Axial Load Capacity

IntroductionSelection Guide Engineering DataBrochure

Deep groove ball bearings by nature of their design can carry axial loads either alone or in combination with radial loads. Axial load capacity of standard bearings is 0.5 times the Basic Static Load Rating, CO of that bearing. Smaller bearings should not be subject to a load greater than 0.25 times CO. Excessive axial loads can lead to serious reduction of bearing service life.
