  • ►  Bearings • Spherical Bearings 

    For: Entry

    A spherical bearing is a bearing type that allows angular rotation around a central point in two directions. Usually these bearings support a rotating shaft.

    Aurora Bearing Company is a manufacturer of spherical inch and metric bearings and rod ends. All of these bearing types are available in an Aerospace Series and a Mil Spec Series, as well as for the commercial and industrial markets. Aurora's spherical inch bearings provide ball-to-race conformity and race materials are low carbon, heat treated alloy, or stainless steel. A self lubricating PTFE to metal interface may be optionally specified. Aurora Bearing also produces three lines of metric spherical bearings. All feature one-piece steel raceways. Their rod ends come in inch or metric sizes as well, and feature steel raceway construction and a low friction, high wear resistance molded liner.

  • ►  Bearings • Rod End Bearings 

    For: Entry

    A rod end bearing, also known as a helm joint, is a mechanical articulating joint used where a precision articulating joint is required.

    Aurora are producers of male and female rod end products in both inch and metric sizes. The Aurora Bearing product line includes over 20 different series of rod ends. Aurora has a standard catalog series bearing for every rod end need. Products range in bore size from 1/8 to 2 inch, with threads from 6-32 through 2”-12. Most feature steel raceway construction. Aurora rod end products are available with low carbon, high strength heat treated alloy steel, stainless steel, and aluminum bodies.
