Maintenance-free spherical sliding bearings are becoming increasingly important in industrial applications. Increasingly high demands are being placed on machines and systems in terms of service life and maintenance. Self-lubricating spherical bearings from the DEVA® system offer the best conditions for maintenance-free operation. Spherical bearings with spherical sliding surfaces are machine elements that are mainly used for oscillating rotary and tilting movements under high loads.
Due to the spatial adjustability on all sides, misalignments and shaft deflections are compensated. High edge pressures, which in extreme cases lead to premature failure in conventional cylindrical plain bearing bushes, are therefore eliminated when adjustable spherical bearings are used. A large number of requirements are made for maintenance-free operation, which are met to a sufficient degree when DEVA spherical bearings are used. More information is available in the following manual.
