Things to bear in mind for the food sector

Chris Johnson explains the considerations manufacturers must take when choosing bearings and lubrication in the food and beverage industry

Bearing rotates quickly, wears slowly

Tested against sintered bearings and found even more cost-effective

Pushing the boundaries of bearing performance

By monitoring super precision bearings with smart sensor technologies, aircraft operators can estimate the useful remaining life of bearings, says Jon Everett


Better bearings brought to market

High-performance steel doubles life of axlebox bearings for high load applications

Creative cage design

Craig Clydesdale reports on an innovative new advance in bearing cages

Electric clutch drives: alternative options

Drive forward hybrid transmissions technology

316 grade stainless steel ball bearings

For applications in food processing, chemical manufacture, pharmaceutical production, liquid process applications

Rolling bearing selection - look at the bigger picture

When selecting rolling bearings for industrial plant, machines and equipment, it is important to analyse the total cost of ownership not just the purchase price of the bearings, says Dr Steve Lacey

Liquid cooling halves component space

Steve Hughes explores the three key factors that make water-cooling beneficial to electrical engineers

From local to cloud-based condition monitoring

Condition monitoring no longer needs to be restricted to highly skilled, experienced engineers. With the advent of cloud-based CM systems, users can now share data with experts via the cloud, enabling improved fault diagnosis, faster reaction times and reduced machine downtime, says Dr Steve Lacey

Brakes use an electromagnetic coil

Unlike the brakes fitted to road-going vehicles, forklift brakes tend to require spring applied operation

Cam clutch provides integral backstop for dual or tandem drives

Provides a combination of a centrifugal lift-off cam clutch and a coil spring torque limiter function BR-HT TL and TR

Wire race bearings with direct drive combine light weight and high dynamics

Applications include filling stations, pick-and-place machines for PCB assembly and initial prototypes of electric vehicles

Redesigning the gear

Graham Mackrell explains a new development in strain wave gearing

Food and packaging bearing material

Tribopolymer meets the requirements of FDA and EC directive 10/2011, achieving low wear rates

Correct installation of bearings maximises operating life in critical applications

In order to exploit the full potential that bearings have to offer, they must be correctly installed by using the appropriate tools. The repercussions of a poorly mounted bearing can be catastrophic, says Martin Wakelin

The evolution of industrial brake technology

Steve Powell tracks the evolution of industrial brake technology over the past 45 years, and highlights some of the key technical and commercial changes which have occurred

Benefits for all with lean manufacturing

Hamish Oag looks at the introduction of Lean Principles in a manufacturing environment and the benefits to both the business and the customer

One-way roller clutches

Roller clutches transfer a torque in one direction and move freely in the opposite direction
