FAQS

QWhat are the types of thrust bearing?

ASome of the different types of thrust bearing include ball, roller, fluid and magnetic. In automotive applications, ball and roller thrust bearings are typically used in wheel hubs, while manual transmissions can utilize what is commonly known as a throw-out bearing as part of the clutch mechanism.

QWhat is a single direction thrust bearing?

ASingle Direction Thrust Ball Bearing. KML Bearing USA’s Single Direction Thrust Ball Bearings are designed for axial loads in one direction only at primarily a 90° contact angle. Commonly, used to reduce noise and provide smooth motion for vertical shafts in automotive, marine and aerospace applications.

QHow does a tapered roller bearing work?

ATapered roller bearings support radial loads as the wheel turns, but also lateral loads, in one direction only, via the tapered construction. Lateral loads are encountered primarily as the vehicle moves around a curve, and the traction of the tires resists the centrifugal force on the moving car.

QWhat are roller bearings?

AA roller bearing is a cylindrical or spherical object that aids in the movement of items, typically those that are heavy or large.

QWhy are ball bearings are used within wheels?

AThe wheels are ball shaped rather than cylindrical, so they can move in all directions and because they are enclosed in the wheel/axle housing so they can just fall out. These ball bearings allow the wheel to turn on the axle without the wheel and axle rubbing excessively.
