Rod end bearing. Precise and safe movements

Durbal is a manufacturer of high-quality, reliable, and precise rod end bearings. This type of friction and sliding materials in standard design and stainless steel has been widely used in various industries, for example in the packaging and food industry, mechanical engineering, rail transport, renewable energy, or automotive sector. Below we give some examples from the wide range.

Spherical plain bearings with the ball and roller bearings

Rod end bearings are generally standardized elements and can be installed in machines. The aim is to transmit both static and dynamic forces associated with the pivoting and tilting movements that occur.

Rod end bearing consists of a housing and an inner ring in which the self-aligning bearing is integrated, which can be a ball or a roller. Both are available in various sizes and materials, including special designs. They are generally low maintenance and can be supplied in all designs with both male and female threads.

Maintenance-free plain bearings

There are two main lines of maintenance-free ball joints:

– Classic Line. This series of ball joints consist of a housing, an injected raceway, and an inner ring. They have an integrated spherical bearing and can be combined with pneumatic cylinders. They are often used in situations where the rotary motion is small and the speed is slow. They can also withstand very high loads.

– Base Line. This ball joint series consists of a heat-treated steel housing and a pressed ball bearing. Some models are particularly suitable for slow speeds and dynamic loads or even for unilateral movements.
