Needle Roller Bearings
Needle Roller Bearings have cylindrical rollers which are thin and long in relation to their diameter. In spite of their low cross section, the bearings have a high load carrying capacity and are thus eminently suitable for bearing arrangements where radial space is limited.
The needle rollers have a profile which is slightly relieved towards the roller ends. The resultant modified line contact between needle rollers and raceways means that damaging edge stresses are avoided
