Bearing terminology. Properties. Bearing designs and features.Steel-on-steel and steel-on-bronze rod ends have very wear-resistant sliding surfaces and perform well under conditions of lubricant starvation. Rod ends with this sliding contact surface combination require regular relubrication. They are particularly suited for bearing arrangements where heavy alternating loads have to be accommodated.


Self-lubricating rod ends and stainless steel rod ends both can be ideal for low- to moderate-load applications where parts lubrication is not desirable. Choose from left- and right-hand, male and female plain ball and male and female studded ball rod end bearings in a variety of sizes.Rod Ends and Spherical Plain Bearings Rod ends and spherical plain bearings are designed to support a load, accommodate angular motion, misalignment and oscillation in mechanical motion systems. Rod ends consist of a threaded housing with an integral spherical plain bearing or a threaded housing formed around a ball. Spherical plain bearings.
