Combined roller bearings are also known as combined needle roller bearings and they are made up of a radial needle roller bearing that is then combined with a thrust bearing. This means that they can withstand and accommodate both radial and axial loads and are the perfect choice for applications where radial space is limited. Combined roller bearings are well suited to a range of different applications including oil drilling, exploration equipment and forklift truck attachments and other applications that require high loads.
As well as being well suited to applications with high loads, combined roller bearings are able to operate within high-precision environments with common uses including medical machinery. There are many types of combined roller bearings including needle roller bearings with thrust ball bearings, needle roller bearings with thrust roller bearings and needle roller bearings with three-point contact ball bearings.
Where space is limited combined roller bearings could be the ideal solution and they are particularly suited where axial loads are heavy and speeds are high. At Hunt Bearings we offer four main styles of combined bearings which are:
Needle roller bearings with thrust ball bearings
Needle roller bearings with thrust roller bearings
Needle roller bearings with angular contact ball bearing
Needle roller bearings with three-point contact ball bearings
For all combined roller bearings the maintenance and lubrication of the radial and the thrust element of the bearings needs to be calculated separately. If in doubt you should always use the shorter of the two intervals for maintenance and lubrication.
