ELGES spherical plain bearings, rod ends

ELGES rod ends requiring maintenance

These rod ends comprise a housing with an integral shank and a spherical plain bearing requiring maintenance. The housing with integral shank has an external or internal thread. The spherical plain bearing is firmly seated and located in the housing. Rod ends are protected against corrosion by a zinc plating.

Rod ends can support radial forces in a tensile or compressive direction, transmit movements and forces with low moment levels, are suitable for alternating loads and in certain cases for unilateral loads. The thin walled design of the eye housing allows compact adjacent constructions. Sealed rod ends are protected against contamination and spray water by lip seals.

Rod ends to DIN ISO 12 240-4, series E, have radial spherical plain bearings GE..-DO or GE..-DO-2RS with a steel/steel sliding contact surface, a right hand or left hand internal or external thread and taper type lubrication nipple to DIN 71412. They can be relubricated via the lubrication nipple or the housing bore.

Rod ends to DIN ISO 12 240-4, series K, have a left or right hand internal or external thread and funnel type lubrication nipple to DIN 3 405 on the eye housing.
