Spherical roller bearings are a specific type of bearings characterized by their ability to accommodate both radial and axial loads. Their design includes two rows of barrel-shaped rolling elements positioned between two barrel-shaped rings. This configuration enables efficient absorption of forces acting in different directions, making them well-suited for applications where both radial and axial loads are present.
Spherical roller bearings are commonly employed in machinery that requires efficient operation under conditions of heavy loads and intense usage. Thanks to their construction, they provide stability and a long service life, making them a popular choice in heavy industries such as mining, metallurgy, and energy. Their capability to handle loads in various directions makes them invaluable in challenging working conditions.
MTM spherical roller bearings are available in journal and thrust variants.
