Flange bearings are cost effective by not requiring spot facing when housing the end face. Many small balls are used in our extra thin type bearings, making friction torque and torque fluctuation low. They are very resilient and rotate smoothly.
They are available open, shielded or sealed and Teflon Sealed, Rubber Seals. Tolerance can be made: ABEC-1, ABEC-3, ABEC-5, ABEC-7 to ABEC-9 with bore sizes as small as 1mm. The smaller sizes are sometimes referred to as instrument bearings. Available in SAE52100 chrome steel and AISI440C or KS440 (ACD34/X65Cr13) stainless steel, these metric sized deep groove radial flanged miniature bearings can withstand heavy radial loads and moderate thrust loads in both directions. Flanged miniature bearings have an outer ring flange to facilitate location in a housing.
Many of these flanged miniature bearings can be supplied to order with ceramic balls (hybrid bearings). Most sizes are available in stainless steel or passivated stainless steel for more corrosive environments.
flanged Bore sizes 0.0937 to 0.5000 inches
