Aurora Bearing Company rod ends are manufactured utilizing two construction styles. They are of the two or three-piece type. Both are made with the solid, or one-piece, race construction method and feature the advantages of metal-to-metal contact between bearing components. (PTFE to metal interface may also be incorporated when specified).
The standard two-piece style consists of a body and precision ground oil impregnated sintered steel ball. This type of construction allows the rod end body to carry a greater radial static load and the oil-impregnated ball is self-lubricating under normal operating conditions. This unit also offers greater misalignment capabilities. A variety of materials and plating options for the component parts in this series are available. Any cold-formable steel in stainless and alloy steel categories can be specified for the body, and all hardenable alloys such as 52100 and 440C stainless steel may be employed as options for the ball component.
The three-piece style consists of a body, ball and race. This type of unit, offering fully swaged bearing construction, features the advantages of maximum spherical conformity between the ball and race. It also offers flexibility in that many different types of materials can be interchanged in each component part, providing combinations that can be tailored to meet just about any application requirement.
