Rod End Bearings

Rod End
The rod end is a mechanical articulating joint connecting a rod or linkage to a mating component. It belongs to the family of plain bearings. It is commonly used in various applications to provide rotational or oscillating movement and transmit forces between two parts that move relative to each other.

Features and benefits:
  • Misalignment accommodation
  • Ready to mount
  • Minimal maintenance
  • Female or male thread

Q: What types of rod ends are available?

Rod ends come in various types, including male and female thread types, left-hand or right-hand threads, and different sizes and load capacities to suit specific applications and mounting requirements.

Q: What types of motion can a rod end accommodate?

Rod ends can accommodate angular misalignment, axial and radial loads, and oscillating or rotating motion.

Q: What is the load capacity of a rod end?

Rod ends are designed to handle both axial and radial loads, making them suitable for applications where forces act in multiple directions. The load capacity varies depending on the size and construction of the rod end.
