Angular contact ball bearings

Angular contact ball bearings have the ability to accommodate both radial and axial loads simultaneously, making them ideal for applications which require combined load carrying capacity. These bearings are commonly found in demanding applications such as pumps, compressors, gearboxes and machine tool spindles.

Single row angular contact bearings can typically accommodate axial load in only one direction. If you require axial load capacity in both directions, you can choose to mount a pair of angular contact ball bearings, or alternativelty you could  consider a double row angular contact ball bearing, which can accommodate axial load in both directions.
