Rod Ends, Links , and Spherical Bearings featuring the Dyflon self lubricating Liner used in submarines, rocket motors,aircraft landing gear and nuclear power plants, where premature failure is not an option.
Allied International is the oldest distributor of Southwest Products spherical bearings, rod ends and bushings. We have been supplying OEM's and operators of aircraft and power generation gas turbines like the LM2500 with SWP bearings and bushings for 50 years.
After a production shut down, RBC Bearings purchased the assets of Southwest Products in September 2005. The new company, RBC Southwest Products Inc. continues to manufacture the same quality spherical plain and self lubricating bearings for which Southwest has been justly famous and Allied International continues as an international distributor serving the aerospace, naval and power generation markets.
Southwest Products manufactures the highest quality spherical bearings. Detailed engineering and design is critical to realizing the advantages of advanced materials. SWP engineers use powerful CAD and structural analysis systems backed by 60 years at the leading edge of bearing design. With precision machining of materials such as beryllium copper, inconel, monel, A-286, vascomax and titanium, SWP produces bearing components meeting the highest standards of quality and performance.
SWP self lubricating systems, DYFLON and KENTLON qualified to Mil-B-81820, Mil-B-81934, Mil-B-81935, Mil-B-81936, Mil-B-8942, and Mil-B-8976. Some of these self-lubricating are able to perform successfully in salt water applications, while others are moldable and machineable and still perform under Mil-B-81820 requirements.
Customers with critical applications like the landing gear , space satellite antenna and solar panels deployment,rocket engines , or nuclear power plants for submarine propulsion and power generation know that SWP's time tested swaging methods guarantee superior conformity between ball and race compared to loader slot technology in meeting extremely difficult preload requirements.
