Cylindrical Roller Bearings

Cylindrical roller bearings use rollers for rolling elements, and therefore has a high load

capacity. The rollers are guided by the ribs of the inner or outer ring. The inner and outer

rings can be separated to facilitate assembly, and both can be fitted with shaft or

housing tightly. If there are no ribs, either the inner or the outer ring can move freely

in the axial direction. Cylindrical roller bearings are of different types, like N, NU, NJ,

NUP, NF depending upon the construction of inner and outer rings. Cylindrical roller

bearings are designed with multiple row rollers and full complement rollers without

cage depending on the applications. These bearings are suitable for heavy radial

and impact loading and are appropriate for high speed applications.
