What is a Ball Bearing?
A Ball Bearing is a mechanical component used between two parts that allows rotational or liner movement, reducing friction and enhancing performance to save energy.
What are some types of Ball Bearing ?
There are many different types of Ball Bearings, each used for specific purposes and designed to carry specific types of loads, radial or thrust. Here are a few of our Ball Bearings:
625-2RS Axial Ball Bearing is widely used in a variety of applications. They are suitable for not only radial loads, but may also moderate axial loads in both directions. These are designed with a simple, strong assembly and are on the market in a wide range of specifications and sizes. The rubber seal prevents the ingress of foreign substances such as dust and water.
625-ZZ Ball Bearing is suitable for use in applications which involve combined radial and axial loads, and a need for high running accuracy at high rotational speeds. Such applications include clutches, drives, gearboxes, compressors, pumps, turbines, and printing and textile machines, among others. Lubricating these Ball Bearings every few months will ensure the longevity of the life of the bearings.
F688-ZZ Ball Bearing is designed to be used with our 8mm ACME Lead Screws and Threaded Rod Plate. They are great for 8mm shaft/rod projects such as mechanical equipment, electrical instruments, toys, doors and windows.
MR105ZZ Ball Bearings are great with all RC cars, heli, and planes such as TAMIYA / KYOSHO / TRAXXAS / HPI / ALIGN / TEAM LOSI. Other electronic appliances include CNC Machines and 3D Printers.
F8-16M 8 x 16 x 5mm Thrust Bearings are suitable for several RC vehicles and designed to allow movement between parts while maintaining a large axial load, and easily lubricated.
Why are Ball Bearings used in machines?
Bearings are constrained elements used to reduce the friction of certain moving parts in a machine or device. This is done by replacing sliding friction with rolling friction. Roller bearings are used for heavier loads than ball bearings.
How do Ball Bearings help reduce friction?
Ball Bearings help to reduce friction with its entrapped balls which helps to slide on different surfaces or in any other place smoothly. Bearings reduce the friction of certain moving parts by replacing sliding friction with rolling friction.
