Roller Bearings

The principal types of roller bearings are cylindrical, spherical, tapered, and needle. In general, they have higher load capacities than ball bearings of the same size and are widely used in heavy-duty moderate-speed applications. However, except for cylindrical bearings, they have lower speed capabilities.
