Bearing Type Chart | Different Bearing Types

Ball bearings are widely used in various applications when high speed revolution, low-friction torque, low vibration and low noise are required.

Needle bearings are characterized by its lightweight and high load capacity. It is made with relatively heavy but thin outer ring, made from hardened and precision ground materials,thus provides the smallest section height. 

Bushing is characterized by its small coefficient of friction, hard-wearing, good corrosion resistance and oil-free lubrication. It provides better self-lubrication, hard wearingness and low friction. There are many advantages using bushings, such as reduced cost smaller in size, low noise and also the so-called “axis-biting” can be avoided.

Automotive bearings contain a wide range of types, generally common includes wheel bearings, tensioner bearings, pulley bearings, clutch bearings, and pump bearings. Its size and part number are different based on different car model.

Ceramic bearings is characterized by its light weight and small density. It can suppress the increase in load and the slippage due to centrifugal force when the ceramic bearing rotates at high speed. Ceramic materials have low dislocations, low mobility and very high hardness which reduces wear and gives ceramic bearings excellent wear resistance.

A Spherical plain bearing (Rod end) is characterized by its good hard-wearingness and being able to withstand high load self-aligning sliding bearing. It is particularly suitable for working conditions where an alternating and impact load is involved. Being able to withstand big radial load and axial load from direction, it is suitable for both production and construction machinery.

The rolling elements of this bearing are Tapered Rollers. They form a line contact with raceway of inner ring and outer ring. These are separable bearings. They are available in both metric, inch, and non-standard dimensions.
