Bearings Spherical Rod Ends

Spherical bearings and spherical end rods support rotating shafts that move at an angle while rotating to accommodate for shaft misalignment. They are used for articulating joints, such as control rods, steering links, and tie rods. Spherical bearings (also known as ball end bearings, ball joint bearings, or Heim Joints) are compact, making them ideal for joining moving parts in confined spaces where a spherical rod end can't fit. Spherical end rods (also know as rod-end bearings) securely connect shafts or linkages on moving components in vehicles and industrial equipment. They have a mounted spherical bearing on a rod to join two components.

Rod ends and spherical plain bearings effectively handle oscillating movement and angular misalignment at relatively low sliding speeds. Rod ends feature an eye-shaped head on an integral shank. Also known as ball joint rod ends, spherical rod ends house spherical plain bearings. The rod end design supports pivoting within the housing to accommodate misalignment, along with radial and axial loads. Spherical plain bearings are also called spherical plain (or plane) bushings, spherical bushings, or ball joint swivel bearings. Due to their large contact area, spherical bushings are ideal for carrying high-capacity radial and axial loads in a small space. Certain bearings are designed for high misalignment or adjustable clearance. Spherical plain bearings work well in many heavy-duty applications, including articulated machinery joints, vehicle steering linkages, and textile equipment.
