Spherical bearing (BP-A)
High-strength brass bearing plates absorb direct and rotational movement
Featuring a high-strength brass bearing plate with spherical machined surfaces sandwiched between the upper and lower shoes, the BP-A bearing is designed to absorb both vertical load and rotational forces while tracking rotational movement in all directions.
Combines load bearing capacity with wear resistance
The bearing plate is made from high-strength extra-hardened brass casting coated with solid lubricant to provide exceptional sliding performance as well as load resistance and wear resistance characteristics.
Featured in bridges throughout Japan
BP-A bearings are suitable for bridges of all sizes and have become the preferred choice of steel bearing for bridges all over Japan, particularly those used for railways and water pipes.
