One-way ball bearing is also referred as single row ball bearing and an important kind of ball bearing which tends to have lower load capacity for their size than other kinds of rolling-element bearings due to the smaller contact area between the balls and races.
In addition, one-way ball bearing is also a type of rolling-element bearing which uses balls to maintain the separation between the moving parts of the bearing. It is used in various applications. They are commonly used in machinery industry and in wheels of vehicles like cars, buses and motorcycles. The life span of ball bearings is calculated on their working speed and the load they bear. Generally, ball bearings can last a long time, but the actual lifespan should be based on the usage, the pressure they get, and the maintenance measures.
At last, one-way ball bearing has inner and outer ring. It is characterized by high performance and increased functionality. Therefore, it is widely used in automobile industry.
