Double direction cylindrical roller thrust bearings

Double direction cylindrical roller thrust bearings are composed of two housing washers (GS), a shaft washer (WS) and two cage-roller assemblies. These bearings are characterized by a very high load carrying capacity and high stiffness. They can accommodate axial loads in both directions, but cannot withstand radial forces and tilting moments.

Main types

  • Type WS+GS

    • Flat housing washers
    • Separable components unit: shaft washers (WS) plus housing washers (GS)
    • Two-piece machined brass cage (M) guided on rollers
    • Sensitive to misalignments
    • Supports very high bidirectional axial loads
