NTB IKO Thrust Bearings consist of a precisely made
cage and rollers. They have high rigidity and high load
capacities and can be used in small spaces.
Thrust Needle Roller Bearings incorporate needle
rollers, while Thrust Roller Bearings incorporate cylindrical
rollers. Various types of raceway rings are
available, and suitable bearings can be selected
according to the operating conditions.
When the bearing mounting surfaces of a machine
are heat-treated and finished by grinding as raceways,
Thrust Bearings can be used without raceway
rings allowing the machine to be made more compact.
They are most suited to applications where high accuracy
is required at high speeds and under fluctuating
heavy loads, such as driving mechanisms for automobiles,
machine tools, and high-pressure pumps
