Needle Bearing Axial Thrust Study 830568

This paper discusses the mechanics of axial forces generated by needle skew in full complement, continuous rotation needle bearings. Experimental measurements of the axial forces and observed needle skew angles are presented for single and double row bearings. Various mechanisms causing the needles to skew are discussed along with design modifications for eliminating or reducing the axial thrust.
