Taper Roller Bearings

Taper roller bearings, often called cup & cone Bearings are designed to take large axial and radial loads simultaneously.

The inner and outer raceways are segments of cone and the roller are also made with a taper so that the conical surfaces of the raceways and roller axes if projected, would all meet at a common point on the main axis of the bearing.

The rollers are guided by a flange on the inner ring this stops the rollers from sliding out at high speeds.

Taper roller bearings are separable and have the following components: outer ring known as the cup and the inner ring attached to which is the cage and rollers, known as the cone.

These bearings come in a very wide range of both metric and imperial sizes.
