Fluro Metric Rod Ends and Spherical Plain Bearings

Company History

In 1973 by Martin and Ernst Höhn founded Martin Höhn GmbH (Ltd.).Producing precision parts in a garage with turning-, milling-, grinding-, boring machines and lathes they soon were managing a staff and more machines are put into operation.

In 1976 in Fluro and Rosenfeld was founded as the FLURO Gelenklager (Spherical Plain Bearings ) GmbH to create a separate product line of spherical plain bearings and rod ends. After just one year, all tools and equipment were ready and the first products were ready for delivery.

Today Fluro has expanded to a total of 8000 square meters of factory area and together FLURO Gelenklager GmbH and Martin Höhn GmbH employ more than 120 staff.

Philosophy

As it comes to plain bearings and rod ends, the name FLURO enjoys an excellent reputation. They offer an impressive range of standard parts and are also able to make even the most unusual parts on demand.

From the beginning FLURO have strived to offer quality, speed and flexibility and provide their clients the best advice and every possible support.

FLURO is a family owned company and they combine continuity and cohesion on a human level, both internally and externally. The combination of learning aptitude and open mindedness to new techniques guarantees success.

Fluro Rod Ends & Spherical Plain Bearings for Motorsport

Characteristics of MS - Series:

Fluro Rod Ends MotorsportPreloaded bearing fit

An internal play with 'zero' tolerance is achieved through a preloaded bearing. Under normal permissible conditions and usage a minimal settlement of the bearing components or a minimal tolerance increase at the mating surface will take place. This special bearing technology causes a considerably higher bearing life with continuous low internal clearance. However MS-Spherical Plain Bearings are not suited for rotation as well as very high swivel frequency.

Please note that the series GXO..ICR(RR) is not a preloaded bearing version, but the clearance is reduced to a minimal fit.

Fluro Rod Ends MotorsportSurface

The nickel plated housing surface with a high polish finish achieves a sporty appealing design, especially on visible components. This high-quality surface treatment with high corrosion resistance minimizes the sedimentation of dirt and is easy to clean.

Lubrication

Maintenance Free Rod Ends and Spherical Plain Bearings must not be lubricated. The ball revolves on a PTFE liner incorporated in the Insert.

Examination

Materials

Housing: Stainless Steel to 1.4057, Aisi 432 forged, polished

Insert: Stainless Steel to 1.4571, Aisi 316Ti with PTFE liner with stainless steel fabric

Ball: Stainless Steel to 1.4401, Aisi 316 ground, polished

A combination of a high strength housing and a high corrosion resistance enables use in a variety of applications.

As with other stainless steels there is still the danger of corrosion depending on the substances it is exposed to, eg galvanic corrosion, crack corrosion etc.

To achieve a higher corrosion protection the following should be observed

  • Protection with Fluro Boots and Seals
  • Management of current leakage
  • Cathodic corrosion protection
  • Avoid cracks
  • Mating components should be of same or compatible material

 

Other materials available upon request.
