Reliance is an authorised distributor for some of the world’s major bearing manufacturers such as FAG, INA, NSK, TIMKEN, KML and many more. Reliance hold stock of a wide range of bearings in our 3 locations in Ireland. If your required bearing is not a stock item, Reliance can assist you with fast procurement of difficult to source bearings.
Ball and Roller Bearings
Reliance stock a large range of ball and roller bearings including;
Angular Contact Ball Bearings -Angular Contact Ball Bearings are designed to handle both radial and axial loading, and are specifically engineered for use in high-speed and high precision applications.
Available in single row and double row designs with solid inner and outer rings and ball and cage assemblies with polyamide, sheet steel or brass cages. Open and sealed versions available. Click here for more information on FAG Angular Contact Bearings
Barrel Roller -Single row, self-aligning roller bearings. They comprise solid outer rings with a concave raceway, solid inner rings with two ribs and a cylindrical or tapered bore and barrel rollers with cages. The bearings cannot be dismantled.

Cylindrical Roller Ball Bearings – Cylindrical bearings provide the highest possible radial load capacity compared to other roller bearing types. The most common variants of cylindrical rollers are;
- Cylindrical Roller Bearing with cages Single row cylindrical roller bearings with cage are units comprising solid inner and outer rings together with cylindrical roller and cage assemblies. The outer rings have rigid ribs on both sides or are without ribs, the inner rings have one or two rigid ribs or are designed without ribs. The cage prevents the cylindrical rollers coming into contact with each other during rolling. Click here for more information on FAG Cylindrical Roller Bearings with cages
- Full complement cylindrical roller bearings have solid inner and outer rings and rib-guided cylindrical rollers. Since these bearings have the largest possible number of rolling elements, they have extremely high radial load carrying capacity, high rigidity and are suitable for particularly compact designs.

Deep Groove Ball Bearings -Deep groove ball bearings are versatile, self-retaining bearings with solid outer rings, inner rings and ball and cage assemblies.
These products are of simple design, durable in operation and easy to maintain; they are available in single and double row designs and and in open and sealed variants. Click here for more information on Deep Groove Ball Bearings
Needle Roller and Cage– Needle roller and cage assemblies are single or double row units comprising cages and needle rollers.
Since their radial section is no greater than the diameter of the needle rollers, needle roller and cage assemblies allow bearing arrangements with a very small radial design envelope to be achieved. They have very high load carrying capacity, are suitable for high speeds and can be easily fitted. Click here for more information on Needle roller and cage assemblies
Rod Ends– Available in a wide range of designs and materials to suit light to heavy duty mechanical applications, requiring low friction and good wear resistance. Male and female rod end bearings are available with either metric or imperial threads and bore sizes, right or left handed threads and with threaded studs. We offer a wide choice of bearing liners, including GR-nylon, polyurethane, bronze and PTFE offering maintenance free options, suitable for high precision motion transfer applications and extended life. Metric rod end bearings are based on DIN 648 specifications and imperial rod ends are based on SAE J1120 specification. Click here for more information on Dunlop Rod Ends
Self Aligning – Self-aligning ball bearings are double row, self-retaining units comprising solid outer rings with a concave raceway, inner rings with a cylindrical or tapered bore and ball and cage assemblies. The bearings are available in open and sealed versions. Click here for more information on INA Self Aligning bearings
Spindle Bearings – Single row angular contact ball bearings comprising solid inner and outer rings and ball and cage assemblies with solid window cages. They cannot be dismantled. The bearings are available in open and sealed versions. Click here for more information on INA Spindle Bearings
Spherical Plain Bearings – Available in a wide range of designs and materials, we offer a wide choice of bearing liners, GR-nylon, polyurethane, bronze and PTFE to suit light to heavy duty industrial/mechanical applications, requiring low friction and good wear resistance.

Spherical Roller -Double row, self-retaining units comprising solid outer rings with a concave raceway, solid inner rings and barrel rollers with cages. The inner rings with cylindrical or tapered bores. The symmetrical barrel rollers freely align themselves to the concave outer ring raceway. As a result, shaft deflections and mislignments of the bearing seats are compensated. Click here for more information on FAG Spherical Roller bearings
Tapered Roller – Support axial loads from one direction and high radial loads. The arrangement consists of solid inner and outer rings with tapered rollers with cages. Taper roller bearings are not self supporting and are normally axially adjusted against a second bearing fitted in a mirror image arrangement. Bearings manufactured from special material can be offered for use under extreme conditions. Click here for more information on FAG Tapered Roller Bearings
