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

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

Servo gearboxes offer versatile performance

Suit a wide range of applications, from packaging machines to robots, medical equipment to aerospace, precision engineering and high speed printing presses

Bearings: plain by name, not by nature

Paul Mitchell explains why plain bearings are more interesting and valuable to design engineers than their name might suggest

Free flow conveyor reduces car plant downtime

Robust rollers are resistant to wear, even when a high degree of friction is generated as the crates, which carry small parts through the factory, accumulate on the conveyor

Designing with hybrid bearings

If extreme speeds, temperatures and lifetimes interest you, then you’re at the right place. Erick Sloan writes an engineer’s guide to designing with hybrid bearings
