Axial deep groove ball bearings
These bearings have axially asymmetric races. Axial deep grove ball bearings are ideally suited for special applications, or unique, customized specifications.
As axial bearings, they are used exclusively for axial loads. They are not suitable for radial loads or for use in applications where there may be misalignment. Of the groove ball bearings, these are specialized bearings that depend on having flush and rectangular seats.
The single-sided acting GRW axial deep groove ball bearings consist of
- A plane shaft washer with a race
- A flat housing washer with a race and
- The set of balls itself together with a sheet steel cage.
Due to their design, axial deep groove ball bearings are not self-locking. This provides the advantage of separately installing and removing the shaft and housing washers.
GRW can offer axial deep groove ball bearings in chromium steel or in stainless martensitic roller bearing steel.
