Ball bearings help to reduce friction in your 3D printer, mostly used in combination with timing belt
These ball bearings are suitable for both radial and axial movements at high speeds. Because of the shielding of the bearing, both the balls as well as the lubrication is well contained improving the durability and lifetime. Typical applications for these bearings include:
Keeping (Z-axis) lead-screws in place
Support and guide motion of timing belts systems
Reduce rotational friction (e.g. in cold ends)
This bearing has a flange, making it even more suitable for timing belt applications
