Features of Self-aligning ball bearings
Sep 13, 2018

The main features of Self-aligning ball bearings are as following:

  • Provided with two rows of ball bearings with spherical orbital path on the outer ring

  • Their design allows mutual tilting of rings (approx. 2-3°, depending on the design)

  • Suitable, above all, for seating, where the shaft shows deflections or misalignment may occur

  • Load rating of these bearings is lower than with single-row ball bearings of the same size; not suitable for retaining larger axial forces

  • Produced usually with cylindrical or tapered holes

  • Delivered also with seals
