Self-Aligning Ball Bearings

Self-Aligning Ball Bearings
Self-aligning ball bearings are designed to accommodate misalignment between the shaft and the housing without causing undue stress on the bearing or reducing its operational efficiency. They consist of an inner and outer ring with double-row steel balls and a cage that separates and guides the balls. It can handle both radial and axial loads, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.

Features and benefits:
  • Self-alignment
  • High-speed capability
  • Low friction and low noise
  • Minimum maintenance

Q: What are the different types of self-aligning ball bearings available?

There are various types of self-aligning ball bearings, including open design, sealed, pre-greased, extended inner ring, adapter sleeve-mounted, withdrawal sleeve-mounted, split housing, and high-temperature bearings.

Q: Are self-aligning ball bearings suitable for harsh environments?

Yes, sealed and pre-greased self-aligning ball bearings are particularly suitable for harsh environments as they offer better protection against contaminants and require less maintenance.
