Standard products are available in both deep groove and angular contact designs.
Standard bearings are typically manufactured from common materials such as 100cr6, Gcr15 or stainless steel alloys, and utilise steel balls. A variety of cage types and lubricants are available and generally selected to compliment the operating environment.
Depending on the application and performance requirements, specialist materials can be used. These include corrosion-resistant high nitrogen steels, ceramic balls, high performance plastic cages and solid lubrication.
BTC's roller bearings comprise of steel inner and outer rings with cylindrical rolling elements. These bearings can also have cages incorporated into the design, depending on the application requirements.
BTC roller bearing products are optimised to have high radial load capacity, high speed capability and low friction. We supply a number of different designs, sizes and configurations in this range, including multiple roller rows, cage material, full complement and flanged designs.
Further information can be requested from our expert engineering department.
Needle bearings are characterised as bearings which incorporate small diameter/long length rolling elements and are typically in a wide range of applications and operating conditions.
They are ideal in applications where a very high load carrying capacity, a compact design is required or where axial displacement must be accommodated.
Various needle bearing types are available from BTC Engineering, including flanged variants, outer ring only, or multiple row configurations.
