One of the most significant components of all machines and even most household appliances is a ball bearing. It helps connect two machine components, which move relative to one another, in a smooth and frictionless motion. While there will be friction on the surface contact area, the same will not disrupt the operations of the machinery. In real life applications of ball bearings it is observed that one component will be a rotating shaft while the other will have a fixed housing.
Ball bearing is not a single component, but an assembly of different components. Primarily there are four main parts in any ball bearing.
These races have different diameters: the smaller one fits inside the larger, and the metal balls fill the space between them which can be restrained and separated using a retainer or cage. Their low friction rotary motion provides smooth operation, high performance and efficient weight management due to their spherical shape.
Ball bearings are almost everywhere. You would be surprised to know how many industries are running on ball bearings.
