“Maintenance-free” is an industry-wide term used to describe plain bearings and rod ends with self-lubricating sliding contact surface combinations.
These so-called maintenance-free bearings and rod ends offer a number of advantages for OEMs and end users alike. These advantages, which include minimal maintenance and reduced lubricant consumption, quickly compensate for the difference in the initial purchase price. And of course, the impact that maintenance-free bearings have on the environment is an added benefit.
