IKO Bearings is a leading manufacturer in the marketplace globally, with more than 70 years of experience creating bearing solutions across industries. IKO specializes in manufacturing quality needle bearings, precision positioning systems/tables, linear motion rolling guides, and other machine components.
IKO needle roller bearings use small, cylindrical rollers to reduce the friction of a rotating surface. They are available in a variety of designs and a wide range of sizes, meaning IKO needle roller bearings are suitable for an array of applications and operating environments. In comparison to ball bearings and ordinary roller bearing types, needle roller bearings have a greater surface area in contact with the races, meaning they are able to support greater carrying loads. They’re also thinner by design, and thus require less clearance between the axle and surrounding components.
Needle Roller Bearings Features:
Higher load carrying capacity
Designed to withstand oscillation
Can perform well in severe conditions
Are interchangeable with sliding bearings
IKO needle roller bearings are heavily used in automobile applications such as transmissions, pumps, compressors, and rocker arm pivots. In fact, the driveshaft of a rear-wheel drive vehicle generally includes at least eight needle bearings.
