Deep Groove Ball Bearings
By far the most popular type of rolling bearing, these are rigid and non-separable radial bearings in which the balls run in deep grooves on both the inner and outer rings. Thus maintaining load capacity in both radial and axial directions.
Single row deep grove ball bearings have a higher speed rating that any other type of ball or roller bearing.
Most sizes now also available as double row deep groove ball bearings. Available open, sealed or shielded.
Taper Roller Bearings
These are separable radial bearings (i.e. the outer ring simply sits on the inner ring and can simply be lifted off).
Taper roller bearings are only able to accept thrust in one direction and thus must be used in pairs where a shaft adjustment is required in both directions.

Angular Contact Ball Bearings
These are rigid and non-separable radial bearings especially suited to high-speed application which require both radial and thrust forces including combined loads and tilting motion.
They can only accept thrust in one direction and thus must be used in pairs where a shaft adjustment is required in both directions.
Available with varying degrees of “contact angle” – the greater the angle the higher the thrust load capacity. Also available in double row angular contact.
Cylindrical Roller Bearings
These are rigid and non-separable (in the majority of cases) radial bearings. The possibility of using a particularly tight fit where the outer and inner rings are concerned makes these bearings especially suited for use in applications where vibrations or shock load are a regular occurrence.
The radial loads and speed ratings are relatively higher in comparison to other roller bearings. Although primarily for radial loads these bearings can be purchased in several variations allowing them to accept limited amounts of axial load in one or both directions.
