Flange Bearing Unit

Flange Bearing Units

Mount bearings for specialized applications with precision flange units. As a leading roller bearing supplier, our team at Baker Bearing Company can assist you in sourcing these specialized bearings to repair your equipment or fulfill your manufacturing requirements. Review the specifications, benefits, and industry applications of these bearings today before exploring our extensive catalog of over 6 million parts.

Flange Unit Specifications

Flange unit bearings are manufactured with a lip or extension around the bearing to allow for mounting to equipment. This secures the outer bearing ring to ensure proper positioning, particularly in delicate applications. Once installed, the bearing can rotate and carry a load with minimal friction. While your ball bearings supplier can help you explore the many different flange unit specifications available, here are some basic parameters of typical options:

  • Size: Between 1/2 inch and 3 inches in diameter
  • Materials: Typically M50 tool steel, 52100 chrome steel, or 440C stainless steel

The material used affects the lifetime, heat resistance, weight, cost, and other factors of the bearing. If you don’t know which alloy best fits your industry application, reach out to our team at Baker Bearing Company to find an exact replacement or for a bulk order to fulfill your manufacturing requirements.

Types of Flange Unit Bearings

In addition to various size and material options, flange units are also available in different shapes to work in space-restricted applications. Consider one of these flange types for your manufacturing needs:

  • Round
  • Square
  • Diamond-shaped
  • Pillow

Benefits of Using Flange Units

Traditional ball bearings from your roller bearing supplier generally rely on close housing tolerances to secure the bearing and prevent axial movements. This requires precision manufacturing, as even small inconsistencies in the housing can negatively affect the bearing operation. Flange units reduce this risk by securing the bearing directly to the equipment to prevent axial movement.

Flange units can also protect against thermal expansion. When housings warp or adjust due to thermal expansion, it can cause excessive wear or failure of other breaking types.

Industries That Utilize Flange Unit Bearings

From elevators to packaging systems, there are many applications for flange units in a variety of bearings. Explore industries where these components are common before reaching out to a bearing distributor:
