Deep grooves are the most commonly used bearing class and are especially versatile. They are highly optimized for low vibration and high friction which allows high rotational speeds and minimal noise which allows high productivity. They also accommodate axial and radial loads in both directions, are very simple to install, and require little maintenance than other bearing classes. The grooves are made either by machining or special equipment and can be found on most of the shafts in use today. They are often machined in a CNC or machine shop.

There are many different ball bearing designs and each one exhibits its own benefits and drawbacks. A deep grooved ball bearing has a high rotation speed with low torque which allows it to be used in applications requiring extremely high speeds and high torque. They are also used on high-speed electric engines because they reduce engine wear and tear. This reduces the overall lifespan of the engine and improves the engine's performance.

Another advantage of deep groove ball bearings is that they are self-aligning. This means that the rolling surface of the shaft is tightly aligned with the center of gravity of the shaft. Self-aligning rolling bearings require much less lubrication than standard bearings and do not suffer from under-lubrication problems like other bearings. They also have much higher rolling strengths and are stronger than other bearing designs. However, they are limited by the type of mating that they can work with and typically cannot handle larger diameter or longer shaft lengths.

Another advantage of these types of bearings is that they provide a much smoother and quieter operation than other types of bearings. This is because the depth of groove in a single-row deep groove ball bearing is much smaller than that of other designs. In a two-row bearing configuration, the depth of the groove is greater. The result is that the sound of a two-row deep groove ball bearing is quieter than that of a single-row deep groove ball bearing. Many raceways are built with these bearings because they make a difference in the smoothness and quietness of the race.

They also allow for greater thrust loads because they are more rigid. The rigidity gives the shaft more lift and greater thrust to keep the motor running smoothly. In racing, a shaft that has been supplied with a higher degree of thrust capability allows the driver to place more power in a corner and improve their speed. For example, a single or double row bearing set up in a straight wall helps improve cornering and acceleration.

These bearings work in a wide variety of applications and can even be made in customized sizes for more precise fitment and performance. They are especially used in jet engines, as well as in propellers and aircraft engines. Deep grooves allow for a larger amount of lubrication. This allows for a more efficient and longer lasting valve or oil seal. Deep grooved ball bearings have an advantage over conventional sealed bearings in that the smaller surface area of the bearings allows them to be placed closer to the center of gravity for greater reliability and lower drag.
