Ball Bearing


A friction-reducing device for carrying a shaft in its housing when speeds are low and no continuous lubrication is available. It consists of an inner race fixed to the shaft and an outer race fixed to the housing. A number of balls, often fitted in a locating cage to prevent them touching one another, are introduced between the races.
