Joint Bearing

Joint bearings, also known as spherical plain bearings or spherical bearings, are mechanical components designed to accommodate misalignment between two parts. They consist of an inner ring with a spherical surface and an outer ring with a concave spherical bore. This design allows for smooth rotation and movement in multiple directions, making them suitable for applications where there are angular misalignments or oscillating movements. Joint bearings are commonly used in various industrial machinery and automotive applications, such as steering systems, suspension systems, and linkage mechanisms.
