Angular Contact Ball Bearings are used in a variety of applications and equipment yet these bearings are exclusively designed and developed for carrying high radial and axial load capacities for a long time. There are three types of Angular Contact Ball Bearings, single row bearings, double row bearings and four point contact ball bearings. Besides the difference in their design and structure, they also have different applications and properties. Single row bearings are used to deliver high thrust in one direction while the double row bearings come with high thrust capacity in both directions.
DESIGN ATTRIBUTES OF ANGULAR CONTACT BALL BEARINGS
Angular Contact Ball Bearings consist of an inner ring, outer ring, balls and the cage that holds those balls at a specific angle. Because of the specific angle and geometry of both rings and their shoulders, Angular Contact Ball Bearings deliver high axial load capacity. There are many additional design attributes and options available that are applied on demand based on the application and requirement. Some of these options are special lubricants, cage material that can make a huge different in performance and durability of the apparatus and different kind of coatings.
VARIATIONS OF ANGULAR CONTACT BALL BEARINGS
Single row Angular Contact Ball Bearings are known for their performance and high accuracy. This type of bearings can carry a high axial and radial load but because of the design limitations and single row structure, single row Angular Contact Ball Bearings can only operate in one direction. On the other hand, double row Angular Contact Ball Bearings do not have this design limitation ant they can work in both directions. Four point Angular Contact Ball Bearings are made at 35 degree angle that dramatically increases their axial load capacity.
In this type of Angular Contact Ball Bearings, the inner ring is divided in two parts and this type of bearing also come with options like special lubrications, seals and shields to work in extreme environments. The most common material used in Angular Contact Ball Bearings is stainless steel while the cages are made of brass and steel.
Applications of Angular Contact Ball Bearings
As Angular Contact Ball Bearings are made with hundreds of different dimensions and there are two types of these bearings, they are used in a wide range of industries and apparatuses.
Agriculture uses of Angular Contact Ball Bearings
The needs of agriculture industry are heavy machineries and equipments, Angular Contact Ball Bearings are known for their high performance and high axial and radial load capacities that make them the ideal solution for agricultural machines.
Automobile uses of Angular Contact Ball Bearings
Angular Contact Ball Bearings come in single row and double row configurations and both of these different types of bearings offer different level of precision, performance and capacity. These bearings are used in automobile industry because of their durability and capabilities to work in hostile environments.
UTILITIES USES OF ANGULAR CONTACT BALL BEARINGS
Highly precise Angular Contact Ball Bearings are used in general industries and utilities because of their high performance and precision for a long time period.
