Spherical Bearings and Spherical Rod Ends
Spherical bearings are ideal for supporting a rotating shaft in the bore of the inner ring that must move not only rotationally, but also at an angle. Self-lubricating, PTFE-lined spherical bushings feature a protective coating for corrosion resistance. Grainger has models in a number of bore diameters, outside diameters, widths, ball diameters, and static load capacities. Find the spherical rod ends for many of your power transmission needs. They allow pivoting in the housing to compensate for misalignment in industrial applications. Some of these swivel rod ends have a steel body with a nylon/PTFE compound molded race, so they're ideal for low to moderate load applications where parts lubrication is not desirable. We also have models with left-hand or right-hand threads.
