Characteristics and applications of rod end joint bearings

- Jul 25, 2018-

Rod end joint bearings are also spherical plain bearings. The usual design structure of this product is composed of inner and outer rings with spherical sliding spherical contact surfaces. The benefit of this design is that it can withstand large loads. According to the different types and structures of the rod end joint bearings, it is possible to withstand radial loads, axial loads or combined loads of radial and axial simultaneously.


Moreover, when using the rod end joint bearing, considering that it can generate self-lubrication, it is often used for the lower-speed oscillating motion, and can also perform the tilting motion within a certain angle range, when the support shaft and the shaft shell hole are different in mind. When you are old, you can still work normally. At present, the bearings of this series are mainly used for low-speed oscillating motion, tilting motion and rotary motion.


From the current application situation, in fact, spherical plain bearings and rod end joint bearings can be used in different designs, and can also be combined into sliding contact surfaces. Each design and combination has unique properties that make rod end bearings suitable for special applications.
