Axial needle roller bearings AXW comprise a housing locating washer with a centring spigot into which an axial needle roller and cage assembly AXK is inserted. With the aid of the centring spigot, the housing locating washer can be precisely centred in the housing bore. This gives easier mounting of the bearings.
SKF drawn cup needle roller bearings have a deep drawn, thin-walled outer ring. Drawn cup needle roller bearings are typically used in applications where the housing bore cannot be used as a raceway for a needle roller and cage assembly, but where a very compact and economical bearing arrangement is required.
