Barden Ball Bearings

IBSCO is a leading distributor of quality, high-performance bearings from Barden Precision Bearings, including:

  • Angular contact bearings, including radial, single row, double direction and super precision bearings. The angular contact bearings are capable of complementing a larger ball due to the partial or total removal of one ring shoulder. This allows for greater load capacity and speed capability.
  • Deep groove ball bearings, including radial, single row and super precision bearings. Deep groove bearings can accept radial loads, thrust loads in any direction and a combination of different loads due to possessing full shoulders on both sides of the raceways of the inner/outer rings. Due to their availability in a plethora of different sizes and the subsequent versatility they show, deep groove bearings are widely used bearings.
  • Cylindrical roller bearings, are ideal for applications that require radial stiffness, high radial capacity and high precision support.
