Ken Forging is proud of its reputation as a leading domestic manufacturer of industrial forged hardware — a reputation that it has been building for 47 years. Customers often turn to the Jefferson, Ohio-based company for its superior service and top quality products, including its large selection of eyebolts, turnbuckles, assemblies, fittings, D-Rings, eye nuts, machine shop tools, safety swivel hoist rings and clamps. But its portfolio would not be complete without its broad selection of rod ends, available in a range of sizes, materials and finishes.
A variety of rod ends
Ken Forging can provide rod ends as blanks, or machined to meet customer specifications. Both options are available in several different materials, including 304 and 316 stainless steel, alloy steel 4140, and carbon steel grades C1030-1035 and C1045.
These rod ends are also available in a range of sizes. For example, blank rod ends made from alloy steel 4140 are available with shank diameters ranging from ¼ up to 2-½ inches, weighing from .03 to 23 pounds. Meanwhile, rod ends made from alloy steel 4140 that are machined and black oxided are available with shank diameters and threads from ¼ and 20 inches through to 1-½ and six inches, weighing .03 up to 4.25 pounds.
These products are available in many finishes, such as plain (self coloured), hot dip, electro galvanized and electro polished. In addition, special heat treating processes and custom plating services can be provided.
Ken Forging also offers threading capabilities, including UNC, UNF, metric and ACME.
Ken Forging’s rod end offering adds to the comprehensive selection of drop-forged industrial hardware that enables the company to be a one-stop shop that is dedicated to meeting all customer requirements.
