Angular contact ball bearings have raceways in the inner and outer rings that are displaced with respect to each other in the direction of the bearing axis, so that they can accommodate combined loads, i.e. simultaneously acting radial and axial loads. These bearings better support \"combined loads\" (loading in both the radial and axial directions) and the contact angle of the bearing should be matched to the relative proportions of each. The larger the contact angle, the higher the axial load supported, but the lower the radial road. They are generally used in pairs, triplex sets, quadruplex sets, or multiplex sets since an axial component is generated when a radial load is applied.
