Rod ends are used in controlling and linking mechanisms in all types of machines. These RoHS-compliant rod end bearings are suitable for high load, low speed applications with hanging angles, requiring linear, rotational or oscillatory motions. They are offered in both tapped and threaded stem versions.
The rod end bearings are made of zinc-plated low carbon steel, with right or left hand threads. The ball socket is low carbon, zinc-plated steel, case hardened. The external ring is made of a special oil impregnated bronze material, which makes these rod ends self-lubricating, maintenance-free, and guaranteed lowest friction. In addition, these joints have less increase of clearance after longer operating hours than rod ends with PTFE-surface outer races, and therefore higher life expectancy.
