Miniature thrust bearings with flat washers for shaft sizes from 2mm to 10mm.
Miniature thrust bearings (or axial bearings) are available with bore sizes as small as 2mm. Miniature thrust bearings are normally supplied in SAE52100 chrome steel with brass retainers but can also be manufactured in stainless steel (possibly subject to minimum requirements).
Miniature thrust bearings can withstand axial or thrust loads only. The miniature thrust bearings in the table below can take thrust loads in both directions but will take smaller loads than the grooved washer type.
For single direction thrust bearings for heavier loads, please click the Grooved Washers tab.
