Our igubal® rod end bearings (both the spherical ball and its housing) are designed with our high-performance, self-lubricating plastic materials for dry-running operation. They don’t require any external lubricants, which enables the system to be maintenance-free and resistant to dirt and dust. Our rod ends are also corrosion resistant, lightweight, vibration-damping, and highly rigid and durable. igubal® compensates for misalignment errors as well as edge loads. It’s suitable for rotating, oscillating and linear movements. We rigorously test our rod ends each year inside of our 41,000ft2 test lab in Germany. The data is stored in our online service life calculator, which you can use to calculate how many hours a specific rod end is expected to last inside your application. It takes just a few minutes.
