Axial spherical plain bearings
Axial spherical plain bearings comprise shaft locating and housing locating washers with steel/steel sliding contact surfaces, can support axial forces and transmit support forces with low moment levels into the adjacent construction.
Plain bearing and rod end designs that require maintenance with steel/steel and steel/bronze material pairs are easy to maintain, cost effective, and excellently suited to alternating loads. Plain bushes, washers, and strips employ the low-maintenance metal-polymer composite E50. The sliding layer features lubricant pockets, which means that an initial lubrication is sufficient in most cases.
