Drawn Cup Needle Roller Bearings FAQS

QWhat is a drawn cup needle roller bearing?

ASKF drawn cup needle roller bearings have a deep drawn, thin-walled outer ring. Drawn cup needle roller bearings are typically used in applications where the housing bore cannot be used as a raceway for a needle roller and cage assembly, but where a very compact and economical bearing arrangement is required.

QWhat is the purpose of a thrust washer?

AThrust washers are used as a bearing surface for rotary applications. They are usually made of steel, bronze, plastic, or other materials with low friction coefficients. Thrust washers, sometimes called rotary thrust washers, are washers designed to prevent movement along the axis of a shaft.

QWhat is a bearing seal?

ABearing Seals, also known as grease seals, are used to protect tapered, spherical, cylindrical and double-row bearings from excess grease loss and contamination. In 1956, Clark Seals partnered with The Timken Company to develop the industry's first precision bearings seals for tapered roller bearings.

QWhat is Keystock used for?

ADaemar's Keystock are removable bars that are used to transmit torque from components including couplings, sheaves, sprockets and gears to a shaft. They are called “keys” because they lock a component to the shaft by means of a corresponding keyway in a shaft. Keystock is available in both inch and metric sizes.
