Q3.What is a Spherical Bearing?

A "spherical bearing", as the name implies, is a bearing that is composed of a raceways that are rounded (spherical) on the inside axially (in addition to the normal radial curvature of course).  However, there are many different types of spherical bearings including:

  • Spherical ball bearings (a.k.a. double-row, self-aligning ball bearings)
  • Spherical roller bearings (a.k.a. double-row, self-aligning roller bearings)
  • Spherical plain bearings (a.k.a. ball busings)
  • Rod ends (a.k.a. spherical rod end bearings)
