Bearings with a snap ring groove

Single row deep groove ball bearings with a snap ring groove can simplify the design of an arrangement because the bearings can be located axially in the housing by a snap ring (fig. 1). This saves space and can significantly reduce mounting time. Appropriate snap rings are shown in the product table with their designation and dimensions. They can be supplied separately or fitted to the bearing.
The following variants are available for basic design deep groove ball bearings:
  • open bearings with a snap ring groove only, designation suffix N (fig. 2)
  • open bearings with a snap ring, designation suffix NR (fig. 3)
  • bearings with a snap ring and a shield on the opposite side, designation suffix ZNR (fig. 4)
  • bearings with a snap ring and a shield on both sides, designation suffix 2ZNR (fig. 5)
