Tapered rollers are used as rolling elements in tapered roller bearings. These bearings are selected when the bearing must provide load carrying capability in both radial and axial directions.
Tapered rollers are blanked (given their rough overall shape) using a cold-heading process. Several subsequent operations including specialized grinding produce parts with precision tolerances. Bearing grade chrome steel is generally selected as the material because of its wide availability plus its high mechanical properties (tensile strength, hardness, wear resistance). Hartford Technologies provides custom sizes of tapered rollers (diameters, length, angle).
