The Auburn Advantage

A Need Brought an Idea – THAT GREW INTO A PRINCIPLE

Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing manufactures an exclusive line of thrust bearings that are specifically designed to reduce rolling friction. Instead of the usual round groove ball track certain Auburn bearings incorporate a “V” groove raceway. This “V” groove design distributes the load evenly over the balls as they travel on four points of contact, creating a straight line rolling effect and decreasing the amount of friction created by a full contact round groove design. The Auburn styles that incorporate the “V” groove design have the added advantage of being able to carry radial loads equal to 25% of their thrust load capacity.

Our standard bearing rings are made from 52100 Chrome Steel and can be made from Stainless Steel per request.
