Bearings

 

Anchor Engineering offers an expansive and diverse range of bearing stock, encompassing various types from a wide array of manufacturers. Whether you have a preference for bearings from top tier brands or are content with more budget friendly alternatives, Anchor Engineering can readily fulfil all your requirements. If a specific bearing isn’t available in our current inventory, you can count on us to source it for you!

Due to the dynamic nature of our bearing stockholding, creating a conventional catalogue is not feasible. Instead, on each page, we have either provided or will provide a carefully selected assortment of catalogues. Our team is well versed in all of these catalogues, and our in house database and interchange capabilities enable us to converse with you in a manner that aligns with your familiarity and preferences.

Ball Bearings

We maintain an extensive ball bearing inventory encompassing a wide variety of styles and brands. These bearings cater to diverse needs, serving both high performance seekers and those with less demanding requirements who aim to reduce their bearing expenditure.

Deep Groove Ball Bearings
Ball bearings comprise two bearing rings separated by multiple balls, with a wide size range spanning from 3mm to 1500mm bore (and larger sizes available on special order). They come in non-separable configurations, including both open and sealed designs. Various cage designs, including steel, plastic, and brass, are available. These bearings can be suitable for high-speed applications and are capable of handling both radial and axial loads in both directions.
Angular Contact Ball Bearings
Angular contact ball bearings have an increased contact angle for better axial load capacity and positioning control.

They come in standard bore sizes from 10mm to 200mm or 3/8″ to 15″, with cages made of steel, molded polyamide, machined brass, or phenolic resin. The standard contact angles are 20° (7000, 7200, 7300, and 7400 series) or 40° (7200B and 7300B series), while other angles like 15°, 30°, and 60° exist.

Imperial bearings (LJT and MJT) usually have a 20° contact angle. Magneto bearings have a separable outer ring and are for lighter duty. These bearings typically work in pairs due to their one-directional axial load capacity.

Self-aligning Ball Bearings
Featuring two rows of balls and a shared spherical raceway in the outer ring, these bearings can accommodate relatively significant angular misalignments.

They are well-suited for operations at relatively high speeds and are commonly employed alongside 7225- or SN-style bearing housings to provide shaft support in various general industrial applications.

These bearings come with either a parallel or tapered bore, which determines whether they are sold with metric or imperial tapered sleeves.

Cylindrical Roller Bearings

We offer a comprehensive range of roller bearings, from the smallest sizes to some of the largest multi-roll bearings. Whether in stock or quickly manufactured, we have you covered.

Cylindrical roller bearings handle higher loads than similar sized ball bearings. Our selection includes single, double, or multi-row designs and various lip profiles like N, NJ, NU, and NUP designs. You can choose from steel, plastic, or brass cages or full complement designs, which may vary by brand. We also offer split bearings for easy replacement in time sensitive applications and special executions like super precision, hybrid, and insulated versions for traction motors.

Needle Roller Bearings

Needle roller bearings are generally defined by having rollers with a length approximately five times their diameter. They can be categorised into needle roller cage assemblies, drawn cup needle roller bearings (including needle clutch bearings), heavy-duty or machined race needle roller bearings, cam followers and yoke rollers, and thrust needle bearings.

Plain Bearings

We maintain an extensive inventory of dry sliding bearings, lubricated sliding bearings, standard wrapped bearings, hard bronze bearings, and “Oilite” bushes to cater to a wide range of bearing needs.

Spherical Plain Bearings & Rod Ends

Spherical plain bearings handle high radial and axial loads efficiently in a compact design, thanks to their extensive contact area. They are particularly well suited for stationary or oscillating applications commonly encountered in mining and construction industries.

Spherical Roller Bearings

Spherical roller bearings, often referred to as SRBs, are extensively employed in various industries and are commonly used in conjunction with bearing housings. These bearings are characterized by two inclined rows of rollers running along a common spherical raceway in the outer ring. This unique design grants them the capability to efficiently carry both axial and radial loads in a self-aligning manner, accommodating dynamic misalignments ranging from 1 to 2.5 degrees.

Key features of SRBs include options for various cage designs such as steel, brass, or polyamide, depending on the manufacturer. The choice between a parallel or tapered bore is available, as well as sealed variants, although split designs are less common. Typically, SRBs have a normal operational temperature limit of 120°C, with the option for heat-stabilized bearings for applications requiring higher temperatures, obtainable through special orders.

Tapered Roller Bearings

Tapered roller bearings feature inner and outer ring raceways (often called the cone and cup, respectively) that are tapered and separated by tapered rollers. They are designed to handle both radial and axial loads simultaneously. The raceway projection lines converge at a common point along the bearing axis, ensuring smooth rolling and low friction. The axial load capacity of tapered roller bearings increases with a higher contact angle (α).

These bearings come in single, double, and multi-row designs, and can be supplied as matched pairs or assemblies.

We now hold one of the largest stocks of bearing & Power Transmission products in the country.
