Spherical Bearings Supplier in Yorkshire

For spherical bearings, YB Components can supply you with whichever manufacturer brand and model is ideal for your application. Such spherical bearings are a special type of bearing, primarily used for connecting two non-concentric shafts. As a spherical bearings supplier, Yorkshire’s YB Components can guide you to the ideal model that will perfectly compensate for angular misalignment between two shafts.

Spherical bearings are especially useful as they are able to withstand significant axial loads and lateral forces while compensating for the angular misalignment. Let’s look closer at the structure and function of spherical bearings, as well as their most common applications.

Structure of Spherical Bearings

A spherical bearing consists of an inner bearing and an outer casing. The inner bearing is spherically shaped, designed with a ball-crown structure to receive and support the two ends of the connecting shafts. The spherical bearing’s outer casing features a spherical groove designed to secure the inner bearing, while providing mounting and connection options.

Function of Spherical Bearings

One of the main functions of the products available through your local spherical bearings supplier in Yorkshire is their ability to tilt and rotate across multiple axes. This enables the spherical bearing to maintain a smooth transmission  while compensating for angular misalignment between the two connected shafts.

This tilt and rotate function makes spherical bearings popular for use in transmission systems, especially the suspension and steering systems in vehicles, as well as any mechanical equipment that needs plenty of axial flexibility.

Applications of Spherical Bearings

Along with their popularity in automotive transmission and steering systems, spherical bearings are also commonly used in industrial and construction machinery, as well as agricultural equipment, ships and aircraft.

You will also find spherical bearings in components that require multiple-axis connection and transmission, such as thrust rods, connecting rods and drive shafts, as well as machinery in the robotics industry.
