The thrust bearings are bearings designed to take axial loads. They can use both spherical and cylindrical rolling bodies. Single row thrust bearings are used for unilateral axial loads, and double row thrust bearings can be used where forces act on the part on two sides. The ball bearings of this type have a lower load capacity, but they can be used at high rotational speeds. The roller thrust bearings are relatively slow-running, but they withstand high loads. The manufacturers also produce spherical parts of this type, which help to compensate for shaft skews.
