Ball bearings maintain the separation between the bearing races, reducing rotational friction and support radial and axial loads. Because the balls are rolling they have a much lower coefficient of friction than if two flat surfaces were sliding against each other.
Cylindrical Roller Bearings are most commonly manufactured in single and double row roller bearings, but are available in other constructive types and sizes.
Spherical Roller Bearings are made to allow angular misalignment between the outer and inner rings, while enduring the most vigorous conditions. The outer ring sphered raceway is self-aligning and can be symmetrical or asymmetrical.
Needle roller bearings use long, thin cylindrical rollers resembling needles. Compared to ball bearings and ordinary roller bearings, needle bearings have a greater surface area in contact with the races, so they can support a greater load. They are also thinner, so they require less clearance between the axle and the surrounding structure.
A pillow block is a pedestal used to provide support for a rotating shaft with the help of compatible bearings & various accessories.
Tapered roller bearings are rolling element bearings that can support axial forces, as well as radial forces. They are engineered for superior accuracy and control.
