Taper Roller Bearings

These bearings find their utility in various sectors, from heavy machinery to automotive, ensuring reliable load distribution and efficient performance. Trusted by professionals across industries, our taper roller bearings guarantee smooth operation under diverse conditions.

Imperial Taper Roller Bearings

The tapered roller bearing withstands high radial loads and supports axial loads in one direction. Available in 1, 2 or 4 rows, it is generally mounted in opposition with an identical bearing and the axial adjustment enables a high reduction in clearance. This type of roller bearing is particularly suitable for applications such as rolling mills, rear axles, wheels of road vehicles and agricultural equipment. We have listed the most common sizes below, however if you can't see what you are looking for call us on 0845 1237344.

Metric Taper Roller Bearings

Metric Taper Roller Bearings are designed so that the cups, cones and rollers have tapered surfaces whose apexes converge at a common point on the bearing axis. This type is suitable for applications involving heavy or impact loading. Taper roller bearings consist of an inner ring (cone), an outer ring (cup), a cage and rollers which are profiled to distribute the load evenly. They have high radial and axial (thrust) load capacities at low to intermediate speeds. Taper roller bearings are available in single-row, two-row and four-row designs. With single-row bearings, the thrust load capacity is about 60% of the radial capacity. Double-row bearings have a greater radial load capacity and can handle thrust loads in both directions.

Specialist Roller Bearings

Plummer blocks, a specialised type of roller bearings, offer robust support for heavy loads in industrial machinery. Featuring sturdy construction and accommodating various shaft sizes, these units excel in applications requiring precise alignment and resistance to shock and vibration. Plummer blocks are vital components in sectors like mining, manufacturing, and steel production, ensuring smooth operation and extended bearing life even under demanding conditions.
