Four-point contact ball bearings

Improve steering brake and clutch reliability

Angular contact ball bearings

For mining and mineral processing machinery, increasing reliability and productivity is a constant challenge. The SKF four-point contact ball bearing solution makes it much easier for transmission, steering brake and clutch applications. 


SKF four-point contact ball bearings meet the requirements of high frequency steering brake and clutch use. Their small axial clearance and high stiffness lead to increased reliability and productivity.

Robust materials and design

Angular contact ball bearing
SKF four-point contact ball bearings feature a number of optimized design innovations that enable them to run longer and more reliably, while reducing heat, noise and vibration levels.

SKF four-point contact ball bearings have undergone a unique SKF heat treatment to provide outstanding strength, stiffness and wear-resistance. An improved brass cage is lighter, to reduce inertia forces and provide better ball guidance. Lightweight PEEK plastic cages with the durability and performance of brass cages are also available.

A shoulder recess on the inner ring of the bearing facilitates dismounting, provides additional lubrication improvements, and a redesigned raceway shoulder transition makes the bearings capable of carrying increased thrust loads.
  • Extend bearing service life
  • Handle heavier axial loads
  • Cut lubricant consumption
  • Reduce noise and vibration levels
  • Reduce heat generated by the bearing
