Since the introduction of the spherical plain bearing, ELGES spherical plain bearings and ELGES rod ends have had a decisive influence on the development and technological progress of these precision components. This led to extensive product innovations and many pioneering applications only became possible due to the know-how of the company group. Furthermore, the new maintenance-free ELGOGLIDE® bearings – as spherical plain bearings, cylindrical bushes or combinations of radial, angular contact and axial bearings – continue the tradition of this product group and at the same time represent state-of-the-art engineering and economical bearing solutions.
Spherical plain bearings and rod ends are available in numerous designs, dimension series and versions. The ELGOGLIDE® types are maintenance-free – the types requiring maintenance are easily maintained – and extremely reliable in operation and have a long operating life. Catalogue 238 describes the range of ELGES spherical plain bearings and ELGES rod ends. It has been completely revised from Catalogue 236. Any information in previous editions which does not concur with the data in this edition is therefore invalid. The principal changes relate to the maintenance-free sliding material ELGOGLIDE®.
