Fatigue Rated Ball Joints
LINK Fatigue rated ball joints are commonly used in conjunction with either linear actuators or struts in test set-ups that require lateral motions. The ball joint helps protect the actuators or struts from transverse forces and bending moments that may exceed their maximum allowable values.
The precision ball and socket design provide a low mass, high stiffness connection with minimal friction, which improves system controllability. All connections can be preloaded so entire load train avoids dynamic load, providing a true fatigue rated design.
- Compact design, high reliability
- Operate without backlash
- Wide range of applications
- Low friction ball and socket design
- Anywhere a high stiffness, zero backlash pivoting connection is needed
