You'll find rod end bearings in use in a plethora of applications. In the automotive industry, they're used in throttle, steering and gear linkages, to name a few. They can also be found in use in the aeronautical industry, in marine applications and in any type of machinery where there is a need for a precision joint with articulation.
At Simply Bearings, we stock a range of different female rod end types in a choice of different materials and lining types that are suitable for many different applications.
Our galvanised female rod ends come in a wide choice of metric and imperial sizes and with either left-hand or right-hand threads. They have a galvanised body in mild steel and a choice of linings, phosphor bronze, nylon and PTFE. PTFE versions offer a long service life and are low-maintenance. They can cope with high shock loads and a wide temperature range.
For applications that need a harder-wearing product, we can supply stainless steel female rod ends. These also come in a choice of sizes, threads and lining types. Nylon linings are self-lubricating and low-maintenance, and they offer good resistance to wear and moisture. Bronze linings offer low friction and an extended wear life.
For cases where metal is unsuitable, we supply plastic female rod ends. These are lightweight, resistant to chemicals and dirt, and offer dry, maintenance-free operation. They also have a high fatigue strength and are able to compensate for minor misalignments.
