Single-row cylindrical roller bearings with cage are units comprising solid inner and outer rings and cylindrical roller and cage assemblies. The outer rings have rigid ribs on both sides or no ribs, and the inner rings have one or two rigid ribs or are designed without ribs. The cage prevents the cylindrical rollers from coming into contact with each other during rolling. Cylindrical roller bearings can be supplied with or without a cage
“Classic” cylindrical roller bearings have extremely high radial load-carrying capacity and high rigidity. In addition to high radial loads, cylindrical roller bearings can also support axial loads if they are used as semi-locating or locating bearings. Whereas radial loads are transferred via the raceways, axial loads are transferred via the rolling element end faces and ribs, which, of course, limits the axial load. This is precisely where Schaeffler gets to work!
