The raceways of both the inner and outer rings of this bearing type are made with a set contact angle. These bearings are non-separable. Since the balls are inserted utilizing counter-bore construction, a larger number of balls can be installed than in the case of Deep- groove ball bearings.
Standard cage materials may be pressed steel, high-strength brass, or synthetic resin. Cage material is dependent on the bearing series and or service condition.
Double-row Angular Contact Ball Bearings
The construction of this type ball bearing is similar to the adjacent, BACK-TO- BACK mounting of two Single-row Angular Contact ball bearings.
Because fewer balls can be inserted per row compared to Single-row Angular Contact ball bearings, a Double-row Angular Contact ball bearing will have less load capacity than an equivalent size/series BACK-TO-BACK set of two Single-row Angular Contact ball bearings. This bearing type can sustain radial, moment and bi-directional axial loads.
