Deep groove ball bearings, for example, are used in applications where high speeds and high radial loads are required. Angular ball bearings are practiced when high axial and radial loads are required, while spindle bearings apply for designs that require high accuracy and rigidity. Self-aligning ball bearings are ideal for situations where self-alignment is required. Thin section bearings have a low mounting height, making them suitable for applications where space is limited. Shoulder ball bearings find their usage in situations where a higher axial load is required, while miniature ball bearings are suitable for situations with limited space or precision requirements.
Choosing the right ball bearing depends on several factors. These include the load, speed, ambient temperature and lubrication conditions.
