Tapered roller bearings are used when a bearing needs to support combined loads - loads with both horizontal and vertical pressure or force. Typically, they are used in vehicle wheels and axle systems, agriculture, mining and construction machinery, gear boxes, engine motors and reducers. They are based on the idea that cones aligned at the point can roll over each other without slipping, although in practice rather than using entire cones conic sections are used, usually in pairs. The angle of the taper will determine how much weight it can bear. If you are unsure exactly which kind of tapered roller bearing you need, we list the full SKF catalogue on our website, and this includes all the information designers and engineers need to make an informed choice.
