SKF offers a large selection of high-precision angular contact ball bearings – not only with regard to the number of types and designs, but also the number of sizes. It covers shaft diameters from 8 to 320 mm which includes virtually every machine-tool application and other precision bearing arrangement where high-precision angular contact ball bearings can be used.
Single row SKF high-precision angular contact ball bearings (fig) are non-separable and – like all angular contact ball bearings - have raceways in the inner and outer rings that are displaced with respect to each other in the direction of the bearing axis. This means that, in addition to radial loads, these bearings can also accommodate axial loads in one direction. Radial loads produce axial forces in these bearings that need to be balanced by counterforces. Angular contact ball bearings are therefore always adjusted against a second bearing or used in sets.
SKF high-precision angular contact ball bearings can comply with a variety of operating requirements with regard to:
– load carrying capability
– running accuracy
– speed capability
– vibration behaviour
– available space
They are therefore available in three bearing series and these in turn are available in many designs with different characteristics.
