The Bearing Helps Reduce Friction

The bearing is another fundamental machine element that has come to define mechanical engineering. These devices allow the constraint of relative motion in one direction or plane whilst simultaneously reducing friction between moving parts. 

Bearings come in many shapes and sizes and range from components holding shafts or axles in place (plain bearing) to more complex systems like ball bearings.
Modern-day sophisticated bearings often demand the highest level of precision and quality in manufacturing.
