Durable and reliable parts
World's first rust-resistant forklift bearing
Rigorous inspections at all key stages of manufacturing using advanced testing equipment assure you of the highest standards of quality in Mast Guide Roller Bearings for forklifts.
What is a bearing and a wheel bearing?
A bearing is a set of steel balls held together by metal rings. Used in all kinds of vehicles, they help wheels spin fast with as little friction as possible. On a car, a wheel bearing rides on a metal ring that fits tightly inside the hub at the centre of the wheel.
Innovation in quality bearing production
Gaido’s reputation is built on innovation and quality in wheel bearing design and manufacture. All car spare part are produced under strict quality control.
Our anti-rust technology ensures reliability and long service life in the roller bearings delivered to you.
Hub 1, Hub 2 and Hub 3 bearing
The hub unit bearings of automobile wheels comprise the bearing rings, rolling elements, and cages. These components are generally similar to those in general-purpose rolling bearings. The first-generation hub unit (Hub 1), second-generation hub unit (Hub 2), and third-generation hub unit (Hub 3) differ in the integration of the bearings and their location depending on whether the wheels are driven or not driven.
Type of bearings
1. Ball Bearings: These bearings can handle both radial and thrust loads, and are usually found in applications where the load is relatively small and allows very smooth spinning.
2. Roller Bearings: These bearings are used in applications like conveyer belt rollers. They are more suitable for heavy radial loads than can be handled by ball bearings.
3. Ball Thrust Bearings: These are used for low-speed applications without excessive radial loads.
4. Roller Thrust Bearings: They are often found in gearsets. The helical gears used in most transmissions have angled teeth which generate a thrust load that must be supported by bearings.
5. Tapered Roller Bearings: These bearings can support large radial and large thrust loads. They are usually mounted in pairs for use in car hubs.
