Aircraft Quality Rod End and Spherical Bearings
...Big Enough to Serve, Small Enough To Care.
Radial Bearing Corporation began in 1955 with the objective of producing and marketing quality products serving the military and commercial aircraft sectors.
Today, we offer a broad line of standard spherical and rod end bearings, as well as a variety of specialty bearings designed and manufactured to your specific requirements.
Our Quality Management System is registered to AS9100 / ISO 9001 (Design Included) upholding our commitment to total customer satisfaction and continuous improvement.
We welcome your inquires regarding both our standard product line and your special product needs.
Radial Bearing rod ends are constructed using the three-piece style, consisting of a body, ball and race. This design offers flexibility in that many different types of metals can be substituted, depending on the end user's special application and assures a constant fit.
Radial Bearing spherical bearings are manufactured using a one-piece race type construction. Lubrication grooves and holes at 180 degrees provide a ready means of relubrication after installation. Various metals can be substituted for special applications.
SELF-LUBRICATING ROD END AND SPHERICAL BEARINGS
We also offer self-lubricating PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) fabric liners on most of our rod end and spherical bearing series. These self-lubricating bearings are specifically designed to eliminate the need for grease re-lubrication within a temperature range of -65 degrees to +300 degrees F on normal applications. This liner provides improved frictional characteristics without lubrication. Where temperatures are expected to exceed the range shown or applications involve high loading, vibration, or high surface speed, please consult our engineering department for other available liners.
If your needs are not met by our standard product line, our engineering department is ready to work with you on your special design requirements, utilizing a wide variety of combinations of materials for bearing components.
Radial has many years of experience in finding sound, economical solutions to your requirements. In many instances, we will design and manufacture the completed assembly; in others, the fabricated housing is supplied by the customer, and we add the bearing components.
