Ball bearings in popular metric sizes to fit shafts from 10mm to 30mm diameter.
SMB Bearings stock a range of metric radial ball bearings in the most popular small sizes, hence the term “popular metric bearings”. These popular metric ball bearings are available open, shielded or sealed and are manufactured from SAE52100 chrome steel. These bearings are designed to withstand heavy radial loads and moderate thrust loads in both directions. EZO only manufacture up to 6202 in chrome steel. For noise sensitive applications, we recommend using either EZO brand or our P6 low noise, electric motor grade bearings (click on the “Electric Motor” tab below for details).
For corrosive environments, we keep corrosion resistant alternatives to most of these sizes in stock.
