Roller bearing standard for angle of misalignment

Roller bearing standard for angle of misalignment

Is there a standard for free angle of misalignment for a standard roller bearing, 12-15mm ID.

RE: Roller bearing standard for angle of misalignment

regular cylndrical roller ?
page "585" here -

Skf's CARB bearings have a curious profile that permits a lot more.

Better to provide a statically self-aligning feature if there is not a common housing.

RE: Roller bearing standard for angle of misalignment

There are various types of roller bearings.

Cylindrical roller bearings only accept a couple minutes of arc of misalignment before having their performance affected.
Spherical roller bearings can accommodate between 1.5 and 2.5° degrees of misalignment, depending on their series.

You need to better define what type of roller bearing we are talking about here. "Standard" is not enough information.

UC's last log in was the day of the OP last year. oh well
