Similar to other ball bearings, angular contact ball bearings are compose of inner and outer races, ball complement and bearing cage; however, different to other ball bearings like a deep groove ball bearing, an angular contact ball bearing is designed with axially asymmetric race.
Single row angular contact ball bearings are usually used in machine tool spindles, high frequency motors, gas turines, centrifugal separators, front hub of mini vehicles, differential pinions, etc.
Angular contact ball bearings have raceways in the inner and outer rings that are displaced with respect to each other in the direction of the bearing axis. This means that they are designed to accommodate combined loads, i.e. simultaneously acting radial and axial loads.
1) Quality level: reach the same level as the Japanese and European bearings
2) Less coefficient of friction
3) High limiting speed
4) Large size range
5) variations of structur
6) Typical applications: speed reducers, automotive applications, construction equipment, pumps and printing presses
