The main difference between a roller bearings and a ball bearing is in the contact areas of the rolling elements.

Rollers have linear contact while balls have point contact. Roller bearings therefore have higher radial load carrying capacities, but usually operate at lower speeds due to greater friction caused by a larger contact area. This makes roller bearings more suitable for use in heavy assemblies. Roller bearings can have either cylindrical or tapered rollers – each having unique benefits over the other and are chosen depending upon application requirements.


Due to their high load carrying capacity, Roller Bearings are ideally suited for use in Construction Machinery such as Crawler Dozers and Off-highway trucks. However, roller bearings are used in many different industries including the Pump & Compressor industry - on machinery such as screw compressors and piston pumps, and also in the Pulp & Paper industry on Paper Making machinery, to name a few.
