Bearings • Roller Bearings

Roller bearings is a type of rolling element bearing. They use cylinders that are greater in length than the diameter. Relative to ball bearings, roller bearings have higher radial load capacity. They have low axial load capacity and higher friction. Also in comparison to ball bearings, the bearing capacity of roller bearings can decrease at a faster rate if the inner and outer races are not aligned properly. Common types of roller bearings include cylindrical, spherical, tapered, and needle. They are ideal for heavy-duty and moderate-speed functions. But cylindrical bearings have lower speed capabilities.
