We stock a comprehensive range of steel / bronze lined plain male rod ends in a variety of metric and imperial thread sizes and left and right hand threads. Choose between our cost effective Euro Budget bearings or SKF steel and bronze lined plain male rod end bearings, manufactured from either free Machin able steel 9 SMnPb28K zinc coated and chromatised and bronze, (sizes 5-12) or heat treatable C35N Steel zinc coated and chromatised and bronze (sizes 14-30). These male rod end bearings are an affordable and cost effective solution for applications ranging from automotive and agricultural to industrial, medical and leisure.
Steel / bronze lined plain male rod ends are commonly used for pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders, or for any application where a precision articulating joint may be required, for example control and ties rods and steering links. Our steel and bronze lined plain male rod end bearings are also suitable for medium heavy industrial and mechanical load applications, where low friction and good wear resistance are required, or where heavy alternating loads may need to be accommodated.
Also known as heim joints in the US and rose joints in the UK, these steel and bronze lined plain male rod end bearings are classified as maintenance free, though they may require re-lubrication occasionally, via the lubrication point in the side of the head. This will help to extend the bearing's life. Please note that size SAKAC5M has no lubrication point and must be re-lubricated directly.
With a lower load carrying capacity than steel/steel rod ends, steel/bronze male rod ends have the advantage of being more suitable for applications where lubrication starvation may occur. Whether you need 1 or 1000 steel and bronze lined plain male rod end bearings, we'll supply them with free next day delivery anywhere in the UK. For low international shipping rates, add the items you require to our smart shopping cart and let us do the rest.
