Elastomeric Rod Ends

Elastomeric Rod Ends

Commercial and defense aircraft manufacturers need to build planes that offer durable support for interior service equipment, while ensuring the quitest cabin possible. Overhead stowage bins and other structures need to accommodate changes in alignment while reducing in-flight, structure-borne noise. To meet these and other application parameters, ITT Enidine Inc. has developed a family of elastomeric rod ends. Their versatile design effectively supports the load capacity, offers alignment forgiveness, resists radial push-out forces and reduces high frequency noise by 20 dB or more.

ITT Enidine Inc.'s Rod Ends are constructed of a specially developed elastomer, molded between the alodine-coated aluminum or stainless steel inner and outer race of the aspherical rod end.

This special elastomer has unique operating characteristics, producing a part that is highly durable with excellent isolation qualities. The 7075-T6 lightweight aluminum components give the rod end the capability to accommodate high ultimate loads, with the high strength-to-weight ratio required of aerospace applications.

Datasheets

Specifications

  • Reliabie over a wide temperature range -40ºF to 180ºF
  • Excellent mechanical properties.
  • Standard Elastomer Products
  • Effectively attenuates high frequency noise
  • High strength provides static support
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Elastomeric bearing accommodates misalignment
  • Lightweight construction
  • Wide operating temperature range
  • FAA/PMA approved

Applications

Elastomeric rod ends are well suited wherever a standard rod end can be used and there is a need for noise reduction, motion accommodation or zero bearing stop.
