A roller bearing is a type of rolling-element bearing that uses a cylinder (roller) instead of a ball. In general, the cylindrical bearings allow for greater radial loads. They are made to handle heavier loads than ball bearings.
There are several types of roller bearings:
Due to the simplicity of their design and cost effectiveness, GGB innovative plain bearings offer a variety of significant advantages compared with roller bearings. Learn why design engineers are increasingly replacing roller or needle bearings with plain bearings in a wide range of applications.
