Tapered Roller Bearings are made of inner races called cones and outer races called cups. These parts are detachable. They are called tapered roller bearings because the cone assembly is narrower in one end and the races are built with one side narrower as well to match the rollers. Because of this assembly, it is an ideal bearing for axial and radial loads. The steeper the cup angle, the greater is the ability for the bearing to handle thrust loads. These bearings have point contact. They are ideal for environments where high speed and heavy loads occur, and low friction is needed.
