  • Why are Rod End and Spherical Bearings Teflon-lined?
    A PTFE (Du Pont trademarked product) liner in a spherical bearing or rod end is a component that allows the unit to be "self-lubricating". Metal on metal bearings need to be lubricated. In certain applications this can be difficult to accomplish. Grease lubrication attracts dirt and may prematurely
  • Forklift Tie Rod Saves OEM Cost & Improves Service Life
    Tie rods in forklift steering are traditionally metal-on-metal, which requires periodic re-greasing and leads to a shortened lifespan. They also include a coil spring and two cups behind the ball joint. CCTY Bearing's design utilized a metal on nylon, self-lubricating design that eliminated
  • Rugged Rulon 1337 for slide pads and rolling element retainers
    When a major manufacturer of vacuum chambers required a self-lubricating bearing to replace their failing metal components, we knew Rulon (R) bearings would fit the bill. Our Engineering Experts took a site visit to the client, and recommended Rulon 1337; a material that is comprised solely
