Angular Contact Ball Bearings

Angular Contact Ball Bearings
Angular contact ball bearings are designed to handle radial and axial loads simultaneously. Due to their contact angle and construction, they offer higher axial load-carrying than standard deep groove ball bearings. It features a contact angle between the balls and the raceways, allowing it to distribute the loads more evenly and efficiently.

Features and benefits:
  • Suitable for high-speed applications
  • Higher load-carrying capacity due to the contact angle
  • The contact angle between the bearing balls and rings is normally 15°, 30°, or 40° degrees
  • The larger contact angle bearings have greater thrust load capacity

Q: Can angular contact ball bearings handle thrust loads?

Yes, angular contact ball bearings are designed to handle axial, thrust, and radial loads. Their contact angle enables them to distribute the thrust load efficiently and prevent excessive axial deflection.

Q: What are the different contact angle options available for angular contact ball bearings?

Angular contact ball bearings are available with contact angles of 15°, 30°, and 40°. Smaller contact angles provide higher axial load capacities, while larger angles are more suitable for higher radial loads.
