Ball Bearings – Radial

Ball Bearings – Radial

The basic bearing of excellence, the ball bearing is designed to accept radial and/or axial loads according to internal design.

Radial Contact Bearings

Standard Ranges

Sheet, solid or reinforced polyamide cage depending on the series and dimensions.

Metric Range
  • 1 row: 6700, 6800, 6900,16000, 6000, 6200, 6300, 6400
    –Miniature range (SEE PAGE 5)
    –Large bearings: bore ≤ 1320 mm
  • 2 rows: 4200, 4300
Inch Range (R-)
  • Reduced (-C2) or enhanced (-C3, -C4, -C5)
    internal radial clearances
  • Increased precisions (-P6, -P5, -P4)
Ring Modifications
  • Presence of a groove on the outer ring with (-NR) or without a snap ring (-N)
  • Tapered bore (-K), spherical outer diameter (-S)
  • Other materials
    –Case hardened steel (E-)
    –Stainless steel (SEE STAINLESS STEEL RANGE*)
    — Special steel with special heat treatment for long lifetime (TMB-, TAB-)
  • Stabilisation for higher-than-standard operating temperatures (TS1 / TS2 / TS3 / TSX)
Bearing Number Example
Specific Ranges

Developed for tough environments.

Expansion Compensating Bearings
  • EC: if a tight adjustment on the outer ring (rotating loads on the outer ring) is impossible or a risk of ring rotation exists.
  • AC: similar concept to EC- range, the anti-rotation function is provided by two O- rings
* Stainless Steel Range (S- by SNR, F- by NTN): to prevent
corrosion (maritime environments, food, etc.)
TOPLINE Range: Standard dimensions for specific applications
Specific restrictions Characteristics Suffixes
High temperatures +150°C -FT150
High temperatures +200°C -HT200
High temperatures +350°C -F600
Low temperatures -60°C -LT
High speeds Up to 700 000 NDm -HV
EMTR Range: low noise quality level with optimised design,
especially for electrical motors
MEGAOHM Range: bearings with electrical insulation- mainly for applications with electrical motors and generators
CLEAN Range: for environments with an extreme vacuum (semi-conductors, aeronautics, etc.)
