Tapered Roller Bearing Full Assemblies

Tapered roller bearings have tapered inner and outer raceways and rollers to handle simultaneous radial and thrust loads. Their axial load carrying capacity is directly related to the contact angle of the rollers and raceway shaft. They are available in single-row, double-row, and four-row designs. The individual parts of tapered roller bearings are commonly sold separately as cups and cones. Cones contain the roller assembly and inner ring while cups include the outer ring. Full assembly units contain both the cup and cone. As separable bearings, different designs and sizes are available to accommodate a variety of applications.

It is important to note that tapered roller bearings are predominantly sold as individual components. Therefore it is important to know the part number of both the cup and the cone, as they will most often differ and there are often many cup/ cone combinations available. While feasible to replace only the cup or the cone when replacing a tapered roller bearing, it is not recommended as it greatly decreases bearing life.
