Why is the deep groove ball bearing popular?
Apr 25, 2018

Single row deep groove ball bearings are the most widely used roller bearing type in the world due to their versatility and overall performance. They are characterized by having deep raceway grooves in which the inner and outer rings have circular arcs of slightly larger radius than that of the balls. They also have non-separable rings. Their straight forward basic design has many advantanges:

  • Excellent for high speeds

  • Good radial load capacity

  • Acceptable axial load capacity in both directions

  • Have low torque capacity at startup and running speeds

  • Operate with low noise

  • Require little maintenance
