Self-Aligning Ball Bearings
Self-aligning ball bearings are constructed with an inner ring and ball assembly contained within an outer ring that has a spherical raceway. Due to the spherical outer ring raceway they have excellent alignment compensation and are suitable for low to medium radial loads and low thrust loads. They are available in open and sealed versions, as well as in tapered and parallel bore. Common applications include agricultural machinery, textile machinery and pumps.
