Versions of miniature ball bearings
- Single row
- Main dimensions according to DIN 625-1. Inside diameter below 10 mm. Economical "all-round bearing". Versatile.
- Miniature flanged housing units
- For simplified locating bores in which the bearing is supposed to be axially fixed. Inside diameter below 10 mm.
- Full complement ball set
- Without a cage and maximum number of balls, higher load carrying capacity than caged miniature ball bearings of the same size.
Material description of miniature ball bearings
- Miniature ball bearings made of rolling bearing steel
- are extremely economical, withstand extremely high load-ratings and are suitable for temperatures from circa -10°C up to +120°C, in case of rubber seals up to circa +100°C in the long run. The rolling bearing steel is wear-resistant, shock-resistant, conductive and magnetic.
- Miniature ball bearings made of stainless steel
- are hygienic, corrosion-resistant, lubricated with grease for the food industry, offer high load-ratings and are admissible for a temperature range from circa -20°C up to +120°C, in case of rubber seals up to circa +100°C in the long run.
- Hybrid bearings with ceramic balls and rings made of stainless steel or rolling bearing steel
- are subject to a lesser wear and tear compared to bearings of similar size with steel balls. The ceramic balls are current insulating - optimally for use in engines and generators. Hybrid bearings are lighter than bearings with steel balls of the same size, withstand higher speeds and operate in a temperature range from circa -20°C up to +130°C, in case of rubber seals up to circa +100°C in the long run.
- Miniature ball bearings made of ceramic
- are extremely wear-resistant by their great hardness, corrosion-resistant and durable. They have good emergency running characteristics, are lighter than steel bearings of the same size, suitable for dry run, current insulating, non-magnetic, withstand extremely high speeds. Bearinngs with cages made of PTFE operate up to a temperature of circa +160°C, bearings with cages made of PEEK up to a temperature of circa +160°C.
