SPHERICAL BEARINGS

ROD ENDS

COMMERCIAL AND PRECISION

eim rod ends and spherical plain bearings are intended for linkage applications where a bearing must accommodate significant misalignment. While spherical plain bearings offer flexibility in housing and mounting design, the user bears the responsibility for housing design and the cost of housing manufacture. Rod ends offer greater mounting convenience and provide a compact, lightweight, economical design alternative to the spherical plain bearing. Heim Bearings Company offers the industry’s widest selection of rod end types and sizes.

Rod End Construction
Heim offers three basic rod end constructions. The four piece rod end uses race inserts, typically of brass, to provide lubricity in the bearing area. This design offers reduced internal clearance, and provides smoother operation. It is ideal for dynamic applications. The two piece rod end uses a rod end body which is formed around a spherical ball. The comparatively heavy cross section of the rod end body in the two piece design provides high strength. This makes the two piece rod end ideal for highly loaded, static applications where high strength is required. The cartridge type rod end consists of a spherical plain bearing mounted in a rod end body. This design allows the optimum selection of materials for ball, race and rod end body. The cartridge type rod end can also accommodate a PTFE liner for selflubrication. This design is best suited for aircraft and military applications where material selection is a primary design consideration.

Heim rod ends are offered in four grades: precision, commercial, aircraft, and military. Precision rod ends are manufactured to tight tolerances for applications requiring improved linkage accuracy and reduced looseness. Commercial rod ends are produced using standard materials and manufacturing methods, and are an economical choice for industrial applications. Aircraft rod ends use premium materials, and have magnafluxed rod end bodies. Originally intended for aircraft applications, aircraft rod ends are used in many industrial applications where a high degree of reliability is required. Military rod ends are produced in strict accordance with all applicable military specifications and are typically used in military and commercial aviation applications, or when Mil-Spec approval is required. Precision Rod Ends Grade HM and HF four piece precision rod ends use brass race

inserts for lubricity and clearance control. They are produced to tight tolerances for applications requiring a more precise rod end; for example, a linkage where positioning accuracy is essential. These rod end bodies and balls are plated for corrosion resistance. Series BHM, HFX G and HMX G four piece precision extra capacity rod ends are the high strength series intended for more heavily loaded, static and dynamic industrial applications. These rod ends have heat treated bodies for increased strength and aluminum bronze race inserts for high bearing capacity. The rod end bodies are protective coated for corrosion resistance and the balls are chrome plated for superior wear and corrosion resistance. Series BHM (male) and series HFX G (female) have common thread sizes. Series HMX G (male) have oversized shanks for additional shank strength. •Series HM and HF: pages 6-7 •Series BHM, HFX G and HMX G: pages 8-9

Self-lubricating Rods Ends
Heim produces metal-to-metal rod ends and self-lubricating rod ends. All metal-tometal rod ends, including brass insert four piece types, require regular lubrication. This can be accomplished by splash or immersion oil lubrication, or by greasing through optional lubricators (grease fittings). Self-lubricating types are used where relubrication is not practical, or in applications where relubrication is not desirable, such as on food processing machinery or in clean environments. Heim self-lubricating rods ends are available with bonded PTFE fabric liners, or with molded, engineered thermoplastic race inserts.

Commercial Rod Ends Series HM C and HF C four piece commercial rod ends use Heim’s classic brass race insert design for lubricity and clearance control. These rod ends are preferred for dynamic applications. Heim commercial rod ends have zinc plated bodies and nickel plated balls for corrosion resistance. Series M CR and F CR two piece commercial rod ends offer high strength for heavy static loads. Heim’s unique manufacturing process for two piece rod ends yields the industry’s best conformity between ball and body for maximum bearing capacity. • Series HM C and HF C: pages 10-11 • Series M CR and F CR: pages 12-13 Series CMHD & CFHD self-lubricating commercial rod ends use an engineered thermoplastic race for applications where relubrication is not practical or desirable.

Aircraft Rod Ends Series HM M and HF M four piece aircraft rod ends have magnafluxed rod end bodies for a high degree of assurance of rod end integrity. The bearing surface is a chrome plated ball on brass race inserts. This series was originally intended for general aviation applications and is also used in many industrial applications where rod end reliability is critical. Series M M and F M special purpose aircraft rod ends use materials and construction identical to series HM M and HF M but have different dimensions. Series HME M and HFE M self lubricating aircraft rod ends use Heim’s UNIFLON® PTFE liner and cartridge type construction. The Heim UNIFLON® PTFE liner is approved to SAE-AS81820 (formerly MIL-B-18820). • Series HM M and HF M: pages 16-17 • Series M M and F M: pages 18-19 • Series HME M and HFE M: pages 20-21 Military Rod Ends Series ME and FE milspec rod ends use Heim’s Type E UNIFLON® PTFE liner and cartridge type construction.

Type E bearings are designed for use in low surface speed high unit loading where metal to metal is limited or non-desirable. Heim has developed UNIFLON® Type E. Heim recommends its Type “VV” liner. aluminum. Type “VV” Liner For less demanding or higher temperature applications. (optional) Deep Case Carburized and Hardened Races Coefficient of Friction vs. a full complement of large diameter balls. Heim’s Type E is qualified to procurement specification SAE-AS81820 (formerly MIL-B-81820). PTFE has the lowest coefficient of friction of known materials today. yielding greater ability to accomodate thrust loads. Why UNIFLON TYPE E? UNIFLON® Type E liner is recommended over other bearing materials for the following reasons. Sample Applications: wheels casters ammunition loaders textile machines door closers power tools conveyors wheelchairs pulleys lift mechanisms TEMPERATURE F° OSCILLATIONS IN THOUSANDS The chart above shows the coefficient of friction of UNIFLON® Type E liner and how this low friction fabric dramatically improves with increasing temperature. UNIFLON® Type E can be used with many combinations of hardened steel. The backing or basic high strengthfabric in Type E has an inherent coefficient of friction only slightly higher than PTFE (.004 .
