precision rod ends

Heim® Bearings produces the industry's widest range of rod end types and sizes. Heim's® product range includes rod ends with brass race inserts in standard, precision, and high capacity designs; high strength two piece designs; self-lubricating rod ends with engineered thermoplastic races or Teflon® liners; and military standard rod ends for the ultimate in rod end performance. Heim® also produces a complete line of ball bearing rod ends that have extremely low friction and accommodate misalignment. Heim® rod ends are also available with a variety of platings, coatings, and materials, and with a wide range of optional features such as lubrication fittings, left hand threads, and keyway slots.

Heim® rod ends and spherical plain bearings are intended for linkage applications where a bearing must accommodate significant misalignment. While spherical plain bearings offer flexibility in housing and mounting design, rod ends offer greater mounting convenience and provide a compact, lightweight, economical design alternative to the spherical plain bearing.
