Description

Bearings can be classified as slide bearings or roller bearings depending on the nature
of their motion. In slide bearings, there is a sliding motion between the bearing and the
supported component. In roller bearings, there is both sliding motion and rolling motion
between rolling bodies and the supported component. Sliding motion is undesirable in
roller bearings, e.g. between rolling body and cage. The bearing force is transferred in
the roller bearing by means of rolling.
