All bearings are very unique in their construction and have special capabilities to carry loads. Ball bearings have a niche area in the field of bearings. It is common for every bearing to be named based on its rolling element and the same applies to the ball bearings. Here the rolling elements are nothing but “Spherical balls”.
Ball bearings are also called as “Deep grove Ball bearing” because of their constructional aspects. The balls are made to run in deep grooves formed in the inner race and outer race of the bearing.
