Lutco is the largest manufacturer of flangettes in North America. Flangette assemblies
are constructed as two piece, pressed steel housings, and are used in applications
that require less critical mounting accuracy and rigidity compared to a cast flange.
The spherical inside surfaces of each pair of flangettes mates with the spherical
outside diameter of the bearing’s outer race to provide initial self-alignment.
Lutco's family of pressed steel pillow blocks are an economical alternative to heavier
cast iron units. They are generally used for light duty applications. The units
consist of a two piece separable stamped steel housing with spherical bearing seat.
This allows the spherical OD bearing initial self-alignment in all directions.
