Roller Bearings

Roller BearingsSimilar in fundamental design to that of a ball bearing, a roller bearing is specifically designed to handle high radial loads. By replacing the rolling spherical ball element with a steel roller ensures that radial load is distributed along a line of contact as opposed to the point to point secreted within a ball bearing.
By spreading the load or force over a larger 'lined' area, roller bearings can handle a much greater radial force than that of a equivalent sized ball bearing.
Though standard roller bearings are not designed to handle significant axial force, by applying the same principle of lateral rotation, a tapered roller bearing or a thrust bearing containing rollers instead of spherical balls can handle much larger loads of axial force compared to that of conventional ball bearing again due to the distributed 'lined' point of contact a roller facilitates.
