Plain Bearing-Forged for Self-Aligning Movements
Explore Plain Bearings from Emechmart, including Rod Ends and Bushings that meet your application needs, as well as offer high reliability, long service life and minimal maintenance.
The radial spherical plain bearings are used in many industries and in many applications where the challenge of oscillation speed and potential misalignment is required to be met in a cost-efficient and reliable manner. From mining and construction equipment and farm and forestry machinery to forklift trucks and solar power equipment. As partnered with the top spherical plain bearing manufacturers, our success is built on delivering products that deliver the highest standards, even in extreme conditions, in demanding industries.
In every field, engineers face challenges in designing and implementing their products. We work with our dealers to deliver market-leading Bearings and Tolerance Rings that are designed to help them meet these challenges efficiently and cost-effectively, and in millions of products worldwide, every day brings a big change.
Plain bearings have a wide range of uses and can be divided into radial bearings, spherical plain bearing, thrust bearings and linear bearings, depending on whether they deal with rotational or linear motion. Its alternative name, "sleeve bearing", gives you a better idea of the use and appearance of a plain bearing. The conventional symbol of plain bearing has sliding layers, and some of them are self-lubricating, providing smooth and reliable operation.
Plain bearings types available at Emechmart
Bearings facilitate movement while reducing friction. Engineers have two categories of bearings when choosing bearings: rolling bearings and plain bearings (also known as bushings). Most people know what a rolling bearing (or ball bearing) is, but the different plain bearing varieties are tricky.
The self-aligning plain bearing is simple in design, using metal or plastic formed into the desired shape. The plain bearing uses are sophisticated and consist of a conductive material (metal) and a polymer layer.
Spherical plain bearings and rod ends
Available in a wide assortment of designs, dimension ranges and sizes, either as separate standardized, ready-to-mount bearings or mounted in rod end housings used to join mechanical components. You can buy spherical plain bearing SKF, that offers durability and long-lasting performance.
Bushings, Thrust Washers and Strips
Consider the selection of available sliding materials and bushing types and their various sliding contact surface combinations and operational characteristics, which are critical to the performance of plain bearings in specific applications.

Application of Plain Bearings
The plain bearing market is widely used in many industries, especially if heavy loads are required. They are found in machinery with rotating or sliding shafts, and, depending on the material, they can be a good choice when quiet operation is required. The simplest type of product available at Emechmart is our spherical plain bearings inch series, a sleeve-shaped design that is used in radial loads. It can also be used for additional axial loads, a bushing with a flange is the best option.
