Standard Set-screw Housed Units (Self-Lube Units or Mounted Ball Bearing Units) provide simple and effective bearing arrangements capable of accommodating moderate initial misalignment from mounting errors. The range of inserts and housings cover a wide variety of styles, heavy or light applications and metric or inch sizes. The reliability, simplicity and ease of assembly of items in the Set-screw range have resulted in their popularity for applications such as process and automation equipment, extraction, agricultural and construction machinery.

Standard Set-screw Housed Units are available in cast iron, cast steel, stainless steel, pressed steel and plastic. These bearings are available in 2 and 4 bolt arrangements and come as standard with self-lube bearing inserts. The inserts have a wide inner ring and are basically deep groove ball bearings similar to the 6200 popular metric series of bearings. Bearing inserts have a radial internal clearance of C3 for standard bearing inserts and offered with either parallel or spherical outside diameter outer rings.
