Bearings from the top suppliers in Europe

If you’ve wondered about terms like spherical roller, needle roller, and taper roller, bearings must be at the top of your recent search list. Bearings are machine elements designed to reduce friction between moving parts. It enhances a system’s speed and efficiency by enabling rotational and linear movement in a device.
The smooth motion prevents excess heat generation and increases the service life of parts by reducing the wear and tear. Bearings also reduce energy consumption by replacing sliding motions with low-friction rolling.
A bearing assembly usually consists of rolling elements, such as balls or cylinders between a stationary and a turning race. The balls or cylinders carry the load, allowing the device to spin freely. Like wheels, bearings have two main functions in a system: to transmit forces by rolling, bearing, or sliding and enabling the transfer of motion, allowing components in tandem.
Bearings are classified under different criteria, including operating mode, design, the direction of the load, and allowed motion. Your choice of the bearing will depend on your application requirements.
Kildare Engineering Supplies Ltd. has a wide variety of bearings as a registered trademark. Feel free to explore our collection of top brands for your next engineering project.
DOUBLE ROW BALL BEARINGS
Double row ball bearings feature two rows of deep groove ball bearings arranged back to back. The design is suitable for accommodating simultaneous axial loads and a radial load in both directions. We have these bearings equipped with different characteristics.
cYLINDRICAL ROLLER BEARINGS
If you need line contact between the raceway and rollers, cylindrical roller bearings meet the challenges of applications with a high speed or heavy radial loads. It is available in various designs, sizes, variants, and series to fit any project.
Handy bicycle bearings have a broad array of applications, from headset bearings and pivot bearings to hub bearings and bottom bracket or cartridge bearings. Our bicycle bearings are suitable for many different types of bikes and materials, as well.
Ball bearings the most common types of bearings, handling both radial and thrust loads. These bearings work well for numerous applications, from simple devices to complex machines. Ball bearings commonly appear in pulleys, engines, and gearboxes. Browse the range at Kildare Engineering Supplies Ltd. for an array of bearings options.
