|"To Bear", Bearings are derived from this term. It refers to one machine part allowing another machine part "to bear" for it. To take the load. A
bearing provides for a free linear movement of a moving part. It is a machine element that helps facilitate the desired motion as much as possible by
minimizing friction . Bearing are classified by the type of motion allowed or to the forces allowed.
Knowing all this helps us break down bearings into sub categories, Radial bearings and Thrust bearings. The most common Radial Bearing is a ball
bearing. It uses balls to reduce rotational friction.
(see illustration 1A). A radial bearing supports a turning part, perpendicular to the axis of rotation. There is a cut away of a high speed angular
contact bearing (see illustration 1B). Radial bearing are made with precision to handle slow turning applications up to high speed spindle
applications. Thrust Bearings are more of a rotary bearing. There main purpose and design are for axial loads. The most common thrust bearing that
you use every day is the tapered roller bearing used in the wheel axial of your car, (see illustration 1C). There are many components making up a
bearing(see illustration 1D). Again all made specifically for the perfect applications.
