Thin section bearings are designed to save weight, use less space, reduce friction, increase design flexibility and provide high running accuracy.
These bearings can meet highly demanding and specific requirements. They are often used in applications such as aerospace, medical systems, robotics, astronomy instrumentation and machine tools.
Our design efficiency can lead to significant savings in space, weight and cost over standard dimensioned bearings.
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.
