New needle bearing cam followers

Feature hardened and ground outer race and low-carbon alloy steel hardened studs and inner races, says Quality Bearings and Components

Accessories for miniature linear guides

Schaeffler is introducing a range of accessories for its miniature corrosion-resistant linear ball bearings and guideway systems

LVDTs suit high-frequency measurement tasks

New spring-return LVDTs from RDP Electronics feature a high spring rate and low moving mass so measurements can be made at rates up to 1000Hz

Self-lubricating bearings are corrosion-resistant

NSK is introducing Life-Lube bearing units that are suitable for use in harsh environments and those where frequent washdowns are required

Spherical roller bearings offer performance improvements

X-life versions of Schaeffler Group's FAG E1 spherical roller bearings offer up to 60 per cent longer life, plus higher load ratings and limiting speeds

Roller chain drives offer longer life, even in harsh environments

Roller chains have evolved a long way since Leonardo da Vinci sketched his ideas in the 16th century and Hans Renold invented bush roller chain in 1880. Jon Severn takes a look at some of the latest developments in power transmission and conveyor chains, as well as chain attachments and chain-monitoring sensors

Ball bearings benefit from 30 per cent less friction

SKF's new E2 bearings have a lower frictional moment, which means that they can help to save energy in a variety of applications

Self-aligning bearings cope with axial displacement

SKF is launching a self-aligning bearing system that uses a toroidal roller bearing and a spherical roller bearing to avoid problems with axial displacement

All-in-one unit combines linear slide and actuator

New from Haydonkerk Motion Solutions is a unit that combines a Kerk RGS linear slide with Haydon Motodrive PDE actuator

Linear actuator incorporates linear motor and guide

A new Copley Servotube Module is available with integral linear motor, bearing rail, cable management and optional encoder

The advantages of using an in-house SRP machine

There are significant reasons why a product design company would use an external subtractive rapid prototyping company instead of buying its own CNC milling

Sub-Miniature 10mm and 15mm valve manifolds

Small, compact sub-miniature manifolds are designed for use with Clippards 10 and 15mm solenoid valve series

Electrically insulated bearings prevent damages by electro corrosion

NKE Austria offers electrically insulated bearings which provide optimum protection against damages by undesirable passage of currents

Rotary stages offered in manual and motorised variants

LG Motion is offering the LGR range of precision rotary stages in manual and motorised versions for payloads of up to 500kg

Air bearing stage increases throughput

Aerotech says its new PlanarHD air bearing stage benefits from higher travel speed and acceleration, enabling end users to increase throughput by 50 per cent

Shaft couplings now available in carbon fibre

Bibby's Torsiflex shaft couplings for large equipment are now being manufactured from carbon fibre to reduce weight and boost performance

Magnetic clutches provide non-contact power transmission

Misumi is introducing non-contact, low-wear, TM magnetic clutches for applications where particle generation must be minimised

Metering valves cut lubricant consumption by 25 per cent

Schaeffler's RUE-E linear guidance systems can be fitted with metering valves that ensure adequate lubrication without wasting lubricant

Compact gearhead is exceptionally quiet

Maxon's new Koaxdrive KD 32 uses a worm-formed motor pinion and planetary gearing to deliver high torque and power with very low noise levels
