With our centenary now upon us, Lee Spring is proud of our close to 100 year tradition and to reflect on the considerable growth in availability of springs and development in spring technology during that period.
Industrial springs are often seen as just a component or forming part of a sub assembly. For the potential user or equipment designer there appears to be a simple choice to start the selection process.
As part of the training programme for all new sales recruits at igus, managing director Matthew Aldridge sets a project.
Remanufacturing bearings saves money, improves sustainability and can even boost long-term equipment reliability, Phil Burge, Marketing and Communications Manager at SKF explains.
Increasing numbers of smaller, more cost effective telecommunications satellites are being launched into the Earth’s orbit, which has led to a growing need for high precision, high reliability bearings to support on-board sub-systems such as reaction wheels and other critical mechanisms, says Gary Hughes, Product Engineering Manager at Schaeffler subsidiary, The Barden Corporation (UK) Ltd.
John Handley Bearings recently launched its highly anticipated new range of split roller bearings. The industry hype around this product has been growing for months mainly due to the fact that the new range offers an axial load increase of 1,000 percent (yes, you read that correctly!) over any other split bearing available.
Early detection of bearing damage can save a lot of expense, downtime and frustration. Phil Burge, Marketing and Communications Manager at SKF, sets out the case for condition monitoring and explores the factors involved.
Many times, high-performance plastic bearings are confused with PTFE-lined metal-backed bearings, which are a much older technology. Over the past 3 decades, there has been a revolution in the advancement and use of engineering plastics in bearing applications.
Sales at Bridgnorth-based threaded insert manufacturer Fitsco have been high this year but have now – quite literally – gone stratospheric.
