SSB Thin Section Bearings

SSB Slim Section Ball Bearings 
There are three types of slim section ball bearings, each of which is designated to provide maximum performance under different load conditions. 
  • Radial Contact Bearings : The C-Type, radial contact ball bearing is designed with deep ball grooves to withstand high loads. Although this bearing is used primarily in applications with radial loads, it can withstand moderate axial loads, reversing axial loads, and moment loads.
  • Angular Contact Bearings : In applications with axial loads the A-Type, angular contact ball bearing should be used. The bearing also works well in radial or combined radial-thrust applications. The A-Type bearing should never be used alone to support moment loads or reversing axial loading. Two A-Type bearings are often used as duplex pair.
  • 4-Point Contact Bearings : The X-Type, or 4-Point contact ball bearings is ideal for moment loading. X-Type bearings are designed with gothic arch raceways which creates 4 contact points between the balls and raceways. The design is excellent for moment loading and reversing axial loading. The X-Type bearing can be used for other light loading conditions, but is not recommended in place of the C - or A -Type bearing for pure radial loads.
