We are proud of our reputation as a reliable first port of call for all things bearings, and we're certain that we'll be able to find the precise part you need within our ultra-modern 20,000 sq. ft. warehouse.
Needle thrust bearings are used to give a high degree of durability and stiffness, using minimal axial space and generating high axial load capacities. Needle roller thrust bearings deliver a high level of reliability in a wide variety of different applications, ranging from industrial machinery and machine tools to automotive drive trains and high-pressure pumps - any setting that requires high load capacities, high limiting speeds and compact unit sizes.
Indeed, in environments where the adjacent faces of machine components can act as raceways, needle thrust cages and bearings occupy no more space than a normal thrust washer, and in this context would make thrust washers redundant, saving even more space. The ends of the roller bearings are slightly tapered to modify the line of contact between the rollers and the raceway. This design feature eradicates stress peaks at the ends of the rollers, extending the service life of the bearings considerably.
The bearing units consist of machined or stamped cages and needle rollers. The cage holding the roller bearings in place is paired in design with thrust washers that function as raceways. The minimal diameter deviation of the needle rollers within each assembly allows the bearing rollers to deliver high accuracy under fluctuating heavy axial and shock loads. The unit is held together with central needle thrust spigots.
We stock needle roller thrust components in multiple configurations, to facilitate with replacements and repairs, ensuring that you only purchase the part that you need. By browsing the categories below, you'll find needle thrust cages, needle thrust washers, and needle thrust races, all available individually. We do, of course, stock complete assemblies as well.
