Misalignment

The angle of misalignment in a rod end is controlled by the outside diameter of the head. The maximum degree of misalignment is obtained when the head contacts the side of the fork or clevis in which it is mounted.

Maximum misalignment is calculated by the following formula.

  • Rod End Angle (α):

Where:

D = Head diameter or diameter of outer race
H = Housing Width
W = Ball Width

  • Angles of misalignment for series:
  HM HF CMHD CFHD
  HM C HF C M CR F CR
  HM M HF M HMX G HFX G
  HME M HFE M BHM BHF
