Basic design bearings

Depending on their series and size, standard CARB toroidal roller bearings are manufactured to one of the following basic designs:
  • bearings with a roller centred cage (no designation suffix, designation suffix TN9 or designation suffix M) (fig. 1)
  • bearings with an inner ring centred cage (designation suffix MB) (fig. 2)
  • full complement bearings (designation suffix V) (fig. 3)
The load carrying capacity of full complement CARB bearings is considerably higher than that of same-sized bearings with a cage.
