Axial Needle Roller Bearings
Axial needle roller bearings have a high axial load carrying capacity, are extremely rigid and can support axial forces in one direction.
Axial needle roller bearings are particularly suitable where:
high axial forces occur in one direction and no radial loads are present
the load carrying capacity of comparable axial deep groove ball bearings is no longer adequate and the very high axial load carrying capacity of axial cylindrical roller bearings is not yet necessary.
the axial space available is only extremely small.
the bearing parts can or must be mounted separately.
