Needle roller bearings are roller bearings which are at least four times as long as their diameter. This means that they have a greater surface area in contact with the actual load, when compared to other cylindrical bearings, allowing them to handle a more substantial load. They are also thinner, and that means that they require reduced clearance between the surrounding structure and the axle itself.
Needle bearings are used in the automotive industry, especially in rocker arm pivots, compressors, pumps and transmission. In the case of a rear wheel drive vehicle, the drive shaft will usually have no less than 8 needle bearings, and in many cases, more than that.
At Simply Bearings, we stock both PNA needle roller bearings and RPNA needle roller bearings. The RPNA needle roller bearings from the EU Budget brand are bearings without an inner race. They have a convex outer surface located in a plastic seating ring which has a conceived inner face. These bearings will accommodate a certain amount of misalignment.
We also stock PNA type needle rollers. These roller bearings are similar to the RPNA bearings, but they are supplied with an inner shaft sleeve. Like the RPNA needle roller bearings, these bearings can tolerate an amount of misalignment. We stock PNA type needle rollers from both the EU Budget brand and other major high quality brands.
Once you have chosen the bearings that you need, you can pay for them using our secure and easy to use online checkout service. We accept a range of payment methods, including debit and credit cards, PayPal, and bank transfer. Then, all you have to do is await delivery. We deliver free to all of our customers in the UK, no matter what the size of your order is, and we also have same day delivery options on certain products. We offer our overseas customers a very competitive delivery rate, and the option to use their own preferred delivery service.
