Self-aligning ball bearings are bearings that feature a unique design to accommodate shaft misalignment and reduce friction between the bearing rings. They are ideal for applications that require low speed and high accuracy, as well as applications where vibration, shock and overload conditions can occur. The bearing rings are fitted with radiation hardened steel balls, which eliminates the need for lubrication of the bearings. The self-aligning feature of these bearings prevents premature wear and minimizes abrasion on the bearing rings. Additionally, the increased lubrication interval offers advantages such as longer bearing life, improved reliability and higher efficiency. Self-aligning ball bearings are easy to install and offer cost-effective and reliable operation in a variety of applications.
