igubal® rod end bearing, female thread
Rod end bearing with female thread in metric and imperial dimensions.
The igubal® rod end bearing can also be used in tough environments. They are corrosion-resistant in humid environments and resistant to weak acids and bases. The operating temperatures of the rod ends range from
-30 to +80 °C. Rod ends are also resistant to dirt and dust.
igubal® detectableThe igubal® CL DT bearings can be found quickly in case of misuse or a system crash due to their detectable material. Even the smallest fragments can be found by metal detectors.
If you want to save weight
For rotating, oscillating and linear movements
If high-frequency oscillations/ vibrations occur
If quiet operation is required
If you need an electrically insulating part
If corrosion resistance is required
In combination with pneumatic cylinders and gas struts
If chemical resistance is required
If high stiffness is required
If they should be detectable
In temperatures over +80 °C (then the HT variants are more suitable)
If rotational speeds higher than 0.5 m/s are required
If really high tensile and axial forces occur
When applications are operated with a hydraulic cylinder
If dimensions above 30 mm are required
Maintenance-free, self lubricating

Dimensional series K and E, dimensions according to DIN ISO 12240
Version with metal sleeve in the spherical ball for enhanced torque
igubal rod ends can be used with different tolerances depending on the individual application. They are designed with a large clearance in the standard product, which enables a secure operation even under high peripheral speeds. The bore of the spherical ball is produced to a standard tolerance range E10. Shafts should also meet recommended tolerances h6 and h9.
Please contact us if you require lower or additional bearing tolerances for a rod end bearing.
igubal® rod ends absorb high forces in normal ambient temperatures, have excellent dampening properties while weighing only a fifth of the conventional metallic bearing housing.
In applications with high continuous loads and high temperatures, the load capacity of the igubal® rod end bearing should be tested in the application simulation.
The shaft should rotate within the iglidur® W300 bearing ball. In metallic rod ends, rotary motion takes place
between the race and the spherical bearing. Taking the radial
loads into account, maximum surface speeds up to 0.5 m/s rotating can be attained.
The maintenance-free igubal® rod ends also enable linear and oscillating movements of the shaft without additional measures.
igubal® rod ends are available in the dimensional series K and E for shaft diameters of 2 to 30 mm in all dimensions in accordance with DIN ISO 12240 and respectively in
type A – with outside thread and
type B – with inside thread
Dimensional series K in A+B variants for temperatures upt to
+200°C (HAT material).
