 Thrust Bearings | Products & Services | The Timken Company 

Timken designs thrust bearings to manage thrust (axial) loads and provide high-shock-load resistance in a variety of applications. We offer seven basic thrust bearing types: ball, crossed roller, cylindrical, machined tapered, stamped tapered, spherical and needle.
Thrust Ball Bearings

Thrust ball bearings provide optimum performance in high-speed applications, particularly where loads are generally lighter. Timken offers angular contact (types TVL and DTVL) thrust ball designs

Thrust Spherical Roller Bearings

Thrust spherical roller bearings (type TSR) are ideal for applications where conditions include heavy loads, difficulties in establishing or maintaining housing alignment and problems with shaft deflection.

Thrust Cylindrical Roller Bearings

Thrust cylindrical roller bearings are designed to operate under heavy loads at moderate speeds. Special design features are available for even higher rotational speeds. Types include standard (type TP) and aligning washer (type TPS).

Thrust Tapered Bearings

Thrust tapered bearings include rollers that have conical sections. The bearing design ensures a true rolling motion for maximum bearing life and load-carrying capacity. Available in both standard (heavy duty, v-flat, screw down, oscillating and crossed roller) and custom designs.

Needle Thrust Bearings

Thrust needle roller and cage assemblies are designed to transmit a thrust load between two relatively rotating objects while greatly reducing friction. Ideal for automotive, agricultural and construction equipment.
