Spherical Plain Bearings Tackle Tough Applications


Spherical Plain Bearings serve in applications such as Off-Highway Vehicles, Agricultural and Mining Equipment, and Robotics.

Five basic types of bearings are offered:

  1. Standard Radial heavy radial and thrust loading, designed to accommodate misalignment.
    Features: Heavy radial Loading, Accomodates midalignment, thrust loading, and Non-separable.
  2. Extended Inner Ring designed to eliminate locational spacers.
    Features: Eliminates locational spacers.
  3. High Misalignment features a cross section specifically to accommodate greater misalignment.
    Features: Heavy cross section, Accomodates greater misalignment.
  4. Angular Contact for unidirectional thrust and combination loads.
    Features: Single acting-for unidirectional thrust and combination loads.
  5. Self-lubricated low maintenance with Teflon, dry film, or injection molded polymer lubrication.
    Features: Teflon, dry film or injection molded polymer lubrication for low maintenance.

Standard features include fractured, sold or two-piece outer rings, two or three-piece metal-to-metal constructions, open or sealed versions and maintenance free lining. Available in sizes 0.5-12 inch and 4-300 Metric. Custom sizes are available.
