For applications that require moving parts that rely on the rotational motion of shafts, a roller bearing should be employed to mitigate movement. Roller bearings allow for additional support and reduced friction within such mechanisms. As they are common components in many systems across various industry verticals, roller bearings are available in a vast array of designs to fit different applications. When you are looking for certain aviation applications, such as aircraft fuel pumps, the best option is a tapered roller bearing, those of which contain an inner ring, outer ring, and a number of tapered rollers. Shaped like a cone, these mechanisms are able to withstand heavy axial and radial loads. As such, they are quite versatile, so this blog will explore the workings of tapered roller bearings for your better knowledge for various applications.

While there are many bearing options available, roller-element bearings should be considered whenever high radial loads are present in a rotational system. Ultimately designed to reduce friction while facilitating motion in a particular direction, roller-element bearings employ cylindrical rollers to assist machinery with their individual load requirements, modes of operation, as well as aim to minimize the impact of forces exerted on mechanical equipment within an assembly. Further improving part flexibility, roller bearings come in four common types, each of which supports different load demands depending on the shape of the rollers used. Consisting of cylindrical, needle, tapered, and spherical roller bearings, we will go into detail on how these parts work to better assist you with your part procurement needs.
