Ball bearing races and rings are used to minimize friction. Ball bearing races and rings are extremely versatile, which means that they can be used in virtually all tasks in industry. A ball bearing race and ring consists of a sheet steel housing or a solid housing with a supporting ball inside. This supporting ball rests on several balls. These balls allow high loads to be supported.
In order to determine which ball bearing race and ring is required for your application, it is important that attention is paid to the load capacity, the type and quantity, assembly, the surroundings and positioning. The carrying capacity of a ball bearing race and ring may vary between 4 and 4000 kilometres. The load capacity is determined by dividing the weight of the load by three. The product of this sum determines the maximum weight that each ball bearing race and ring should be able to support. Ball bearing races and rings are mainly used on airfields and for conveyor systems. Other possible applications include assembly or production environments.
