Tapered Roller Bearings

Alongside radial forces, tapered roller bearings are also able to withstand axial forces in one direction. As is the case with the angled ball bearings, the loads are transferred from one ring to another at an angle – the pressure angle – measured to the radial plane. Even when dealing with pure radial loads, a force working in one axial direction will occur due to the pressure angle. These forces must be withstood either by pre-stressing or by using a counter-bearing. Tapered roller bearings can be dismantled. Therefore, the inner ring complete with roller set and the outer ring are to be installed separately.

Available designs:

  • Standard / reinforced design

  • Pressure angle in accordance with ISO

  • Various casing designs available

  • Can be supplied individually or in pairs

  • Can be supplied in metric or imperial


Areas of application:
Amongst other areas, tapered roller bearings are used in construction machines, HGVs and heavy goods trailers in the form of wheel bearings or on motorbikes in the form of steering head bearings.
