As a SKF bearing distributor, Nodes bearing supplies SKF needle roller and cage assemblies in single row and double row designs.
Single row: K..TN, K series
Double row: K..ZWTN, K..ZW
SKF needle roller and cage assemblies are self-contained, ready-to-mount bearings. In applications where the shaft and housing bore can serve as raceways, the assemblies can be used to create bearing arrangements that require minimal radial space. These bearings are characterized by: a simple and rugged design; accurate guidance of the rollers in the cage pockets; good running performance.
SKF needle roller and cage assemblies features
Lowest cross section among rolling bearings
In applications where less space is available, needle roller and cage assemblies offer a very compact solution.
High load carrying capacity
Due to their large number of rollers, needle roller and cage assemblies have a high load carrying capacity.
Due to their large number of small-diameter rollers, needle roller and cage assemblies have high stiffness.
SKF needle roller and cage assemblies contain rollers of one gauge of grade G2 (ISO 3096:1996 Grade 2). The tolerance of each gauge is 2 um. The deviation from the nominal dimensions of the needle rollers is printed on the package.
The radial operaional clearance of bearing arrangements incorporating needle roller and cage assemblies is determined by:
- the gauge of the needle rollers
- the shaft and housing raceway tolerances
- the operating temperature
Suitable raceway tolerance classes are listed in table belw.
