Summary: Choosing the right ball bearing can be a pain, especially when you’re new to the world of mechanics. Ball bearings are used in nearly every product that has a moving part from your lazy Susan to your hard drive. Ball bearings are used to reduce rotational friction and handle stress to allow for a smoother operation throughout the product’s components. Online Bearings sell a range of bearings that can be used for many applications!

Ball and Roller Bearings

Ball Bearings are perhaps the most common type of bearing due to the fact they can carry both radical and thrust loads. However, they do require upkeep as if too much stress is placed on the bearing they can deform. On the other hand, a roller bearing is designed to carry a heavy load and larger weight as overall, the surface area is bigger. Unlike a ball bearing, the structure of a roller bearing is not suited for thrust loads.

Ball and Roller Thrust Bearings

Naturally, engineers have developed bearings that are specific to thrust handling, so ball thrust bearings are perfect for low-speed low-weight applications (such as bar stools). Similarly, roller thrust bearings can hold more weight and are commonly found in car transmissions and gear support. Tapered roller bearings are also usually a part of a car’s mechanics, specifically in the car hubs to help support the heavy radical and thrust loads that are placed onto a car’s wheels.
