Angular contact spherical plain bearings

Angular contact spherical plain bearings
As their name implies, the sliding contact surfaces of angular contact spherical plain bearings (table 1) are spherical in shape and inclined at an angle to the bearing axis (fig. 1). Consequently, these bearings are well suited for accommodating combined (radial and axial) loads. Single angular contact spherical plain bearings can only accommodate axial loads acting in one direction. These bearings can be separated, enabling the rings to be mounted separately.
SKF manufactures steel/PTFE FRP (fibre reinforced polymer containing PTFE) maintenance-free angular contact spherical plain bearings as standard. Designs with other sliding surface combinations are available on request (Special designs).
