Bearings • Thrust Bearings
Thrust bearings are rotary bearings that allow rotation between parts and support a high axial load at moderate speeds. Design varieties include ball thrust bearings, tapered roller bearings, fluid bearings and magnetic bearings. Due to their inability to support radial loads, thrust bearings must be paired with radial bearings for radial load support. They are offered as flat race thrust bearings, one directional, grooved race thrust bearings and two directional, grooved race thrust bearings.

The Timken Company offers ball thrust, spherical roller thrust, cylindrical roller thrust, tapered thrust and needle thrust bearings. The Timken line includes TVB ball thrust bearings for standard axial loads, TVL ball thrust bearings for some radial loading, and DTVL ball thrust bearings for only thrust loads. Spherical roller thrust bearings bring about high thrust capacity with low friction and continuous roller alignment for heavy loads. Size ranges from 110 to 850mm. The Timken line of cylindrical roller thrust bearings includes TP bearings characterized by simplicity and TPS bearings with an aligning washer. Their line of tapered roller thrust bearings includes heavy duty bearings for high speed operations, V-Flat bearings in a standard (TTVF) design and a self aligning (TTVS) design
Torque Transmission designs thrust bearings with a lightweight and self-lubricating nylon retainer, hardened grade steel balls and washer. Retainers are injection molded, balls are grade 100 tolerance, and washers have a micro 100 hardened finish. The unique design reduces friction, reduces noise, resists corrosion and increases durability. Sizes range from 2.5 to 8inches in outer diameter.
ART Technologies, Inc. manufactures tapered roller and ball thrust bearings.
