# What type of bearing used in swivel arm?

To model a swivel arm on column that rotates by hand What type of bearing should i use Should it support radial and axial load or just supporting axial load is enough ?

• Use a bearing capable of supporting all the loads applied - first define those loads. Feb 16, 2019 at 10:26
• It probably needs to support some moments, as well as forces. Feb 16, 2019 at 11:11
• Ok can i use a pair of deep groove ball bearing and thrust ball bearing ? Feb 16, 2019 at 11:55
• What direction is the thrust? Feb 16, 2019 at 12:50
• Thrust direction is down cause i want to hang a 9kg mass from the end of the tube at the right . Feb 16, 2019 at 13:52

you have both: $$M= 9kg*L+ lever\ weight*L/2$$
$$P = 9 + Lever\ weight$$
