Bearings Direct supplies a large variety of roller bearings and needle roller bearings. Roller bearings are any cylindrical or spherical object that aids in the movement of an object greater in size than the bearing itself. A roller bearing is a weight distribution-oriented bearing. This means it utilizes many points of contact between a circular housing that contains internal rolling elements, such as ball bearings, that sit within a collar. These bearing systems use the decrease in rolling resistance as a means of increasing the efficiency of moving an object.
We are a large roller bearings supplier with a selection of various sizes and shapes. Most commonly, roller bearings fall into three categories: cylindrical, tapered, and needle. View our selection below!
We offer an inventory of shell type & shell cup needle roller bearings - metric. Metric shell type needle roller bearings have high length-to-diameter ratios. They are commonly used in farm and construction equipment, gasoline engines, gas pumps, and small appliances.
Needle bearings have smaller rollers and the highest load capacity for a given radial space of all rolling bearings. View our inventory of metric shell type needle roller bearings below.
Bearings Direct supplies inch shell cup needle roller and drawn cup needle roller bearings. These bearings are unique in that they have a high length-to-diameter ratio. Commonly used in applications like farm and construction equipment, gas engines, gear pumps, and small appliances, they may be lubricated with grease. However, oil-based lubricants are considered better for longevity and smoothness.
Needle bearings have smaller rollers and have the highest load capacity for a given radial space of all rolling bearings. You can view our inventory of shell type needle roller bearing inch sizes below.
