Photo: Angular contact ball bearings

In these ball bearings, the direct line that connects the inner ring, balls, and outer ring has a given angle in the radial direction (the contact angle).

This angle is generally designed with three kinds of contact angle.

These bearings can bear axial loads, but because of the contact angle cannot be used singly and must be used in pairs or combinations.

Four-point contact ball bearings

These are angular contact ball bearings with the inner ring divided into two. When the outer ring and inner ring are pushed in the radial direction, the balls make contact with the inner ring and outer ring at four points. One bearing is able to bear an axial load from both directions, and can be used in a two-point contact state under a general pure axial load or under a composite load with large axial load.

Ball bearings for rolling bearing units

NTN uses the same steel balls and cage as used in the 62.63 deep groove ball bearing series. In addition, the units feature a double seal that combines oil-resistant synthetic rubber seals on both sides and NTN's unique slinger (also called flinger).

The products include those with a wide inner ring that is tightened to the shaft with screws having mounting balls at two locations, and those that have a tapered bore caliber surface and are mounted on the shaft using an adapter. There are also products using the off-center collar method in which the inner ring is fixed on the shaft by means of an off-center groove on the inner groove and an off-center groove on the collar, and those in which the inner ring is mounted on the shaft through interference between the inner ring and shaft, as in the deep groove ball bearing products.

Cylindrical roller bearings

These use rollers as the rolling elements and have a high load capacity. The rollers are guided by the ribs of the inner or outer ring. The inner and outer rings can be separated to facilitate assembly, and both can be fitted tightly.

On types with no ribs, either the inner or the outer ring can move freely in the axial direction, making cylindrical roller bearings ideal for use in free side bearings that absorb shaft expansion.

On types with ribs, the bearing can bear a slight axial load between the roller end surfaces and the ribs. Cylindrical roller bearings include the HT type that modifies the shape of roller end surfaces and ribs to increase axial load capacity, and the E type that has a special internal design to increase radial load capacity. The E type is standard for small-diameter sizes.

Needle roller bearings

These bearings use small needle rollers, 6mm or less in diameter with a width 3 to 10 times diameter, as rolling elements. As such, they feature low cross-section height, high load capacity relative to dimensions, and high rigidity due to the number of elements, and are suited to wobbling or pivoting motion.
