Insert bearings are designed to fit into bearing housings. They are often sold when assembled into a suitable bearing housing but may also be bought alone. They have the characteristic of being self aligning and can be easily mounted in a housing block. The housing is available in various configurations.
Insert bearings and bearing housings are used in motors, chain belts, automobiles, chain wheels, mining, metallurgy, mechanical transmission dyeing, chemical industry, textile machinery, agricultural machinery, and machines for food processing and packing.
