Needle Roller Bearings Supplier, UK
Needle roller bearings consist of cylindrical rollers as opposed to spherical rollers and length of each cylinder should be a minimum of four times the diameter. A large amount of the surface area of a needle bearing makes contact with the exterior surface of a bearing which is different to that of a ball bearing. Unlike ball bearings, needle bearings are smaller in size as they require a reduced added clearing. A needle bearing is made up of a needle cage and this works by holding and positioning the cylinders along with the rollers and the outer race.
When it comes to needle bearings, there are two types and these are known as radial needle bearings which are a cylindrical shape and thrust bearings which are flat and include a radial pattern of bearings. Full complement bearings include rib-guided cylindrical rollers as well as inner rings and outer rings. This makes it possible for them to carry a heavy radial load while they are ideal for use in small designs. These are often found within vehicle parts such as compressors, pump and drive shafts.
