Thin-wall bearings, also known as slim bearings or thin-section bearings, are specialized types of bearings designed to have a small cross-sectional profile relative to their bore diameter. They are often used in applications where space is limited or where weight reduction is crucial. Thin-wall bearings are commonly found in robotics, aerospace, medical equipment, and industrial machinery.

Thin-wall bearings types

Deep Groove Ball Bearings

These are the most common type of thin-wall bearings. They have a simple design consisting of an outer ring, an inner ring, and a set of balls that roll between the rings. Deep groove ball bearings can handle both radial and axial loads and are suitable for a wide range of applications.

Angular Contact Ball Bearings

These bearings are designed to handle both radial and axial loads in a particular direction. They have raceways in the inner and outer rings that are offset to allow the bearings to handle axial loads in addition to radial loads.

Four-Point Contact Ball Bearings

This type of bearing is designed to handle radial, axial, and moment loads. They have four points of contact between the balls and the raceways, allowing them to handle more complex loading conditions.
