Self-aligning ball bearings are designed to accommodate angular misalignment between shafts and housing while still maintaining smooth operation. The fundamental design comprises two rows of balls, enabling them to operate with lower frictional resistance compared to other bearing types, resulting in reduced energy consumption and heat generation. The curvature of the inner and outer rings allows for the absorption of misalignment-induced stresses, enhancing the bearing’s longevity and reliability.
