Thin Section Ball Bearings
Thin Section Ball Bearings were developed for applications where space limitations are of the utmost importance. As the name
implies, the difference between the inside and outside diameters of the rings has been minimized or thinned out. Of course this
comes at a price by compromising load capacities. However, these bearings can still accommodate a relatively light radial thrust
or combined loads.
BMZ has nearly 300 different models of thin section ball bearings organized into the following numerical series:
Inch dimensional series with bore sizes ranging from 3/8” to 1-5/8”
– Metric dimensional series for very limited space applications and very light loads
– Metric dimensional series for limited space applications and light loads
– A hybrid between the 6800 and 6900 Series with the load capacities of the 6800 series but the
width of the 6900 series.
– Metric dimensional series for limited space applications and heavier loads
