What is Torrington bearing?

What is Torrington bearing?

Torrington produces a wide assortment of radial and thrust needle roller bearings as well as bearings assemblies for particular applications. Torrington bearings are manufacturing in facilities located in the United States, Canada, Germany, Brazil and Australia, France, China, India and Japan.

What is the difference between radial bearing and thrust bearing?

Axial bearings, or thrust bearings, are designed to withstand force in the same direction as the shaft. Radial ball bearings are designed to withstand forces that are perpendicular to the direction of the shaft, or radial loads.

What is a cylinder bearing?

Cylindrical Roller Bearings are bearing in which cylinders are used as the rolling elements as opposed to balls in ball bearings. As such, the rollers have a greater (linear) contact area with the outer ring and are distribute loads across a broader surface.

What is an INA bearing?

INA is dedicated on the production of extraordinary quality roller bearings, plain bearings and linear components. INA Crossed Roller Bearings design feature rolling elements arranged in an “X” formation giving it power to resist radial, axial and tilted loads from any direction.

What is straight roller bearing?

Straight roller or cylindrical bearings run in cylindrical raceways and have low-friction, high-radial load capacity, and high speed capability. Straight or cylindrical roller bearings can be found in applications like conveyor-belt rollers, which are required to hold heavy radial loads.

Where are Fafnir bearings made?

Fafnir bearings were originally manufactured in New Britain, Connecticut in 1911. The company saw a need for quality ball bearings that were more affordable than their English and German counterparts.

What is a thrust bearing used for?

It is an axial bearing that permits rotation between parts. Thrust bearings support the axial thrust of both horizontal and vertical shafts. The functions are to prevent the shaft from drifting in the axial direction and to transfer thrust loads applied on the shaft.

Who owns Fafnir bearing?

Fafnir merged with Textron in the late 1960’s, in the mid 1980’s the Fafnir division of Textron was merged with the Torrington Company. In 2002, Torrington/Fafnir were acquired by Timken who to this day continue to sell bearings under the Fafnir name.
