Alignment Needle Roller Bearings



SKF alignment needle roller bearings have an outer ring with a sphere (convex) outside surface two polymer seating rings with a sphere (concave) inside surface are encased in a drawn sheet steel sleeve and fitted over the outer ring SKF supplies alignment needle roller bearings with or without an inner ring.

Bearings with an inner ring

  • Should be used in applications where the shaft cannot be hardened and ground
  • Have limited permissible axial displacement of the shaft relative to the housing, which can be extended, if needed, by using a wide inner ring

Bearings without an inner ring

  • Are an excellent choice for compact bearing arrangements, if the shaft can be hardened and ground.
