Angular contact ball bearings have outer and inner ring raceways that are displaced relative to each other in the direction of the bearing axis.
This means that these bearings are designed to accommodate combined loads, i.e. simultaneously acting axial and radial loads.
The axial load carrying capacity of angular contact ball bearings increases as the contact angle increases.
The contact angle is defined as the angle between the line joining the points of contact of the ball and the raceways in the radial plane, along which the combined load is transmitted from one raceway to another, and a line perpendicular to the bearing axis.
More robust than typical deep groove ball bearings, they are highly customizable with the possible combination of many different components. This results in up to 10 000 possible configurations! Find the optimum configuration to deliver the kind of high performance you need – whether that’s exceptional durability, for example, or lower friction.
Designed especially for wind turbine generators, SKF Quiet Running deep groove ball bearings significantly reduce noise levels and structural resonance. They are less sensitive to variable operating conditions, can increase bearing service life and extend relubrication intervals.
