General Aviation

Male Rod Ends

Female Rod Ends

Rod ends in this section are used by the general aviation, experimental, and ultra light aircraft industries, and in non-critical applications by commercial aircraft manufacturers. These rod ends are manufactured employing strict quality requirements. All are designed with one piece, fully swaged steel race construction. Total traceability is maintained on all parts except where noted.

Male Rod Ends

Male Rod EndsRod ends with external or male body threads. All are made with the solid, or one-piece, race construction method and feature the advantages of metal-to-metal contact between bearing components. (PTFE to metal interface may also be incorporated when specified). All balls are precision ground and heat treated. All threads are rolled to appropriate classifications.


Female Rod Ends

Female Rod EndsRod ends with internal or female threads. As with Aurora male rod ends, all are made with the solid, or one-piece, race construction method and feature the advantages of metal-to-metal contact between bearing components. (PTFE to metal interface may also be incorporated when specified). All balls are precision ground and heat treated.
