Cylindrical Roller Bearings vs Crossed Roller Bearings: How to Choose the Right Bearing for Your Application

Cylindrical Roller Bearings

Cylindrical Roller Bearings and Crossed Roller Bearings are two types of rotary bearings that use cylindrical rollers to support radial and axial loads. They differ in how the rollers are arranged and how they handle complex loads from different directions.

Cylindrical Roller Bearings have their rollers aligned parallel to each other along the length of the bearing. They can be designed with different numbers of roller rows, flange configurations, cage materials and sizes. They are often used for applications that require high speeds and heavy loads, such as power generation and metal recycling.

Crossed Roller Bearings have their rollers alternately crossed at right angles to each other between the inner and outer rings. They have a 90° V-shaped raceway on both rings that allows them to handle loads from any direction simultaneously. They are compact and rigid bearings that can be used for applications that require high precision and low friction, such as robotics and machine tools.

Both types of bearings have advantages and disadvantages depending on the specific application requirements. Cylindrical Roller Bearings can accommodate more rollers than Crossed Roller Bearings, which means they can support higher radial loads. However, they also have higher friction and lower rigidity than Crossed Roller Bearings, which means they are less suitable for complex loads and high accuracy. Crossed Roller Bearings can support higher axial loads than Cylindrical Roller Bearings, but they also have lower speed limits and higher cost.

Therefore, when choosing between Cylindrical Roller Bearing and Crossed Roller Bearing, one should consider factors such as load direction, speed, accuracy, rigidity, space availability and budget.
