Rod ends are mechanical articulating joint. Such joints are used on the ends of control rods, steering links, tie rods, or anywhere a precision articulating joint is required. Rod ends are small parts of Spherical Plain Bearings, is refers to the rod end or mounted on the rod end joint bearing, so its performance characteristics are similar to Spherical Plain Bearings, commonly used in the motion of the low speed movement, also can tilt in certain Angle range for movement, when the supporting shaft and shaft shell hole concentricity is bigger, can still work normally.
The function of Rod ends is to show by equipment performance, when installating rod ends, people are generally used to press, but if there is not such a equipment, we also can finish it, just use assembling casing and small hammer. Use a small hammer to hammer force uniform to the device on the circumference of a circle of ring width, then also because of the role of the hammer casing assembly will become spherical.
How to exert the force in the installation, should match the rod ends size and cooperate with the magnitude of interference, if it is a middle-sized or large size ,we should use the method of hot charging . As long as put the rod end in the tank that will be dedicated to uniform heating, before hot charging And it is best to keep the temperature at about 80℃ to 100℃.Then bring the bearing out, with a clean cloth to clean oil stains on the surface of the attachments, and then push the rod ends to resist shoulder. Bearing will gradually cool, in the process of Chinese traditional medicine always keep pushing tight state, or with a small hammer by assembling casing tap joint bearing on tight. And one more thing is to keep in mind, is to install to rotate a little bit about the rod end, mainly can avoid some trouble. As a result of the rod end outer ring and shell holes can also be the case when tight fit into the joint bearing after heating, this situation is apt to cooperate with the surface damage, so choose to heating rod end, to prevent affecting the performance of bearibngs.
This is about the rod ends installation steps and some matters needing attention,
