Q: What is a thrust ball bearing?
A: A thrust ball bearing is a type of rolling element bearing designed to handle axial loads, which are forces acting parallel to the bearing's axis. It consists of two relatively flat rings, known as the housing washer and the shaft washer, with a set of balls sandwiched between them.
Q: How does a thrust ball bearing work?
A: Thrust ball bearings work by transmitting axial loads through the balls and the contact surfaces of the washers. The angle of the contact surfaces allows the bearing to support high axial loads while maintaining relatively low radial load-carrying capacity.
Q: What are the advantages of using thrust ball bearings?
A: Thrust ball bearings offer several advantages:
