Rolling-Element Bearings

Rolling-element bearings consist of ball bearings and roller bearings. Ball bearings typically have higher speed and lower load capabilities than roller bearings. Both types are available as unmounted or premounted assemblies. Premounted bearings provide proper bearing support and reduce design and assembly time, but they are bulkier and more costly than unmounted bearings.
