igubal® rod ends are deployed in many different branches of industry. They facilitate rotating, oscillating and linear movements of the shaft – in packaging machines, offshore facilities and bicycles, as examples. There is a version suitable for virtually every installation requirement. The rod ends are available in the K and E dimensional series (DIN ISO 12240) for shaft diameters from 2 to 30 mm (the shaft should have a tolerance between h6 and h9). The bearing tolerance and shape of the bearing housing are also variable – it can be long or short and has a male or female thread. In the standard version, the rod ends are designed with a large bearing clearance in order to ensure secure operation even at high peripheral speeds. The tolerance can be changed upon request. igubal® rod ends maintain their running and wear properties even in demanding environments. They are corrosion-resistant, temperature-resistant between -40 and +200 °C, resistant to media, UV radiation, nuclear radiation, dirt and dust. And in contrast to their metal counterparts, the rod ends are able to absorb vibrations. This property means they are ideal for applications with high-frequency vibrations.
