Deep groove ball bearings are versatile, self-retaining bearings. These bearings, which are of simple design, robust in operation and easy to maintain, are available in single row and double row designs and in open and sealed variants.
Single row deep groove ball bearings are the most frequently used type of rolling bearing. They are produced in numerous sizes and designs and are particularly economical. Due to their very low frictional torque, open bearings are suitable for high and very high speeds. Bearing designs with gap seals are suitable for high speeds.
Single row deep groove ball bearings are only suitable for compensating static misalignments to a very limited extent. As a result, the bearing positions must be well aligned.
