In Cylindrical Roller bearings, the cylindrical rollers are in linear contact with the raceways. They have a high radial load capacity and are suitable for high speeds.
There are different types designated as NU, NJ, NUP, N, NF ,NH, NNU, and NN
The outer and inner rings of all types are separable. Pressed steel or machined brass cages are generally used, but sometimes molded polyamide cages are also used.
Cylindrical roller bearings have line contact between the rollers and raceway, therefore radial load capability is high, making this bearing superior in regards to its ability to withstand heavy loads and impact loads. Moreover, mounting and removing is easy due to the inner ring and outer ring being separable.
CYLINDRICAL BEARING APPLICATIONS
Cylindrical bearings are extremely versatile and may be used for many applications. Common cylindrical bearing uses include:
