Spherical rod ensure accuracy in linkages

The BJT series of M6 to M14 glass reinforced polymer spherical rod ends from Elesa is designed to require zero maintenance with low wear and to absorb vibration and stress while minimising noise.

The components have good mechanical strength and low weight, while being corrosion resistant even in aggressive industrial environments where chemical agents, fine dusts, dirt, fabrics or machining residues are present.

The BJT series features encapsulated self-lubricating balls and are especially suitable for rotary, oscillating and linear movements even in aggressive environments. Elesa considers applications are likely to include sensor mechanisms, gas struts, rod control linkages, motion control – low power movement transmission and pneumatic actuator systems.

This operation of oscillating levers and conversion of rotary to linear motion is particularly useful for remote operation of long rod systems, such as pick and place assembly machines.
