Single-Row Deep Groove Ball Bearings
Pressed Steel Cages
- Single-row deep groove ball bearings are the most common type of rolling bearings.
Their use is very widespread. In addition to open type bearings, these bearings often have steel shields or rubber seals installed on one or both sides and are prelubricated with grease. Also, snap rings are sometimes used on the periphery. As to cages, pressed steel ones are the most common. For big deep groove ball bearings, machined brass cages are used. Machined cages are also used for high speed applications.
Extra Small Ball Bearings and Miniature Ball Bearings:
- Miniature and instrument ball bearings can be divided into two basic types, deep groove and angular contact. The first (deep groove) can be further divided into the following five
Classes depending on their design details:
- Standard type
- Flanged outer ring
- Extended inner ring
- Expanded type in which one ring has a radial thickness that is larger than normal compared with the bearing width.
- Thin section type in which both rings are extra thin in the radial direction. They can also be classified as: open, shielded, or sealed.
