Rolling Bearings

Rolling bearings guide and support oscillating or rotating machine elements – such as wheels, axles or shafts – and transfer loads between machine components.
They provide low friction and high precision and therefore enable high rotational speeds while reducing noise, heat, energy consumption and wear.

Rolling bearings are cost-effective and exchangeable machine elements that typically follow national or international dimension standards.

Deep Groove Ball Bearings

Particularly versatile bearings. Suitable for high or very high speeds, accommodating both radial and axial loads in both directions. Robust, low maintenan

Cylindrical Roller Bearings

Available in many designs, customizable to meet requirements of applications with high loads or high speeds. Separable for easier maintenance inspections

Adapter Sleeves

Adapter sleeves are the most commonly used components for locating bearings with a tapered bore onto a cylindrical seat as they can be used on plain shafts

Backing Bearings

Bearings with thick-walled outer rings, specially developed for cold rolling mills of the cluster type, or applications like bending or straightening mach

Cam Rollers

Yoke-type track rollers based on ball bearings. Greased, sealed and ready-to-mount, designed to run on all types of tracks. Available in a single or doubl

Insert Bearings (Y-bearings)

Easy-to-mount bearings with a convex outer ring. Able to accommodate static misalignment and provide long service life in a wide variety of applications wi

Angular Contact Ball Bearings

Bearings with good running properties and high axial load carrying capacity, designed to accommodate simultaneously acting radial and axial loads

Self-aligning Ball Bearings

Insensitive to static and dynamic misalignment. These two-row ball bearings generate very little frictional heat even at high speeds – leading to minima

Thrust Ball Bearings

Designed to accommodate axial loads in single or double directions. Separable and interchangeable components simplify mounting and dismounting and mainten

Angular Contact Thrust Ball Bearings

Separable bearings, beneficial in applications where safe radial and axial support is required, together with extremely precise axial guidance of the shaf

Thin Section Bearings

Thin section bearings are designed to save weight, use less space, reduce friction, increase design flexibility and provide high running accuracy

Needle Roller Bearings

Bearings that have many rollers with small diameters relative to their length, offering a compact solution with high stiffness and load carrying capacity

Tapered Roller Bearings

Bearings with tapered inner and outer ring raceways as well as tapered rollers. Designed to take on heavy combined loads. Available in many designs, serie

Spherical Roller Bearings

Robust bearings that can accommodate very heavy radial and heavy axial loads in applications prone to misalignment or shaft deflections. Available in both

Cooper Split Roller Bearings

Available in many catalogue or custom designs, especially beneficial for difficult-to-access positions where maintenance or replacement of non-split beari

CARB Toroidal Roller Bearings

Non-locating, self-aligning bearings with high load carrying capacity and axial displacement ability. Made to the SKF Explorer specifications

Cylindrical Roller Thrust Bearings

Suitable for arrangements that need to support heavy axial load and no radial load. Very stiff and require little axial space. Components can be mounted

Needle Roller Thrust Bearings

Provide a high degree of stiffness within a minimum axial space. A form-stable cage reliably retains and guides a large number of needle rollers

Tapered Roller Thrust Bearings

Bearings designed to accommodate heavy axial loads and peak loads and to provide optimal load distribution. Very stiff and require little axial space

Spherical Roller Thrust Bearings

Self-aligning bearings with specially designed raceways and asymmetrical rollers, capable of accommodating axial loads acting in one direction and simulta

Withdrawal Sleeves

Slit tapered sleeves that provide easy mounting and dismounting of bearings with a tapered bore onto the cylindrical seat of stepped shafts

Lock Nuts

Locate bearings onto a shaft, mount or dismount bearings on sleeves, and secure gears, belt pulleys and other machine components. Available in many design

Sensor Bearing Units

Ready-to-mount, compact, and robust units for monitoring the status of rotating or linear components in industrial and automotive applications

Hybrid Bearings

Electrically insulating bearings with bearing steel rings and ceramic rolling elements. Offer high wear-resistance, speed capability and stiffness

Insocoat Bearings

Bearings with a unique coating that prevents electric current passing through the bearing – providing a cost-effective protection against electrical ero

High Temperature Bearings and Bearing Units

Available in several variants and designs, providing excellent performance under hot or dry conditions and at low operational speeds. Long service life an

NoWear Coated Bearings

Bearings with a low friction, wear-resistant carbon coating on the contact surfaces that increases reliability and uptime in severe conditions

Bearings with Solid Oil

Lubricated-for-life bearings designed for use in applications in high levels of moisture or incidental contact with water and other contaminants

Indexing Roller Units

Ready-to-mount units developed for continuous furnaces of sintering and pelletizing plants. Also suitable for heavy load applications and low rotational s
