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.

KML are worldwide bearing suppliers specializing in their own KML brand. The general types of roller bearings they offer include cylindrical, spherical, needle, tapered, cylindrical thrust, and spherical thrust. The spherical thrust design can handle heavy axial loads at relatively high speeds, and come with either a steel or brass cage. Their cylindrical type comes in single row, double row or multi-row configurations with a cage. They have high radial load carrying capacity at high speeds. KLM spherical roller bearings have two rows of spherical rollers, have good self aligning ability. This type has heavy load carrying capacity. Their needle roller bearings come in sealed, radial needle and cage assemblies, heavy duty needle rollers, thrust needle rollers, and self aligning configurations. KML tapered designs come in either a single, double and four row type in both metric and inch sizes.
