Self-aligning ball bearings generate less friction than other styles of bearings, which allows them to run at higher speeds without building up as much heat. As a result, self-aligning ball bearings are more suitable for low- to medium-sized loads.
Other features include:
A double row design
Designs that can include a cylindrical bore or tapered bore
An option to be mounted with an adapter sleeve if the bearing has a tapered bore
Given the benefits of the self-aligning ball bearing, there are several industries that can use them, including:
If you’re dealing with issues like misalignment in your applications, it can be difficult to operate efficiently. Self-aligning ball bearings can help you with those problems.
