Thrust Ball Bearings
Thrust ball bearings can sustain axial loads but not radial loads. For Single-Direction Thrust Ball Bearings, pressed steel cages and machined brass cages are usually used. The cages in Double- Direction Thrust Ball Bearings are the same as those in Single-Direction Thrust Ball Bearings of the same diameter series.
- Available in single direction and double direction designs
- Suitable for relatively high axial loads
- Low to medium speed ratings
- Highly rigid
- Standard: DIN 616, DIN 711, DIN 715
- Series: - 51100, 51200, 51300, 51400
Single Direction Thrust Ball Bearings
Single direction thrust ball bearings consist of a shaft washer, a housing washer and a ball and cage thrust assembly. The bearings are separable so that mounting is simple as the washers and the ball and cage assembly can be mounted separately.
Single direction thrust ball bearings, as their name suggests, can accommodate axial loads in one direction and thus locate a shaft axially in one direction. They must not be subjected to any radial load.
Double Direction Thrust Ball Bearings
Double direction thrust ball bearings consist of one shaft washer, two housing washers and two ball and cage thrust assemblies. The bearings are separable so that mounting is simple. The various parts can be mounted separately. The housing washers and ball and cage thrust assemblies are identical to those of the single direction bearings.
Double direction thrust ball bearings can accommodate axial loads acting in both directions and can thus serve to axially locate a shaft in both directions. They must not be subjected to radial load.
