Sealmaster Rod Ends and Spherical Plain Bearings

Sealmaster® two and three piece rod end bearing housing designs have been optimized for overall strength.To address a wide variety of application solutions, we offer a housing advantage and variety of outer race materials including:

• Brass
• Steel
• DELRIN
• PTFE liners

Sealmaster® rod end bearings can be joined together. This can be done with a threaded rod or tube as linkage assemblies for flexibility in motion transfer. Sealmaster® spherical plain bearings can accommodate angular misalignment. This provides ease in assembly and smooth motion transfer in a variety of applications.

Sealmaster spherical plain bearings perform a similar function as rod end bearings and must be supported in housing.Sealmaster spherical plain bearings are designed with a variety of outer race materials. These include steel, heat-treated steel, bronze, stainless steel, and heat-treated stainless steel. These are designed for flexibility in a wide variety of application requirements. Sealmaster® spherical plain bearings can accommodate angular misalignment. This provides ease in assembly and smooth motion transfer in a variety of applications.

Rod ends consist of a threaded housing with an integral spherical plain bearing or a threaded housing formed around a ball.
Spherical plain bearings consist of an outer race formed around a hardened spherical ball. Spherical plain bearings provide a similar function as rod ends and require housing support.
