Self-Lubricating Rod End Bearings - J.W. Winco Inc

Jan. 4, 2006
NEW BERLIN, WI -- J. W. Winco, Inc., a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, announced the availability of threaded stem or tapped type Self-Lubricating Rod End Bearings in metric sizes. Rod end bearings are used in controlling and linking mechanisms in all types of machines. They are suitable for high-load, low-speed applications with hanging angles, or that require linear, rotational, or oscillatory motions. The rod end body is made of zinc-plated steel, while the ball socket is made of bearing steel, 100 Cr6, hardened and ground. The external ring is made of a special bronze material which makes these rod ends self-lubricating and maintenance-free, and affords them the lowest possible friction. Additionally, these joints offer a longer life expectancy than rod ends with a PTFE surface, due to less increase of clearance after long operating hours. Operating temperature is rated at -30º C (-22º F) to 150º C (300º F). J.W. Winco offers an extensive selection of inch and metric size adjustable levers, cabinet U-handles, plastic and steel hinges and locking mechanisms, revolving and retractable handles, hand wheels, hand cranks, conveyor components, leveling mounts, hand knobs, spring, ball and indexing plungers, jig, fixture and fastening components, toggle clamps, metric casters and wheels, universal joints, oil sight glasses, and metric tools for the industrial and commercial equipment industries.* Body: Steel, zinc-plated * Thread: Metric right or left hand * Outer race/bushing: sintered bronze, self-lubricating, impregnated with oil * Ball socket: Bearing steel, 100 Cr6, hardened and ground
