Change of Koyo Individual and Carton boxes for Ball Bearing Units

JTEKT has extensively been working on the improvement of the Koyo product packaging. Our product packaging helps us to ensure that our bearings are well protected during all transits and arrive in top condition at the end-user.

The packaging offers also an opportunity to positively impact our brand’s image. Therefore we are pleased to inform you that we are gradually introducing new individual and carton boxes for our Ball Bearing Units range in the distribution market for the month of February.

Should you require more information about these changes, please contact your local Koyo Account-manager.

FAQ

What is an angular contact ball bearing?

An angular contact ball bearing uses axially asymmetric races. An axial load passes in a straight line through the bearing, whereas a radial load takes an oblique path that tends to want to separate the races axially. So the angle of contact on the inner race is the same as that on the outer race. Angular contact bearings better support "combined loads" (loading in both the radial and axial directions) and the contact angle of the bearing should be matched to the relative proportions of each. The larger the contact angle (typically in the range 10 to 45 degrees), the higher the axial load supported, but the lower the radial load. In high speed applications, such as turbines, jet engines, and dentistry equipment, the centrifugal forces generated by the balls changes the contact angle at the inner and outer race. Ceramics such as silicon nitride are now regularly used in such applications due to their low density (40% of steel). These materials significantly reduce centrifugal force and function well in high temperature environments. They also tend to wear in a similar way to bearing steel—rather than cracking or shattering like glass or porcelain.

Most bicycles use angular-contact bearings in the headsets because the forces on these bearings are in both the radial and axial direction.
