Needle Roller Thrust Washers
Thrust Washers that we will supply come in 3 main types, WS, AS and GS, pleased see the explanation for each below.
- AS - Pressed Steel Ring, Because of its 1mm thick steel plate ring, this thrust bearing needs adequate rigidity and profile accuracy of machine parts adjacent to the bearing. As an individual, on occasion, this thrust bearing results in slight camber, but it is flattened when specific thrust load acts thereon, having no problem in practical use.
- WS - Machined type for the inner ring, higher rigidity and higher running accuracy than AS bearing ring.
- GS - Machined type for the outer ring, Higher rigidity and higher running accuracy than AS bearing ring.
