ZBF BEARING CO.,LTD. is specialized in low-noise deep groove ball bearing, auto bearing, tapered roller bearing, inch design tapered roller bearing, non-standard and special bearing with a maximum outer diameter of 200mm.our annual production capacity is over 12 million pieces.We have been keeping good cooperation with quite a lot of foreign companies and our trademark ZBF has won great reputation and trust among our customers.


First, compared with sliding bearings, the advantages of deep groove ball bearings:

1. The radial clearance is relatively small, and the radial angle contact bearing can be pre-tightened with pre-tightening force to eliminate the play, and the running precision is high;

2. Under normal conditions, the efficiency of rolling bearings is comparable to that of hydrodynamic lubricated bearings, but higher than that of hybrid lubricated bearings;

3. For the shaft diameter of the same size, the width of the rolling bearing is smaller than that of the sliding bearing, which makes the axial structure of the machine compact;

4, high degree of standardization, mass production, less lubricant consumption, easy to seal, easy to maintain, no need for useful non-ferrous metals.

Second, compared with sliding bearings, the disadvantages of deep groove ball bearings:

1. Large vibration and noise;

2. The radial dimension is larger than the sliding bearing;

3. Poor ability to withstand impact loads;

4. Bearing life is low under high speed and heavy load.
