Ball Joints

RG Ball Joint

Ball joints are the work horse of light to medium duty motion control applications. They are an economical solution to motion control. Whether you want a standard ball joint linkage or hardened cavity joints for extended there are many ways a Cablecraft Ball Joint can help move your products safely and reliably over time. Cable craft even offers a series of quick-disconnects and spring clip-connected ball joint linkages for improved installation flexibility. Cablecraft also offers a wide range of Swivel Joints also now as in-line ball joints or damper controls. These light duty linkages can help position louvers and or other systems often seen in HVAC applications or light duty controls.

Products

R-G

Our R-G ball joints with steel housing and rubber grommet are highly reliable, economical ball joints that can be used in a variety of medium to heavy duty applications.

SR-G

The SR-G Series offers many similarities to our metal-to-metal R-G ball joint design – but with a hardened steel housing and ball stud combination to increase overall wear life. This design is ideal for applications with excessive vibration, shock loads or heavy wear conditions and is an economical solution to medium to heavy-duty applications.

S/SS/SC

Suitable for light to medium-duty linkage applications requiring quick disconnect capabilities, the S/SS/SCSeries offers three styles of fast assembly/disassembly ball joints:

  • S Series: Spring loaded sleeve, smaller ball joint sizes
  • SS Series: Exposed spring-loaded sleeve, larger sized applications
  • SC Series: Ball stud is retained by a spring clip, for lower load and fewer disconnection requirements

DC/DH

Our DC/DH Control Swivelswere developed specifically for control applicationswhere infinite adjustment isdesired along the length of a connecting rod. They are intended for low load applications and offer in-line misalignments that are suited primarily for push applications.
