Thrust Ball Bearings are manufactured as single and double direction models. Ball bearings of the series 511, 512, 513 and 514 are single sided, the models 522, 523 and 524 are double sided.
Thrust Ball Bearings are composed of shaft washers, cage washers, and cage assemblies. The bearings are separable; cage assembly and bearing washers can therefore be fitted independently of each other. Both models tolerate high axial forces, however, they may not be radially stressed.
