English: The crosshead of a steam engine is the sliding bearing used to support the sideways forces from the connecting rod without placing this sideways load onto the piston or piston rod seals.


Trunk pistons, as used in some steam engines and most internal combustion engines, do not have a separate crosshead. However some large internal combustion engines do still use crosshead pistons.
