Cylindrical roller bearings

Single-row cylindrical roller bearings offer an advantage over other conventional bearing designs because of how easy they are to dismantle in the inner and outer rings with a roller and cage assembly. This means that the user is offered practical benefits with regards to assembly, dismantling, maintenance and inspection. Cylindrical roller bearings are particularly suitable for transmitting high radial forces. NJ and NUP cylindrical roller bearings can also partly be used for transmitting axial forces. FAG cylindrical roller bearings have a modified linear contact between the rollers and the raceway to prevent edge stresses.
