What are spherical plain bearings?

Spherical Plain Bearings offer self aligning capabilities at relatively low speeds; they can accommodate heavy static loads as well as forces that occur during oscillating, recurring tilting or slewing movements. Shaft misalignment or deformation of surrounding components does not affect the spherical plain bearings performance making the spherical plain bearing very reliable even under demanding conditions.

The three types of spherical plain bearings available are:

  • Radial spherical plain bearings
  • Angular contact spherical plain bearings
  • Spherical plain thrust bearings
