Bearings Applications

Taylor Hobson measurement systems provide in depth analysis of bearings, ensuring optimised performance and supporting a process of continual development.
Typical applications include:

Roller bearings   • Ball screws   • Ball nuts  • Miniature bearings   • Large bearings   • Ball bearings   
Four point bearings      • Angular contact ball bearings    • Deep groove ball bearings     
Fluid dynamic bearings...
  • Cylindrical Roller Bearings +

    Cylindrical Roller BearingsCylindrical roller bearings have exceptionally low friction torque characteristics that make them suitable for high speed operation read more.

  • Spherical Roller Bearings +

    Spherical Roller BearingsMost spherical bearings have an outer raceway that is a portion of a sphere and as such they are internally self-aligning read more.

  • Taper Roller Bearings +

    Taper Roller BearingsThe taper roller bearing has the ability to carry combinations of large radial and thrust loads or to carry thrust load only read more.

  • Rolling Elements +

    Rolling ElementsContact rolling bearing elements come in a variety of different shapes, including spherical, cylindrical and conical (taper roller) read more.

  • Hard Disc Drive Bearings +

    Hard Disc Drive BearingsThere are fundamentally two types of hard disc drive bearings which are those based on standard contact ball bearings and those based on fluid dynamic bearings read more.

  • Four Point Bearings +

    Four Point BearingsFour point bearings have on their outer and inner rings two circular arc-shaped raceways whose centres of curvature are offset so that during radial loading the balls contact the raceways at four points read more.

  • Roller Bearings +

    Angular Contact Ball BearingsAngular contact ball bearings are designed to support combined radial and thrust loads or heavy thrust loads depending on the contact angle magnitude read more.

  • Deep Groove Ball Bearings +

    Deep Groove Ball BearingsBoth rings posses deep grooves with a radius only slightly exceeding the ball radius. Due to this curvature ratio the bearing can support high radial forces as well as axial forces which make them ideal for a wide range of applications read more.
