Thin section tapered roller and angular contact ball bearings

Cost-saving solutions for heavy duty hub bearings

Inside wheels, hub bearings carry the weight of the vehicle. They enable wheel rotation and, if necessary, torque transmission to the wheel. It's quite a heavy load, in more ways than one. Thin section bearings from SKF can help.


Thin section tapered roller bearing for wheel drive units (such as wheel loaders) and the thin section angular contact ball bearing for crawler drive units (such as excavators) offer high power density. Their high stiffness and high shock load capability reduce the downtime of the machine, which leads to higher productivity.


The thin section tapered roller bearing has a space-saving design that enables compact (design) solutions. Depending on the type of machine, both the thin section tapered roller bearing and thin section angular contact ball bearing facilitate cost-saving solutions.
