Deep groove ball bearing configurations
TIMKEN deep groove ball bearings are available in a variety of sizes and are the most popular of the rolling bearings. This type of bearing supports radial load and a small degree of axial load in both directions simultaneously. Deep groove ball bearings are popular due to their versatility, affordability, and capability to run at high speeds.
Timken offers deep groove ball bearings in a wide range of sizes and configurations. Offered sizes range from 3 mm to 400 mm bore, and maximum outside diameter (O.D.) of 600 mm. Timken continues to expand the offering of deep groove ball bearings with larger sizes to be introduced. Contact your Timken sales representative for questions and new opportunities.
