Angular contact ball bearings

  1. Angular contact bearing have inner and outer ring raceways that are displaced relative to each other in the direction of the bearing axis.

  2. This means that these bearings are designed to accommodate combined loads, i.e. simultaneously acting radial and axial loads.

  3. The axial load carrying capacity of angular contact ball bearings increases as the contact angle increases.

  4. The contact angle 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 combined load is transmitted from one raceway to another, angular contact bearing and a line perpendicular to the bearing axis.

Products of angular contact bearing

Product types, designs and variants

Single row angular contact ball bearing

Incorporating a large number of balls to give it a relatively high load carrying capacity, these bearings Angular contact bearing can accommodate axial loads in one direction only, are typically adjusted against a second bearing and have non-separable rings.
Double row angular contact ball bearings

Double row angular contact ball bearing

With a design corresponding to two single row bearings arranged back-to-back, but where two single bearings take up too much axial space, they can accommodate radial and axial loads in either direction and tilting moments.

Four-point contact ball bearing

Designed to support axial loads in both directions and have a high load carrying capacity, these bearings can support a limited radial load for a given axial load, use less axial space than double row bearings and are separable.

Features and Benefits

  1. Support radial and axial loads
  2. Single-row DGBBs sustain radial loads and axial loads in both directions.
  3. Proven performance
    DGBBs are the most popular type of bearing and have been used in countless applications.
  4. Low friction and operating temperature, low noise and vibration
  5. Angular contact bearing Withstands radial and axial loads in both directions
  6. A wide range of greases for most conditions, including food grade greases, high temperature greases and solid oils

Loads are defined by their direction. Loads perpendicular to the shaft are called radial loads and loads parallel to the shaft are called axial (thrust) loads.

DGBB can carry axial loads in both directions, whereas angular contact ball bearings can only carry axial loads in one direction.

Seals and shields provide additional protection for the bearing components and help to improve and maintain lubrication. In terms of sealing performance, sealed bearings rank best, followed by shielded bearings and finally open bearings.

Deep groove ball bearings are available in a large number of sizes with different seals, shields, cages, and greases.

Successful mounting is critical to the life cycle of your bearing. Proper bearing dismounting can safeguard other machine components and maintenance workers.

The bearing is at the heart of all rotating equipment, and the condition of the bearing often reflects how well a machine is running. Learn more about bearing damage and bearing failure – and how to prevent it.
