Angular Contact Ball BearingsDue to their internal design, angular contact ball bearings can withstand high radial-axial loads and reach high speeds. They are asymmetrical for manufacturing reasons and can withstand unidirectional axial loads only. Angular bearings are usually mounted in a group of two or more opposed preloaded units with rigid or elastic spacers. Typically, the inner and outer raceways and balls are made of chrome steel. Where operating conditions are severe, bearings may have ceramic balls creating a hybrid bearing.
Single Versus Double Row Angular Contact Ball BearingsAs previously mentioned, angular contact bearings are usually mounted in a group of two or more opposed preloaded units with rigid or elastic spacers. This can bee done by matching up multiple single row bearings or by utilizing double row angular contact bearings which may offer some econmic benefits. However, utilizing multiple single sow angular contact ball bearings can offer greater design flexibility and performance in many cases. For information about the more than 100 different double row angular contact bearings available from NTA please visit our web page entitled, "Double Row Angular Contact Ball Bearings."
