Specific solutions for the industry

We have been dealing with rod ends and spherical bearings for a good eight decades. While these were initially used in the aircraft industry under the name SCHLEGEL with integrated self-aligning ball bearings, DURBAL heavy-duty rod ends and spherical plain bearings meanwhile stand for quality, reliability and precision in all industrial sectors.

As a member of the Nadella Group, Durbal Metallwarenfabrik GmbH and the entire DURBAL team stand by the production site in Öhringen, which has been our home since 1959.
