The purpose of a ball bearing is to reduce rotational friction and support radial and axial loads. Radial Ball bearings can support moderate radial loads and moderate axial loads (parallel to the shaft). They can operate at high speeds (400,000 RPMs and higher). Ball bearings assembled with shields or seals for protection are usually lubricated to last for the operating life. Sometimes ball bearings are also called"Deep Groove Ball Bearings". Not All Ball Bearings Are "Radial" Ball Bearings Most ball bearing units are radial ball bearings; however, there are other types of bearings that use balls as their rolling element which are not classified as "radial" ball bearings. These include: Linear Bushing Ball Bearings Linear Way Bearings Radial Ball Bearings Product Line Lily supplies ball bearing catalog of virtually every type and they are sub-classified in the following categories.

Below is a cross sectional view of a typical radial ball bearing. These bearings are produced with high quality materials and exacting tolerances. Each of the individual components such as the rings, balls, cage, shield or seal, and lubricant contribute to the bearings ability to perform in a variety of applications and environments. The designer can choose from an array of materials, precision levels, lubricants, and internal designs to achieve the desired life and performance. Characteristics of Radial Ball Bearings: Radial loads: fair Axial loads: fair (two directions) Combined loading: fair High Speed Bearings: excellent Low Noise: excellent Low torque: excellent Rotational accuracy: excellent Angular misalignment: good Radial ball bearings are easily damaged when subjected to shock or impact loads. Radial ball bearings require lubrication and interior surface must be protected from contaminants or other debris. Shields or seals are highly recommended.
