Self-aligning ball bearings

Sealed Self-aligning ball bearing
Self-aligning ball bearings have two rows of balls and a common sphered raceway in the outer ring. The bearings are insensitive to angular misalignment of the shaft relative to the housing.

Self-aligning ball bearings generate less friction than any other type of rolling bearing, which enables them to run cooler even at high speeds.
SKF self-aligning ball bearings are available in several designs, including:
  • basic design bearings (fig. 1)
  • bearings with an extended inner ring (fig. 2)
  • sealed bearings (fig. 3)
