A ball bearings is a rolling-element bearing that relies on balls to keep the bearing races apart. A ball bearing's job is to decrease rotational friction while also supporting radial and axial stresses. Ball bearings have been around for hundreds of years and have been utilized in various applications — intended to accommodate thrust and radial stresses in everything from hard drives to skateboards. On the other hand, ball bearings are also often used in situations with lower pressures.
Also known as mechanical bearings, these rolling elements are revolutionizing a multitude of industrial machinery from food to energy and beyond. As Asia's Number 1 mechanical component distributor, the team at SLS Bearings is here to talk about all the ways bearings can and do revolutionize industries around the world. From general ball bearings and roller bearings, these mechanical components are taking the axial loads and radial loads required to help increase the speed, efficiency and power[...]
