igubal® rod end bearings

igubal® rod end bearings can also be used without any problems in a tough environment. The bearings are corrosion-resistant in moist or wet areas and are resistant to weak acids and alkalis. The application temperatures range from
-30 to +80 °C. Noteworthy is the insensitivity to dirt and dust.

igubal® detectable
In case of misuse or crash of the system, igubal® products CL DT can be found quickly through their detectable materials. Even the smallest fractions are thus detected using commercially available metal detection systems.

When to use it?

When you want to save weight

When rotating, oscillating and linear movements should be implemented

When high-frequency oscillations/vibrations predominate

When a low-noise operation is desired

When an electrically insulating part is required

When freedom from corrosion is desired

For combinations with pneumatic cylinders and gas struts

When chemical resistance is required

When high stiffening is required

When not to use?

When you have temperatures above +80°C (then HT options)

When rotation speeds in excess of 0.5 m/s should be implemented

When very high tensile and lateral loads prevail

When applications should be implemented with hydraulic cylinder

When dimensions over 30 mm are needed

Version with metal sleeve in the spherical ball for enhanced torque


igubal rod end bearings can be used, according to the application, with different tolerances. They are designed with a large clearance in the standard product, which enables a secure operation even under high peripheral speeds. The bore of the inner ring has a tolerance according to E10. The shafts should have a tolerance between h6 and h9.
Please contact us in case you require lower or more bearing tolerances.


igubal® rod end bearings take high forces in normal ambient temperatures, have excellent dampening properties and weigh only a fifth of the conventional metallic bearing housing.
In particular cases the load carrying capacity of the rod end bearings should be checked in a practical trial especially with high constant loads and at higher temperatures.

Coefficients of surface friction and speeds

Rotary motions of the mounted shaft take place directly in the bearing ball made of iglidur® W300. The advantage of this plastic/steel plain bearing is that high speeds can be achieved in dry operation. Taking the radial loads into account, maximum surface speeds up to 0.5 m/s rotating can be attained.

The maintenance-free igubal® rod end bearings casually permit linear and oscillating movements of the shaft.

Delivery program

igubal® rod end bearings are available in the dimensional series K and E for shaft diameters of 2 to 30 mm in all dimensions according to DIN ISO 12240, and of course respectively in the

Form A - with male thread and

Form B - with female thread

The dimensional series K and partly E are moreover available in inch dimensions and – as special version – with a stainless steel sleeve in the spherical ball. Thereby an essentially higher tightening torque is possible than with the plastic spherical ball. Please ask us for other sizes.
