GGB Bearing Technology EXALIGN™, MINI and UNI self-aligning bearing assemblies compensate for shaft misalignment up to +/- 5º, reducing edge-load, premature wear and power transfer deficiencies.
Available in a range of configurations to meet most bearing assembly needs, these housings are compatible with a wide range of GGB plain bearings, simplifying installation and increasing service life.
The self-aligning sphericals are secured against distortion, and combined with different housings and GGB bearings, provide optimal design solutions for a wide range of applications.
The product line includes standard ranges:
These housings will most frequently be used with GGB’s line of metal-polymer and fiber reinforced composite bearings in applications including:
“Misalignment can cause shaft binding and edge loads that reduce bearing life and performance,” said Ümüt Elitok, Product Manager. “These high-stress contact points can cause premature wear on the bearing, negatively impacting the efficiency of related equipment and processes. GGB’s self-aligning bearing assemblies adapt to angular misalignment of a shaft, automatically micro-adjusting to movements. This reduces torque and friction, offering greater reliability, longer service life and lower cost of ownership. The addition of these self-aligning housings to the GGB family of products gives our customers a suite of optimized solutions for challenging operating conditions.”
