NSK N series metric thin section bearings

NB7 Type

An NSK original, the NB7 type is the thinnest deep groove ball bearing. The minimal space required for the bearing facilitates downsizing of equipment.

68 and 69 Types

These are NSK thin deep groove ball bearings available in open and sealed types. NSK bearings with a snap ring are also available. The 68 and 69 types are low maintenance and they facilitate the simple design of bearing surroundings.


Low frictional and irregular torque ensure highly efficient power transmission and smooth rotating performance.

The high accuracy of the bearings enables excellent high-speed performance.

Features of shielded and sealed bearings

The table below compares the features of shielded, non-contact sealed and contact sealed bearings.
