Female Spherical Rod Ends

Female Rod End

Series ASPF, ACF, ACFT & SSF-T Rod Ends

Left-hand threads are available in all sizes. Left-hand units are marked for easy user identification. (Add suffix "L" to the part number. i.e. ASPFL4).
  • Parts are designed & manufactured to SAE J1120 specifications.
  • ASPF, ACF, ACF-T & AMAX-T - Spherical ball is made from 52100 bearing steel, precision ground, surface hardened for wear resistance and hard chrome plated for corrosion resistance.
  • Body is made from 1045 steel and .0003 minimum zinc plated for corrosion resistance. ASPF features an additional Yellow Dichromate supplemental coating.
  • SSF-T - Spherical ball is made from 440C stainless Stainless Steel, precision ground and surface hardened. Body is made of 300 series Stainless Steel.

 


THE FEMALE SERIES ASPF SPHERICAL ROD ENDS features high-strength injection molded self lubricating nylon raceway design. The raceways will withstand temperatures from -30° to 220°F under normal load conditions and will not conduct electricity. They feature high wear resistance and a low coefficient of friction.
