Types of Bearings
There are several types of rolling-element bearings. These bearings make contact by some small rolling element such as a ball or cylinder. Below are common rolling-element brearings and their cross-section designation.
|Radial Ball Bearing||Angular Ball Bearing||Spherical Ball Bearing||Needle Bearing||Thrust Bearing|
One type of sliding bearing is a pillow block bearing. These bearings allow for misalignment of shafts, but have smaller load ratings than ball bearings.
