ELGES spherical plain bearings, rod ends

Maintenance-free ELGES rod ends

Maintenance-free rod ends comprise a housing with an integral shank and a maintenance-free spherical plain bearing. 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. They are suitable for slow movements with small to moderate swivel angles, for unilateral loads and in certain cases for alternating loads (in the case of GE..-UK-2RS, also for alternating loads). Sealed rod ends have lip seals on both sides and are thus protected against contamination and spray water.

Rod ends to DIN ISO 12 240-4, series E, have radial spherical plain bearings GE..-UK or GE..-UK-2RS with a hard chromium/PTFE composite or hard chromium/ELGOGLIDE® sliding contact surface and a right hand or left hand internal or external thread. The thin walled design of the eye housing allows compact adjacent constructions.

Rod ends to DIN ISO 12 240-4, series K, have radial spherical plain bearings GE..-PW with a steel/PTFE-bronze film sliding contact surface and a right hand or left hand internal or external thread.
