spherical Male Rod End

Series ASPM, ACM, ACM-T, AMAX-T Spherical Male Rod Ends, Industrial / Commercial, 2 Piece

  • Parts are designed & manufactured to SAE J1120 specifications.
  • ASPM, ACM, ACM-T & AMAXT 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. ASPM features an additional Yellow Dichromate coating.
  • AMAX body is made of alloy steel and Black Oxide plated.
  • SSM-T - Spherical ball is made from 440C Stainless Steel, precision ground and surface hardened. Body is made from 300 series Stainless Steel
Left-hand thread available in all sizes. Left-hand units are marked for easy user identification. (Add suffix "L" to the part number. i.e. ASPML8).

THE MALE SERIES ASPM 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.
