Deep groove ball bearings with annular groove in the outer ring simplify the design in many cases because they can be fixed simply by a snap ring and axially in the housing to save space. These bearings with or without snap ring are available only on request.
Single-row deep groove ball bearings accept radial and axial forces and can thus be used in a wide range of applications. They have a simple design, are self-retaining, suitable for high up to very high speeds and resistant in operation and during maintenance and they are offered at a very favorable price. Due to these characteristics, self-aligning deep groove ball bearings are the anti-friction bearings which are used most.
