Description of the application
The bearings are used in a suspension system for continuous assembly. The axial spherical plain bearings enable lateral swinging out when cornering and compensate for misalignment from production.
There are high static and dynamic forces (approx. 60 kN). In addition, smaller movements of the sling take place constantly, as well as shocks during loading and unloading.
A material is required that allows maintenance-free operation due to dry running and setting options in all axes.
Special axial spherical plain bearings (outer diameter 260 mm, inner diameter 80 mm) made of steel with a sliding body made of ZX-100K are used in this application.
No lifetime limit is expected.
Simple construction and maintenance-free operation.
