Radial load and design requirements for spherical rod end bearing

- Sep 12, 2018 -

Spherical rod end bearing need to be effectively passed through many of their cold and hot working processes. In order to satisfy the request for small amount, high efficiency and high quality, the bearing steel should have good processing properties, for example, cold and hot forming properties, and cutting. Performance, hardenability, etc. It should also reach requests for proper chemical composition, average external organization, low non-metallic inclusions, conformity of external appearance defects, and appearance of decarburization layers not exceeding regulatory concentrations.

Spherical rod end bearing and rod end joint bearings are available in a wide range of designs and have different combinations of sliding contact surfaces. Each design and combination has unique properties that make it ideal for certain applications. When the outer ring of the end rod joint bearing and the housing hole are tightly fitted, the housing can be heated and then loaded into the joint bearing. In particular, the joint bearing of light metal material may cause damage to the mating surface due to the pressing of the outer ring during the tight fitting process. In this case, the end rod joint bearing should be heated first.

The support of the spherical rod end bearing is essentially capable of bearing the radial load. It can be used to fix the shaft during the process of use, and the bearing is quick and easy to be automatically selected. It is the fixed shaft that allows it to only rotate and control its axial and radial movement. If the motor has no bearings, it will not work at all. Because the shaft can move in any direction, and the motor requires the shaft to rotate only when it is working.
