Self Aligning Ball Bearings
Self-aligning ball bearings are double row with inner ring raceways similar to a double row deep grove ball bearing whereas the outer ring features a common spherical raceway. The center of the spherical curvature coincides with the bearing center and therefore, are internally self aligning.
These bearings are suitable for applications where the shaft relative to the housing bore is prone to angular misalignments. Under normal loads, depending on the dimensional series, the maximum permissible angular misalignment is approximately 2 to 4 degrees.
The bearings are available in open and sealed versions and inner rings with a cylindrical or tapered bore.
AEC self aligning ball bearings are available in open and sealed variants in the following dimensional series:
Self Aligning Ball Bearings - Metric Series
Self Aligning Ball Bearings - Inch Series
AEC self aligning ball bearings are available in the following cage design and material depending on the bearing series and size:
