Angular Contact Ball Bearings

Angular contact ball bearings are used in applications where radial and axial loads are present, such as gearboxes, pumps, and machine tools. These specialized bearings are characterized by high precision and high operating speeds.

Types of Ball Bearings

There are three types of ball bearings: angular contact, axial and deep groove.
No matter what type of ball bearing, its purpose is to reduce rotational friction, and it can bear axial force and radial (or thrust) force at the same time.
For reference, the bearing moves around a fixed axis. Depending on the application, bearings may be subjected to axial forces (forces applied parallel to the axis) or radial forces (forces applied perpendicular to the axis), or both.
Since not all bearings can withstand both forces, ball bearings are versatile and are one of the most commonly used types of rolling bearings.

How These Bearings Work

As the contact angle increases, the axial load-carrying capacity of angular contact ball bearings increases. This angle can be defined as the angle between the radial position raceway and the connecting line between the contact points of the balls. Loads will be transferred between the raceways along this radial plane, plus a line perpendicular to the bearing axis. They are used in various industrial, engineering, and manufacturing applications, especially where original structures are required.

What is the Difference Between Single Row and Double Row Angular Contact Ball Bearings?

Single-row angular contact ball bearings are usually selected for applications with high speed and thrust load capacity. They are usually arranged in a face-to-face or back-to-back configuration.

Double-row angular contact ball bearings also provide unidirectional thrust capability, but they are paired with additional angular contact ball bearings to provide dual shaft support. They are a common choice for pump applications.

The proper bearing type for an application depends on the load capacity, load direction, and lubrication and sealing requirements. There are single-point, double-point, and four-point bearings with different sizes and lubrication options.

Characteristics of Angular Contact Bearings

Angular contact bearings are ideal for transmissions, pumps, electric motors and clutches or other high speed applications.
They are commonly used in the material handling, machine tool, steel mill and wind energy industries.
Although angular contact bearings can only accommodate thrust loads in one direction, they can be manufactured with varying contact angles (typically between 0 and 45 degrees) to transfer loads acting on the bearing.
