QWhat is thrust ball bearings ?

AA ball thrust bearing is a particular type of rotary ball bearing. Like other ball bearings, they permit rotation between parts, but they are designed to support a high axial load while doing this (parallel to the shaft).

QWhat are plain bearings used for?

APlain bearings are used primarily in machinery that has a rotating or a sliding shaft component. Also called a journal bearing, sleeve bearings, or sliding bearings, plain bearings have no rolling elements. Some are made of relatively soft metal, such as Babbit, to protect the shaft journals.

QDo Needle Bearings need grease?

ANeedle bearings are usually lubricated with grease, but oil or oil-mist lubrication is preferred for heavy-duty or high-speed applications. Many light-duty bearings never require relubrication, but high loads or speeds demand it.

QWhat is angular contact ball bearings ?

AAngular contact ball bearings have inner and outer ring raceways that are displaced relative to each other in the direction of the bearing axis. This means that these bearings are designed to accommodate combined loads, i.e. simultaneously acting radial and axial loads.
