Spherical Plain Bearings / Rod Ends

Spherical plain bearings are supplied with or without shanks. These products are characterised by the fact that they can be installed with any tilting angle that is desired. Spherical plain bearings withstand radial forces. They transfer forces and movements with low torque levels and, as a result, keep flexural stress away from the construction elements.
