Universal joint bearings

  • SKF universal joint bearings are manufactured with cold forged or machined outer ring needle roller bearings with closed ends for various types of applications.
  • The Universal joint bearings are used in the automotive industry for joints in commercial vehicle drive shafts and also for special applications in other industries.
  • SKF cardan bearings are available in a wide range of sizes and designs, including
  • Designs that require maintenance or are virtually maintenance-free
    Open (no seals) or sealed designs

Products of Universal joint bearings

Features and Benefits

  1. Locating bearing configuration
    Bears combined radial and axial loads in one or both directions
  2. Low cross-section
    Combined needle roller bearings provide a very compact solution in applications where the available space is small.
  3. High load carrying capacity
    Due to the high number of rolling elements, combined needle roller bearings have a high load carrying capacity.


  • Universal joint bearings have more elastic properties than knuckle joints.
  • These joints help in torque transmission between shafts that have an angular misalignment.
  • They are cheaper in cost and are simple to be assembled and dismantled.
  • The universal joint can provide high torque transmission efficiency.
  • These joints allow angular displacement compared to other types.
  • Industrial transmission, automotive, electric motor, generator sets, elevating machinery, machine tool spindles,internal-combustion engines, etc.

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.

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

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

Sure, free samples are available for stock products if you can pay for the shipping cost.

We have regular stock for standard bearings that can be shipped right after your payment. It will take 15-60 days for new production order,which depends on your order quantity.
