How to identify the model number (product name) of a plastic bearing
In case you need to identify the name of bearing which is made by TOK, you can use the identify method below.
If you have a bearing that has different part configration from Step 0, please contact us via contact form.
TOK will provide you the product name.

Step 0 : Components of bearing
           You can proceed the next step if the bearing you have is the same parts composition.
Step1 : Identify the shape of the outer race and measure the dimensions of ①.
Step 2 : Check the kind of inner race and measure the dimensions of ②.
Estimate method for dimension②
The dimensions of ② can be calculated approximately by the "inner race width - outer race width" shown in the following figure.

Using a caliper or ruler, measure the two areas shown in the figure and calculate.
In the case of the following figure, the inner race width is 8.87mm and the outer race width is 6.84mm.
Since "8.87mm - 6.84mm = 2.03mm," we can estimate that ② is 2mm.

Step 3 : Apply the information you checked in Step 1 and Step 2 to the product name.
         You can identify the product by applying the shapes and dimensions you checked in step 1 and 2.

 (1) Additional information 
     The following additional information may be added to the end of the product name. 
    "GN" means that the bearing has no grease.
    "JH" means that the inner race is the hexagon head screw type.

(2) Notes
 -The number on the side of outer race is the patent number and no related
to the product name.
 -Even though the shape of outer race is grooved, it may also have a "DR"
engraved mark on it. This is because DR series outer race is used and also
it is grooved the outer diameter.
