Self-aligning ball bearing made of polymer

Patrick Czaja | 4. May 2021

Self-aligning ball bearings (DIN 630) are double-row rolling bearings, consisting of an inner ring with a common ball raceway and an outer ring characterised by a hollow spherical design. Due to the hollow shape of the outer ring and the resulting angular mobility, self-aligning ball bearings are used in applications with larger misalignments, shaft deflections […]
