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.

Waukesha Bearings™ offers thrust bearings to include fixed profile designs for lightly-loaded applications and advanced tilting pad solutions for more demanding, high-load, high-speed applications. Combination thrust/journal designs are also available for applications with limited axial space. Their tilting pad thrust bearings are specially engineered for reduced power loss, oil flow and pad temperatures for reliable and efficient machine performance. Patented design features allow for optimized performance in a variety of applications and address industry-wide challenges like axial vibration.
