Drawn Cup Needle Roller Bearings

Drawn cup needle roller bearings have a deep drawn, thin-walled outer ring. Drawn cup needle roller bearings are typically used in applications where the housing bore cannot be used as a raceway for a needle roller and cage assembly, but where a very compact and economical bearing arrangement is required.

Drawn Cup Needle Roller Bearings

Drawn cup needle roller bearings, as the name suggests, are needle roller bearings with a deep drawn, thin-walled outer ring with either open ends or a closed end. These bearings are mounted with a tight interference fit in the housing. That enables a simple and economic design of the housing bore, as shoulders or snap rings are not required to locate the bearing axially. They are characterized by a very low sectional height and high load carrying capacity.

Types of Drawn cup needle roller bearings

Drawn cup needle roller bearings with open ends:

  • are available open (without seals) or sealed on one or both sides.

Drawn cup needle roller bearings with a closed end:

  • are available open or sealed.
  • are suitable for bearing arrangements where they are situated at the end of a shaft.
  • accommodate small axial guidance forces, because of the profiled design of their closed end.

Full complement bearings with open ends:

  • are suitable for very heavy radial loads at moderate speeds.
  • are available with open ends and without seals only.

Features of Drawn cup needle roller bearings

  • Low cross section
    In applications where less space is available, drawn cup needle roller bearings enable downsizing.
  • High load carrying capacity and stiffness
    Owing to their large number of rollers, drawn cup needle roller bearings have a high load carrying capacity and stiffness.
  • Good running properties

Applications of Drawn cup needle roller bearings

Drawn cup needle roller bearings are typically used in applications where the housing bore cannot be used as a raceway for a needle roller and cage assembly, but where a very compact and economical bearing arrangement is required.

  • pulleys
  • valve trains
  • power tools
