Radial / Deep Groove Bearings

IBSCO offers a complete selection of radial ball bearings, the most common bearing configuration. Also called deep groove ball bearings, these bearings are designed with race dimensions closer to the dimension of the balls that run in it, allowing for the support of higher loads. A radial bearing or deep groove ball bearing consists of two concentric, symmetric rings (or races) that are configured to support a load across the radius of the bearing. While most radial bearing designs also support modest axial loads, significant off-axis load-bearing capability is commonly addressed through the use of an angular contact bearing.

What Are Radial Ball Bearings Used For?

Performance can be impacted by the quality of the cage and cage material (which can determine whether the bearing can operate at 5,000 or 500,000 rpm), the raceway finish, and consistent geometry in the interior. Our radial bearings and deep groove ball bearings are ideal for applications that require precise rotation with low torque and high-speed operation, such as:

  • Vacuums
  • Tools
  • Motors
  • Fans

Single Row vs. Double Row Deep Groove Bearings

As part of our inventory of deep groove radial bearings, we offer both single row and double row variations. Single row, deep groove radial bearings have one row of bearing balls, while double row, deep groove bearings contain two rows of bearing balls. Both work for radial and thrust loads, however, double row bearings often need better alignment in the shaft and housing than single-rows.
