Needle roller thrust bearings

Needle roller thrust bearings and washers

SKF needle roller thrust bearings are fitted with a form-stable cage to reliably retain and guide a large number of needle rollers. Needle roller thrust bearings provide a high degree of stiffness within a minimum axial space. In applications where the faces of adjacent machine components can serve as raceways, needle roller thrust bearings take up no more space than a conventional thrust washer.

Bearing features

  • Accommodate heavy axial loads and peak loads
    The very small diameter deviation of the rollers within one assembly enables these bearings to accommodate heavy axial loads and peak loads.
  • Extended bearing service life
    To prevent stress peaks, the roller ends are relieved slightly to modify the line contact between the raceway and rollers.
