Single row deep groove ball bearings

Single row deep groove ball bearings (fig 1) are particularly versatile. They are simple in design, non-separable, suitable for high and even very high speeds and are robust in operation, requiring little maintenance. Deep raceway grooves and the close conformity between the raceway grooves and the balls enable deep groove ball bearings to accommodate axial loads in both directions, in addition to radial loads, even at high speeds.
Single row deep groove ball bearings are the most widely used bearing type. Consequently, they are available from SKF in many executions and sizes:
  • open basic design bearings (fig 2)
  • sealed bearings (fig 3)
  • ICOS® oil sealed bearing units (fig 4)
  • bearings with snap ring groove, with or without snap ring (fig 5)
Other deep groove ball bearings for special applications, shown in the Engineering products and Mechatronics sections, include:
  • hybrid bearings (fig 6)
  • insulated bearings (fig 7)
  • high temperature bearings (fig 8)
  • bearings with Solid Oil (fig 9)
  • sensorized bearings (fig 10)
  • polymer ball bearings (fig 11)
The SKF product range also includes bearings with a tapered bore. This variant is not included in this catalogue. Information will be provided on request.
