Orkot® Spherical Bearings

When there is a large misalignment in the shaft in an application, an Orkot® Spherical Bearing should be applied.

IMG_1695Djons has extensive experience in designing and producing Orkot® Spherical Bearings. We have two ranges of spherical bearings available that can replace the GE series of spherical bearings. Our engineers are able to design custom spherical bearings to suit any type of movement and load of the spherical. The diameter can range from 6mm to 1500mm. We supply large series or single units.

All our spherical bearings are usually made from stainless steel 316 and Orkot® TLMM. For special applications, Orkot® C410 and alternative steel materials are available.


  • Maintenance free, no lubrication required
  • Friction coefficient is constant even after standstill
  • Accommodates long-term constant loads
  • Load capability is comparable with metal spherical bearings
  • Can be used in temperatures up to 130°C
  • Useful in underwater applications
