Heim rod ends are intended for linkage applications where a bearing must accommodate significant misalignment. While spherical plain bearings offer flexibility in housing and mounting design, the user bears the responsibility for housing design and the cost of housing manufacture. Rod ends offer greater mounting convenience and provide a compact, lightweight, economical design alternative to the spherical plain bearing. Heim Bearings Company offers the industry’s widest selection of rod end types and sizes.
