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

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

Global bearing demand to exceed $104bn in 2020

China will remain the largest bearing market in the world and will account for more than a third of total industry demand in 2020

Gear range designed for ultimate gear integration

Precision gearing specialist Harmonic Drive UK has launched IridiumLine, a series of lightweight gears with an extremely large hollow shaft

Dispelling the myths surrounding linear guidance systems

While many engineers are comfortable with rotary bearing technology, they view linear motion systems as complicated and over-engineered with complex maintenance requirements. Bob Love dispels some of the common myths about linear bearing technology

Super precision ball bearings ensure long life of marine gyroscopes

Marine gyroscopes are critical navigational aids that run continuously around the clock. Barney Eley outlines the important factors to consider when selecting the right bearing for a marine gyroscope application

A question of balance

Andrea Masala reports on efficient balancing of active magnetic bearing–supported rotors

Improving car fuel efficiency by 25%

Second-generation Gasoline Technology Car is a 48-volt mild hybrid car

Vibration monitoring of rolling bearings to maximise asset reliability

The results from a series of in-depth studies on the vibration monitoring of rolling bearings in wind turbine gearboxes and generators, have been published in a report by Dr Steve Lacey

Two-speed gearboxes bring flexibility to machine tools

Getting the most out of machine tools means providing the ability to process a range of different materials and to be able to perform both high and low speed cutting. Ian Carr describes how two-speed planetary gearboxes allow the cutting edge power of modern machine tools to be fully realised

Bearings: smaller, faster, hotter

Adding new design features or applying special techniques and coatings to bearing components can optimise the performance of bearings for challenging applications, providing bearing solutions to clients’ problems, says Nick Dowding
