SKF AMPEP self-lubricating spherical plain bearings


AMPEP self-lubricating spherical plain bearings are excellent solutions when bearing pressures are high, movement slow and maintenance is difficult or even impossible. They provide a low coefficient of friction combined with low wear rates, achieved with the use of woven polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and glass liners.

Benefits include:

  • Low friction and wear, minimal stick slip
  • Low life cycle cost
  • Excellent for oscillatory applications
  • Virtually maintenance-free, self lubricating
  • Wide operating temperature range, from –50 up to +200 °C
