Angular Contact Ball Bearing
Angular Contact Ball Bearings is a ball bearing with raceways in the inner and outer rings that are displaced relative to each other in the direction of the bearing axis. This means that these bearings are designed to withstand combined loads, that is, radial and axial loads acting simultaneously.
Angular contact ball bearings’ axial load carrying capacity increases as the contact angle increases. The contact angle is defined as the angle between the line connecting the ball’s contact point and the raceway in the radial plane (the line perpendicular to the bearing shaft). The combined load is transmitted from one raceway to the other along the radial line.
Angular Contact Ball Bearings Types:
Three main angular contact ball-bearing designs are Single-row Angular Contact Ball Bearings, Double Row Angular Contact Ball Bearings, and Four Point Angular Contact Ball Bearings. Depending on the application, they can be made into different sizes and loads, from miniature ball bearings for light loads and trim components to large Angular Contact Ball Bearings.
