Heavy duty rod endsend applications and handling requirements

- Dec 12, 2018-

The heavy-duty rod end is effective in use, including a hole-shaped head with an integral rod end that forms the rod end seat of a spherical plain bearing. Usually the rod end joint bearing has a left or right female thread (inner) or a male thread (outer). The rod end joint bearing is equipped with a threaded shank with a right thread.

Heavy duty rod endsends can also be used for specific applications, such as applications where the rod end joint bearing is to be attached to the end of the piston rod or to the cylinder base. For these applications, SKF produces rod end bearings with a grooved shank and a compressible thread section or with a “welding handle” (ie, weldable to other components).

The force applied by the heavy-duty rod end during disassembly and assembly cannot be directly transmitted through the spherical sliding surface. In use, an auxiliary loading and unloading tool, such as a sleeve, a detacher, etc., should be used to directly and evenly apply the loading and unloading force applied by the outside. Load-free loading and unloading is carried out on the ferrules to be fitted, or by auxiliary methods such as heating.

When the heavy-duty rod end is assembled with the joint bearing series, it is necessary to leave the position of the segment of the accidental circle. In order to avoid the load directly acting on the segmentation surface, the segmentation surface should be maintained at a right angle to the direction.
