Self-aligning ball bearings, as the name implies, are shaped to have an alignment function.
The inner diameter is spherical, so even if the axis is tilted, it moves with the tilt and can be rotated with little force.
For example, the bearings can be used:
- When it is difficult to align the shaft with the housing
- When the shaft becomes long and deflected
- When you want the axis to move freely
Plastic bearings can be used safely in situations where aligning functions are required and where no lubrication is desired or chemicals are used.
＜Features of plastic bearings＞
- Water resistance
- Chemical resistance
In the case of plastic bearings, if there is a misalignment, deep groove bearings will have a short life due to the unbalanced load.
In such cases, aligning bearings can absorb the misalignment and extend the service life.

Plastic bearings are used in a wide variety of applications due to their superior characteristics not found in metal bearings.
