What Are Angular Thrust Ball Bearings?

September 10, 2015

A ball bearing is comprised of a number of friction-reducing hard balls that run in grooves in two concentric ring surfaces, which is mounted on a rotating shaft. Its primary purpose is to reduce the effect of the rotational friction generated by the rubbing action, so heat produced by the high-speed contact is lessened. Ball […]

Importance of Ball Bearings in Automotive Parts

August 20, 2015

Cars and trucks are the most common moving machine on the globe. They’re found everywhere, which makes them the ideal candidates to use as a case study for ball bearings. On top of the notion that automobiles are ubiquitous, they’re arguably the first mass of working parts you think of when envisaging something that depends […]

Basic Information On How Ball Bearings Work

August 14, 2015

Friction is incurred when two separate parts make contact and slide against each other. The job of a ball bearing is to neutralize the friction generated by this rubbing action and therefore remove the heat produced by high-speed contact. In olden times, when a vendor was taking produce to market, he’d rub a little meat […]

Stainless Steel Bearings and Their Various Applications

July 30, 2015

It is one thing to describe the parts of a ball bearing and define how these components lock together, but it’s another altogether to open the door to the multitude of applications where these revolutionary friction-killers are found. It’s not that these are rare bearings. In fact, the issue is just the opposite. The trapped […]

What Are Ball Bearings?

July 13, 2015

There are a handful of mechanical devices within our technically advanced civilization that have justifiably earned a place of prominence. The ball bearing is one such component, one that we boldly declare as a key reason the industrial evolution took place. Without ball bearings, where would locomotives and the prime movers that drive steel mills […]
