Spherical roller bearings withstand harsh environments
Bearings : 06 November, 2016
NSK has developed new spherical roller bearings for conveyor belt drive pulleys used in harsh environment applications that offer simple installation and excellent sealing efficiency. Although ideal for new-build conveyors, the use of standard, ISO-compatible dimensions means they can also be retrofitted to existing conveyor systems.
Free booklet explains bearing designation systems
Bearings : 05 January, 2016
A compact, 48-page booklet has been published by NSK that explains bearing designations in concise and clear terms, thus making it easier for engineers to choose bearings and order spare parts.
Plastic bearings - tribo makes all the difference
Bearings : 08 September, 2014
Rob Dumayne, Director at Igus, reviews the latest developments in plastic bearings, and how industrial manufacturers can use them to produce cost savings while increasing their environmental credentials.
Dry running linear guides and bearings last in wooden pallet production
Bearings : 03 September, 2013
Aloysius Krenzer KG produces euro pallets and bespoke wooden pallets with a high degree of automation.
