Bearings are consist of rolling elements, inner and outer races. There are several types of bearings such as ball and roller bearings, linear bearings, rolling element bearings and plain bearings. Ball bearings have a lower load compare to spherical rolling, and cylindrical elements have high capacity; linear bearings used at linear movements. Mounted bearings pre-assembled and bolted to frames, stanchions and used to support the ends of shafts: sleeve bearings, journal bearings, and other fluid-film bearings classified as Bushings family.

Tapered roller bearing used to accommodate higher thrust loads in addition to the radial loads, Spherical roller bearings like are standardized ball bearings, albeit to a lesser degree.
