Drones benefit from motion plastics
Effective pest control can often be difficult, especially if surrounding areas must not be affected. The FitoStinger drone was developed exactly for this purpose. Its lightweight design is partly attributed to motion plastics from Igus that include the extremely light drylin linear guide made of (more...)
Increasing machine life with hybrid bearings
Hybrid bearings have been shown to perform well under poorly lubricated and contaminated conditions and are much less prone to surface distress than their all-steel counterparts. Phil Burge of SKF explains the structure and materials of hybrid bearings and how these features help extend machine (more...)
Choosing the right bearing material for the application
Choice is good. Choice is healthy. Having options allows us to select the most relevant, the most efficient, the most cost-effective, the most attractive, and the most compatible option. Looking at bearing choice in particular, Craig Clydesdale of Bowman International explores the benefits of (more...)
Linear guides with different radii from Igus
With the introduction of an adaptable drylin W carriage for linear guides with different radii, it is now possible for designers to create a guide system that goes smoothly into a curve from a straight line. This opens up numerous options in industry, ranging from office furniture to stage equipment (more...)
Stainless channels for combined roller bearings
Combined Roller bearings and mating steel profiles are components of both vertical and horizontal heavy duty sliding systems. Due to popular demand Euro-Bearings is now able to offer one size of channel in stainless steel (AISI304L) from stock, with a range of matching pre-mounted bearings and (more...)
Five reasons to replace PTFE-lined bearings
Robert Dumayne of Igus uncovers the top five reasons for replacing PTFE-lined bearings with engineering plastic options. Many times, high-performance plastic bearings are confused with PTFE-lined metal-backed bearings, which are a much older technology. Over the past three decades there has been a (more...)
Linear motion expert HepcoMotion will be making its debut appearance at the Advanced Engineering Show. With over 42 major product lines with thousands of individual components in various sizes, Hepco has a wide range of products to meet practically any requirement. Key products on the stand include (more...)
The heat is on
Heat, either directly applied or generated in service, plays a key role in the life of a bearing, being both beneficial and potentially detrimental at different stages of its lifecycle. Phil Burge of SKF explains how heat can be used beneficially in bearing installation, and describes the negative (more...)
Using Vee bearings and T-rails
Gerry Smith of Euro-Bearings offers hints and advice on installing linear systems. Vee bearings and T-rails offer the user a simple way of constructing smooth running linear systems with a high load capacity and, in the case of the stainless steel version, corrosion resistance too. So let’s (more...)
PEEK lined bearings suit high temperature tasks
Bowman International has introduced a range of high temperature, self-lubricated PEEK-lined steel or bronze backed wrapped bearings. The W/MP range is designed to combine the durability and anti-corrosive properties of Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK), with the production and cost reduction benefits (more...)
