Bearings that are mounted within a flanged housing are used when the bearing mounting surface is perpendicular to a shaft axis. They are commonly available in two, three, or four-hole configurations. Miniature Two-bolt flanged ball bearing units are commonly called "Flangettes" and have a diamond or winged-shape with 2 holes for mounting. Unlike the larger two-bolt flanges, flangettes housings are typically made from pressed steel since they typically do not need to handle high loads. As with our 2-bolt, 3-bolt and 4-Bolt Flanged Bearing Units, our Flangettes have bearings that can be moved and aligned to better accomodate long shafts.
Various 2-Bolt Flanged Bearings Series for Different Sized Shafts
AST's Flangette Series is available only in inch dimensions and can accomodate standard shaft sizes from 3/16" to 1/2". For larger shafts (either 1/2" to 3-1/2" or 12 mm to 90 mm shaft diameters), please see our "Two-Bolt Flanges." Other types of 2-bolt flange ball bearings can be special ordered to meet your specific requirements. If you don't see it in our catalog, just ask us for it.
