Backed by a team of experts, we are engrossed in supplying Thrust Bearing that is an extremely resilient and rugged machine component. It is typically used in order to make the movement of the machine parts smooth and friction-less. The bearing consists of rollers that help position the moving components of a machine. Thrust Bearing can endure impacts, heat, and shock, therefore, it is sure to last for an extended period of time.
A thrust bearing, a type of rotary bearing, rotates between parts reducing friction and is designed to support an axial load (mostly in low-speed applications). It is the axial bearing that permits rotation between parts.
Thrust bearings include a variety of bearings that assists axial loads or axial force. It is an axial bearing that permits rotation between parts. Thrust bearings support the axial thrust of both horizontal and vertical shafts.
The functions are to prevent the shaft from drifting in the axial direction and to transfer thrust loads applied on the shaft.
Thrust bearings are generally seated against a raised thrust collar around the shaft. The thrust collar allows the axial load to be transferred from the shaft to the bearing. Thrust bearings are typically used in pairs on each side of the thrust collar.
Benefits to Thrust Bearings
Single-direction thrust ball bearings
These bearings have balls enclosed in a cage between the shaft raceway washer that corresponds to the inner ring, and the housing raceway washer that corresponds to the outer ring. They can bear only single-direction axial loads.
Double-direction thrust angular contact thrust ball bearings
These can support axial loads in both directions, with high rigidity in the axial direction due to a large contact angle. Their structure is not suited to grease-lubricated vertical shafts.
Cylindrical roller thrust bearings
Needle roller thrust bearings
These include bearings using machined parts and bearings using pressed steel plate parts for the raceway washer, with the latter type having the smallest cross-sectional height and high load-bearing capacity.
Tapered roller thrust bearings
These are thrust bearings using tapered rollers. The single-type bearings include those with and without ribs on the housing raceway washers, as well as the full complement roller type. Double-type bearings are mainly used to support axial loads such as those on rolling mill roll necks.
