Deep groove ball bearings
- Deep groove ball bearings are the most widely used bearing type and are particularly versatile. They have low friction and are optimized for low noise and low vibration which enables high rotational speeds.
- They accommodate radial and axial loads in both directions, are easy to mount, and require less maintenance than other bearing types.
- The bearings catalogue lists a large range of designs, variants and sizes of deep groove ball bearings.
- Beyond our catalogue offering, the Explorer deep groove ball bearings are customizable to offer advantages for applications with specific performance needs.

Features and Benefits
- Support radial and axial loads
- Single-row DGBBs sustain radial loads and axial loads in both directions.
- Proven performance
DGBBs are the most popular type of bearing and have been used in countless applications.
- Low friction and operating temperature, low noise and vibration
- Withstands radial and axial loads in both directions
- A wide range of greases for most conditions, including food grade greases, high temperature greases and solid oils
- Improves reliability and provides long bearing and lubricant life
- The bearings are the most widely used bearing type and are suitable for many different industries.
- Matching the versatility of many different applications, they are available in a wide range of designs, variants and sizes.
- The following are examples of applications where deep groove ball bearings may be used.
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.
