  • Industrial encoder integrates bearing and sensor functions
    and bearing performance for tough industrial applications. Fafnir Encoder Survivors, from The Torrington Co., Torrington, Conn., integrate bearing and sensing functions in a housed unit to simplify system design and reduce maintenance and assembly costs. The design, based on technology developed
  • Design, Commissioning and Testing of Gas Bearing Turbo Compressors with Gases Other Than Air
    Turbo compressors with gas bearings are not only used for the compression of air with 1 bar ambient pressure, but also for other pressure levels or refrigerants.
  • Basics of Design Engineering: Bearings
    Air bearings for linear applications, segmented bearings that can be installed into hard-to-reach places, and thermoplastic bearings molded with integral pulleys or gear teeth are just a few of the recent developments from bearing manufacturers. Edited by Paul Dvorak, , Kathleen Franzinger Star
  • Design bearings that don't seize
    Opening up running clearances in sleeve bearings helps prevent seizing when oil runs dry. Director, Center for Rotating Machinery A large commercial air conditioner turns on after sitting over winter, but its compressor locks up within seconds of starting. The unit is fairly new and had worked fine
  • Industrial Computer Design
    experience in providing the most efficient computer available. For example, pressure required to move air in a chassis is nonlinear - doubling fan capacity does not double the air delivery. Dynics industrial computers are designed to maximize cooling performance in an intended environment. Lower internal
  • Magnetic Bearings Come Of Age
    More-powerful controllers and better software lead to broader applications for magnetic bearings. Magnetic radial bearings have a stator and rotor. The surface area of the magnetic poles, number of coil windings, air-gap dimensions, and applied voltage and current all affect bearing ratings
  • How to make bearings last in electric motors
    Creating the best possible operating environment lessens the chance of premature bearing failure. Here are some basic guidelines. A deep-groove ball bearing installed on the output shaft of an acinduction motor. The motor end cap supports the bearing outer race. Characteristic fluting caused
  • Plain Bearings Outperform Rolling-Element Bearings
    requirements. * Larger contact areas let plain bearings bear more load, resist shocks, and tolerate misalignment. Basics of Design Engineering: Bearing topics, "Composite bearings keep heavy equipment on track, " MACHINE DESIGN, Nov. 18, 2004, , 700 Mid Atlantic Pkwy., Box 189, Thorofare, NJ 08086
