Our products increase the performance of machines and systems, vehicles and devices. Durable and capable of supporting heavy loads, they ensure reliable operation – even in the most demanding conditions.
The sliding- and antifriction bearing rod ends and spherical plain bearings for the aforementioned industrial sectors are also available in stainless steel. We can provide you following brands of rod ends and spherical plain bearings: DURBAL, IGUS, SKF and Sealmaster.
We also offer custom-made products and customer-specific linkages (system) solutions, to ensure the optimum functioning of all operations involving bearings.
- Rod ends Rod ends consist of an eye-shaped head with integral shank that forms a housing for a spherical plain bearing. They are used primarily on the ends of hydraulic or pneumatic pistons to join the cylinder to an associated component. We supply a wide assortment of standard rod ends with different thread and shank designs at the rod end housing, making them easy to install. The various sliding contact surface combinations of the bearings make the rod ends suitable for the operating conditions of many applications. We can provide you following brands of rod ends: DURBAL, IGUS, SKF and Sealmaster.
- Spherical-plain bearings Radial spherical plain bearings have an inner ring with a sphered convex outside diameter and an outer ring with a correspondingly sphered but concave inside surface. Their design makes them particularly suitable for bearing arrangements where alignment movements between shaft and housing have to be accommodated, or where oscillating or recurrent tilting or slewing movements must be possible at relatively slow sliding speeds, often accompanied with heavy loads. We supply a wide assortment of radial spherical plain bearings, with rollers or balls, maintenance free or maintenance required, angular contact- and thrust-spherical plain bearings, with various sliding contact surface combinations. We can provide you following brands of spherical plain bearings: DURBAL, IGUS, SKF and Sealmaster.
