Spherical thrust bearing, SAM, igubal®
igubal® spherical thrust bearings
The self-adjusting igubal® spherical thrust bearings are units that are very easy to assemble, and help to compensate for misalignments and avoid edge pressure. The housing pad is made of the impact-resistant, thermoplastic composite igumid® G. The spherical washer is made of iglidur® W300 material. This combination results in particularly good friction and wear characteristics during relative movements.
- Easy installation
- Compensation of misalignment
- Compensation of edge loads
- Very good friction and wear properties
|When to use it?
|When not to use it?
The load capacity of the igubal® spherical thrust bearings is very high at normal ambient temperatures. For high continuous loads and high temperatures, the load capacity of the thrust bearings should be tested in an experiment that simulates the application.Assembly
The housing pad is recessed and secured. The spherical washer is loosely fitted in the socket and is held in place by the shaft that is placed into the bearing.
