Cost Savings with Nylon Large Diameter Bearings


When using large diameter thrust bearings, typically they are heavy with large diameter balls or rollers and designed to handle a load of thousands of pounds. However, when you need a larger diameter thrust bearing and your thrust load does not exceed 500 lbf, Torque Transmission has the perfect solution.

Not every application requires a 25 pound bearing that stacks 3 inches high. Avoid overkill with our lightweight nylon thrust ball bearings. They're long lasting, resistant to corrosion, and feature natural lubricity. The best part is that they cost a fraction of standard large diameter thrust bearings. When specifying the parts for a project, most design engineers have found the selection of large diameter thrust bearings to be limited and costly. This solution will help you meet the needs of design and budget. 

The large diameter bearings are ideal for light duty and low RPM industrial applications. Making use of the strength and durability of steel washers and the performance advantages of a nylon retainer, these bearings offer superior performance.

Large Diameter Bearing Applications

While large diameter bearings can be found across a wide range of industries and applications, some of the most common applications include:

  • Advertising signage
  • Rotating tables
  • Workstations
  • Marine hardware
  • Point of purchase displays

We can design, prototype, and manufacture custom bearing solutions if our standard bearings do not meet your application's requirements.
