Rod ends are the most long-lasting options for linkages as they offer more wear surface at the bearing with the options to include long life self-lubricated surfaces such as PFTE liners, Lubricated Nylon, Oil Impregnated Bronze and or many other specialty coatings for extreme environments or temperatures such as Cablecraft line of proprietary high temp composite materials. Cablecraft's broad range of Rod End linkages can help you find a solution for most any application. Whether the need is for survival in corrosive environments with our stainless steel products or in dirty conditions with our Self Lubricated bearing raceways(Nylon, PTFE or Sintered Bronze) or even in extreme temps with our HOT Race™ series of products. There should be a product line that will fit your application.
Our most popular series, SPM/SPF self-lubricating rod end linkages are suitable for many light and heavy/medium duty industrial mechanical motion transfer applications. They are well suited for applications requiring low friction, low moisture absorption, high wear resistance and/or wide operating temperature ranges.
This stainless-steel version of SPM / SPF rod end seriesis suitable for most industrial mechanical motion transfer applications.
The MJ-M/FJ-M Series is suitable for many light and heavy/medium duty industrial mechanical motion transfer applications requiring metric thread sizing. This series has an injection molded, reinforced nylon raceway design that delivers self-lubricating, low friction, and moisture-resistant performance.
New HOT-Race™ High Temperature Rod Ends and Linkages are now available fromCablecraft Motion Controls. HP Series rod-ends are designed to operate in high cycle, low to moderate load applications, demanding superior thermal stability, at high operating temperatures, and resistance to harsh environments.
Capable of withstanding temperatures from 450° F to 650° F, potentially reducing or eliminating the need for heat shielding. In commercial/ passenger vehicle turbocharger applications, Exhaust Gas Recovery Systems (EGRS), and other temperature elevated applications; overall system costs can often be significantly reduced.
The 2-piece metal to metal EM/EF Series offers our most economical design and is suitable for many light to heavy duty industrial/mechanical motion transfer applications.
Suitable for many light to heavy duty industrial/mechanical motion transfer applications, the EM-T/EF-T Series offers our most economical 2-piece, PTFE lined design.
Suitable for many light to heavy duty industrial/mechanical motion transfer applications, the 2-piece metal to metal EM-M/EF-M Series offers an economical design in metric sizing.
Our metric 4-piece, bronze race, oil impregnated rod end linkages are suitable for many high precision, mechanical motion transfer applications, the DBM/DBF Series delivers precise and extremely low friction performance leading to longer wear life, higher temperature performance, and lower maintenance cost.
