INA rod ends bearing, maintenance-free

INA maintenance-free rod ends and maintenance-free corrosionresistant rod ends comprise a housing with integral shank and a maintenance-free spherical plain bearing. The shank has an internal or external thread, the spherical plain bearing is firmly seated and located in the housing.

INA rod ends are available in open designs and in designs sealed on both sides. The housings and shanks are protected against corrosion by a zinc coating.

The sliding layer between the inner ring and outer ring is PTFE composite, ELGOGLIDE or PTFE film.

Area of application

INA maintenance-free rod ends can support radial loads in a tensile or compressive direction. They are particularly suitable for slow movements with small to moderate swivel angles and unilateral loads. For alternating loads, rod ends with bearings of series GE..-UK-2RS(-2TS) and GE..-FW-2RS(-2TS) can be used.

INA rod ends bearing, maintenance-free

INA rod ends - Dimension series E

INA rod ends to DIN ISO 12240-4, dimension series E incorporate radial spherical plain bearings GE..-UK or GE..-UK-2RS(-2TS) and have a right or left internal or external thread. The sliding contact surfaces are hard chromium/PTFE composite or hard chromium/ ELGOGLIDE. The thin walled design of the eye housing allows compact adjacent constructions. These rod ends are also available by agreement with radial spherical plain bearings GE..-FW or GE..-FW-2RS(-2TS) of dimension series G.

INA rod ends - Dimension series K

INA rod ends to DIN ISO 12240-4, dimension series K incorporate radial spherical plain bearings GE..-PW and have a right hand or left hand internal or external thread. The sliding contact surface is steel/PTFE film.

INA corrosion-resistant rod ends

INA corrosion-resistant rod ends to DIN ISO 12240-4, dimension series K incorporate radial spherical plain bearings GE..-PS and have a right hand or left hand internal or external thread. The sliding contact surface comprises corrosion-resistant steel and corrosionresistant PTFE film attached to the curved outer ring surface.

The housing and shank has a thread to DIN 13 and the diameter range extends from 5 mm to 30 mm. The bore tolerance of the spherical plain bearings is H7.

INA corrosion-resistant rod ends with an internal thread are also available with CETOP mounting dimensions to ISO 8139 for pneumatic cylinders. These are used in preference in control and automation engineering.

Series, sliding layer, standard

INA Maintenance-free rod ends are designed according to their specific series with different sliding layers.
