Many applications require bearings that are suitable for oscillating movements and that can accommodate misalignment which is why spherical plain bearings are a perfit fit for these applications. Rod ends and bushings provide an economical solution to these challenges.
Spherical plain bearings such as rod ends and bushings are produced in various designs and with different sliding contact surface combinations. Each design and combination has characteristic properties which makes it particularly suitable for certain applications.
Types of spherical plain bearings:
