The new rod end bearings from Quality Bearings & Components are stocked in over 125 inch and metric sizes for both precision and commercial tolerance applications. Rod end bearings are used on the ends of cylinders or linkages to take up misalignment between two connected parts. Stocked are both male and female configurations and offer optional lubricator fittings. The bearings themselves have a spherically shaped inner ring and a cylindrical bore for shaft mounting. The outer surface of the outer ring allows for easy installation into any housing. These high capacity bearings are designed for superior performance in low frequency applications and have the ability to accommodate moderate shaft misalignments. Their construction consists of two- and four-piece types including self-lubricating models. They are designed to fit shafts ranging from .1900" to 1.0000" and from 3 mm to 12 mm in diameter.
