Metal rod end bearing in pantographs

The higher loads that the Metal rod end bearings can cope with also enable their use in railway equipment, among other things. They can be used in pantographs for example.

The flexible components are connected by means of these rod end bearings. The iglidur J inner race ensures electrical decoupling and a long service life.
