Miniature Bearings

Ball Bearings with ID less than 10mm are classified as Miniature Bearings. These are basically Deep Groove Ball Bearings and classified separately as per the size of bearing. Miniature Bearings are: capable of carrying relatively smaller loads suitable for low, medium and high speed applications suited for low noise and low torque applications KG can…

Needle Roller Bearings

The rolling elements of Needle Roller bearings are cylindrical in shape with the roller’s length being far greater than its diameter. These bearings are used where limited space is available between shaft and housing. Needle Roller Bearings are: capable of carrying radial loads suitable for low and medium speed applications mainly used in gearbox, steering,…

Thrust Roller Bearings

Thrust Roller Bearings are preferred for axial load applications, as they provide higher rigidity in comparison to other types. Thrust Roller Bearings are of three types: Cylindrical Roller Thrust Bearings Tapered Roller Thrust Bearings Spherical Roller Thrust Bearings Spherical Roller Thrust Bearing is a self-aligning bearing. In service, it allows a maximum shaft misalignment of…

Thrust Ball Bearings

Thrust Ball Bearings are designed to handle axial/thrust loads only. They should not be used for any radial load applications. A bearing ring mounted on the shaft is called a shaft washer, and the one mounted on housing is called a housing washer. Thrust Ball Bearings are of two types: Single Direction type Suitable for…

Plummer Block Housings

Plummer Block Housings help to form bearing units, with Self-aligning Ball Bearings and Spherical Roller Bearings. They permit flexibility in the choice of bearing, location on shaft, seals and lubrication. Made on a modular principle using Cast Iron HT 200 JIS 5501, KG housings are available in a wide range of sizes to suit various…

Ball Bearing Units

Ball Bearing units are simple and economic bearing arrangements. They offer convenient means to use rolling contact bearings for various applications, without the need of separate housing to support the bearing. Ball Bearing Units consist of insert ball bearings and housing. Ball Bearing units are: capable of handling shaft misalignment (initial errors of alignment) up…

Tapered Roller Bearings

As the name implies, the rolling elements and raceways (of outer and inner rings) of these bearing are made with a tapered profile. These bearings can be separated into components, i.e. outer ring (cup), and the combined inner ring and roller assembly (cone). Tapered Roller Bearings are further classified into: Single Row A Single Row…

Sleeve Assembly and Sleeve Parts

Adapter Sleeves  Adapter Sleeves typically comprise a slotted sleeve, a locknut and a retaining plate. Adapter Sleeves facilitate mounting of Tapered Bore Self-aligning Ball Bearings, Spherical Bearings, and Cylindrical Roller Bearings, on cylindrical shafts help to mount bearings on a smooth shaft, at any location enable easy mounting and dismounting of bearings are available for…

Automotive Bearings

Many types of bearings have been designed to meet the specific requirements of the automotive industry. They are primarily Angular Contact Ball Bearings, with additional features to suit industry requirements. KG has developed numerous automotive bearings for: Wheel applications Clutch release Steering assemblies Car air conditioners Hub unit assemblies Water pumps of automobiles Apart from…

Slewing Rings and Slew Drives

Slewing bearings are large size rolling bearings that can accommodate axial, radial and moment loads acting either in single or in combination or in any direction. They can perform both slewing movements as well as rotational movements. Slewing Ring Bearing consists of: Inner ring Outer ring Rolling elements – balls/cylindrical rollers Polyamide spacers The rings,…
