FAG single row deep groove ball bearings are the most frequently used type of rolling bearing. They are produced in numerous sizes and designs and are particularly economical.
1, O arrangement, DB
2, X arrangement, DF
3, Tandem arrangement, DT
By agreement, FAG deep groove ball bearings of series 160, 60, 62, 63, 64 and 618 are available in various arrangements as matched pairs of bearings.
Sets in an O arrangement (suffix DB) can support axial loads in both directions as well as tilting moments.
Sets in an X arrangement (suffix DF) can support axial loads in both directions but are not suitable for tilting moments.
For high axial loads from one direction, pairs of bearings in a tandem arrangement are suitable (suffix DT).
