Double row angular contact ball bearings are units with solid inner and outer rings and ball and cage assemblies with polyamide, sheet steel or brass cages. Their construction is similar to a pair of single row angular contact ball bearings in an O arrangement but they are narrower to a certain extent. They differ in the size of the contact angle and the design of the bearing rings.
The bearings are available in open and sealed designs. Due to the manufacturing processes used, open bearings can have turned recesses in the outer ring for seals or shields. Sealed bearings are maintenance-free and therefore allow particularly economical bearing arrangements.
The angular adjustment facility of the angular contact ball bearings is very limited.
