Ball bearings are utilized in virtually almost every industrial and agricultural application in the world. Ball bearings have been around since 1869 and have since increased in load ratings, precision, and performance. The best ball bearings reduce the most friction, just as a radial ball bearing does through the utilization of a roller element that uses balls to separate races. This allows rotation on the axis, and typically the ball bearings can support a radial load. The rolling action of the balls is what creates the low friction and, therefore, the ease with which they roll. Steel ball bearings are the most common type sold; the types of bearings that utilize steel balls are (non-inclusively) deep groove, self-aligning, angular contact, thrust, insert, thin section, angular contact thrust and miniature.
