The MRC brand self-aligning ball bearings provide solutions for rotating machinery applications where misalignment may occur due to mounting errors or shaft deflection. Designed for high-speed applications that require greater running accuracy, such as fans, blowers and conveyor equipment, the bearings’ self-alignment function features two rows of balls with a common sphere raceway in the outer ring, which provides lower friction and temperature. Available with cylindrical or tapered bores in diameters ranging from 5 to 130 millimeter, users choose between open or sealed types and various cage materials such as polyamide, machined brass or pressed steel.
