The right ball bearing for all areas
In many applications in mechanical engineering and parts production, components are required that connect fixed and moving elements and components with each other. Whether radial or axial loads, bearings are required wherever rotary movements occur.
Ball bearings in all variants
There are many different types and specifications of bearings. Ball bearing is one of the most common terms in this field. Ball bearing has become a generic term for various types of bearings, such as spherical roller bearings, cylindrical roller bearings, needle roller bearings, track rollers, spindle bearings etc. A ball bearing is a sub-type of the actual generic term rolling bearing.
We briefly present the various solution options for your individual requirements on this page so that you can immediately recognise which bearing type is the right choice for your requirements.
So that you immediately have all the important information for your selection together, you will find information and tips on the questions most frequently asked by our customers directly on this page!
Ball bearing from FUD
Bearings are constructed in such a way that an inner ring and an outer ring are each firmly connected to one of the components to be connected. In order to enable the two components to move with as little resistance as possible, there are moving elements between these two fixed rings that enable the movement.
In a ball bearing, the balls are held by a rolling bearing cage and therefore enable the movement. To reduce friction, there are various lubrication options, such as special rolling bearing greases and rolling bearing oils. The use of roller bearing cages can also be dispensed with in order to increase the load ratings.
The use of a high-quality ball bearing significantly reduces the rotational resistance and thus the wear and heat generation. This increases the efficiency and longevity of a component with a high-quality ball bearing.
Always ask our technical advisors for the ideal solution for your individual requirements, because it is not always guaranteed that the ball bearing you want to replace already represents the optimum selection.
In addition to standard and universal bearings, e.g. in sizes from 8 mm to 7 metres inside diameter, we offer ball bearings in almost every technically feasible size. We are also very experienced in individual project planning in order to manufacture ball bearings specifically according to your parameters.
In addition to the well-known brand bearings, also check ball bearings of our own brand FUD.
When selecting ball bearings, but also other bearing types, it is a matter of factors such as:
- Dimensions of the attachments
- the maximum and minimum rotation
- the load ratings acting statically and dynamically on the ball bearing
- the axial and/or radial load
- the environmental conditions, e.g. temperature, dirt, dust, vapours, etc., in which the ball bearing is to operate.
There are many other factors, such as vibrations. We will be happy to advise you!
All these individual factors in the right coordination are selected with the aim of ensuring that the installed ball bearing is suitable for the application and thus achieves the longest possible service life.
Because from our experience with our customers, the longevity of the ball bearings we supply is a particular focus.
Industries of our customers
Basically, the requirements under which a ball bearing or another rolling bearing must function are very different. It is therefore difficult to make a general statement about which bearing is best for your application.

Experience pays off - buy ball bearings from an experienced expert
Time and again, interested parties ask us whether we have experience with ball bearings or other bearing types in their specific area. You will be reassured to hear our expert advisors report on similar requirements and projects from a wide range of specialist areas. Because in our 70-year history, many well-known manufacturers have already purchased bearings from FUD.
Here you can get a brief overview of the industries and sectors in which we have maintained successful business relationships over many years with companies that buy their ball bearings from FUD again and again.
We supply all well-known brands, such as FUD, NSK, SKF, FAG, INA, etc. Many customers want to use alternatives to well-known brand manufacturers. For the well-known brands and for our own brand we are a recognized supplier for our customers. We have many product groups in stock at any time in our central warehouse in Sprockhövel, so that a fast delivery is prepared.
Yes, both the ball bearings of large and well-known manufacturers and products of our own brand FUD are manufactured according to DIN and are equipped with a consistent quality. This means that you have at least the same material quality and fitting accuracy with ball bearings of our own brand.
For you, this means that in the course of the consultation process for your enquiry, we can also offer you solutions from our own brand in addition to products from well-known manufacturers.
Manufacturing according to your requirements
Due to the complexity of the requirements for ball bearings in terms of dimensions, load and many other influencing factors, there are already a large number of standard bearings that we have ready for you.
From small individualisations to changes in materials and dimensions to complete new developments of ball bearings or entire assemblies.
Nevertheless, there are always requests whose requirements are not met by a standard bearing. In these cases, we analyse your needs individually and configure the ideal ball bearing for you. The possibilities start with a small individualisation, such as changing the oil in which the rollers run, to changing the materials and dimensions, to a completely new development of a ball bearing or directly the entire assembly.
Important objectives of such customisation can arise if, for example, the particularly high speeds, load capacities and/or difficult installation/environmental conditions are present.
Just like the individualisation of a bearing itself, we also develop components for your individual requirements in which, for example, ball bearings are part of the assembly.
