Loosen rusted parts easily
Monday, March 16, 2020

Metal parts and equipment that have been exposed to the elements over time often become rusted and frozen. The rust and other deposits build up with age, misuse or neglect. These stuck parts make what should be a routine repair or replacement job a nightmare. A wrench could work on its own, or, if that doesn’t work, you could try a drill, hammer or chisel – but this all takes time and effort. In addition, all this struggling can end up in broken part, equipment or injury. ..

A Move Towards Eco-Friendly Bearings
Monday, February 17, 2020

In the past few decades, there has been a global shift towards greener, more eco-friendly business models. The growing amount of scientific evidence proves that industrialised nations are having a negative impact on the future health of our planet. This has put a fair amount of pressure on industrial companies to find cleaner solutions for their production methods.  ..

Clamping Down On Counterfeit Bearings
Monday, February 03, 2020

As we’ve discussed before, fake or counterfeit products are an enormous problem in almost every market and unfortunately this issue extends far into the industrial market, particularly with bearings. Evidence proves that, despite various attempts to educate customers, counterfeit bearings continue to flood the market. This is a major concern. Fake products cause a potential safety risk for applications that rely on good quality manufacturing and materials to function correctly.  ..

Roller Chains: Keeping Your Machines In Motion
Monday, October 14, 2019

Roller chains, also known as bush rollers, offer a simple and efficient solution for transmitting power as well as coupling a motor to its load. They are used in many types of common machines, from the more domestic such as cars, motorcycles and bicycles, to large industrial and agricultural applications such as printing presses and conveyers.  ..

Understanding Elastomeric Couplings
Monday, October 07, 2019

A coupling is a mechanical device that is used to connect two rotating shafts together, allowing them to transmit power. Elastomeric couplings, which fall under the category of flexible (non-metallic) couplings, are designed to not only transmit torque, but to accommodate for varying degrees of misalignment (up to 3 degrees) between the shafts as well.  ..

An Introduction To Rod End Bearings
Monday, September 30, 2019

Rod end bearings are mechanical joints that, while common and widely used, are essential in nearly all mechanical devices that require mechanical controls. Also known as heim joints (after their North American patent) or rose joints (after their British patent), rod end bearings are typically found in steering links, control rods, and tie rods – basically where any precision articulating joint is required or where a clevis end cannot be used.  ..

All You Need To Know About Needle Roller Bearings
Monday, September 09, 2019

Needle roller bearings are the smallest and lightest of the roller bearing family, which includes tapered, cylindrical and spherical roller bearings. In recent years, needle roller bearings have become the popular choice for design engineers and are being recognised for their technical advantages within specific applications. Their small, long and thin cylindrical rollers have a high length-to-diameter ratio, like a needle – hence their name.  ..

Ball Bearing Failure and Prevention
Monday, September 02, 2019

Research into the manufacture and production of ball bearings has proved that only one percent should fail to reach their full-service life expectancy. That’s a very small percentage, which also proves that if your ball bearings fail, there must be a very good reason. Determining the reason for ball bearing failure can prevent future failures and provide essential information for proper planning and maintenance. ..

A Recap Of Rolling Element Bearings
Monday, August 26, 2019

Bearings, specifically rolling element bearings, are found in nearly everything that has moving and spinning parts, from motors and gearboxes to conveyor systems and industrial machinery. While it’s easy to understand why these components are so common in so many industries, what you may not realise is that each device can be quite different from the other, depending on the specific application for which it has been designed.  ..
