  • Needle Bearings
    Needle bearings are roller bearings with rollers that have high length-to diameter ratios. They are used in farm and construction equipment, automotive transmissions, small gasoline engines, gear pumps, small appliance and tool motors, alternators, and aircraft controls. Needle bearings are usually
  • Aluminum-Alloy Bearings
    equipment, roll-neck bearings in steel mills, reciprocating compressors, and aircraft equipment. Aluminum alloys require sufficient lubrication, good surface finish, and shafts hardened to about Rockwell B85. They have relatively poor compatibility characteristics and lack embeddability
  • Ultrasonic Cleaning of Aircraft Components
    Many applications exist in the aircraft industry that can benefit from ultrasonic cleaning. Typical applications include brake parts, generator components, actuators, shuttle valves, filters, engine blades and vanes, aircraft wheels and bearings. Turbine blades and nozzle vanes from jet engines
  • Iron-Based Superalloys
    by high temperature as well as room-temperature strength and resistance to creep, oxidation, corrosion, and wear. Wear resistance increases with carbon content. Maximum wear resistance is obtained in alloys 611, 612, and 613, which are used in high-temperature aircraft bearings and machinery parts
  • Fighting friction with solid-film coatings
    . The second reason for using low-friction coatings is to handle applications that can't use fluid as the primary lubricant. Examples include nonmetallic bearings made from fiber, plastic, composites, or paper in instrument and aircraft applications. The coating also reduces friction in the bearing
  • Monitoring Complex Extrusion Machinery Requires Focused Approach
    condition in order to avoid catastrophic failures and the collateral damage which often accompanies these unplanned events. Gearboxes used for extruding plastic pellets are among the most complex industrial machines. With many shafts, more gears and dozens of bearings all sharing one housing
  • Good grease, good landing
    Tests reveal that a new lithium-soap-thickened, synthetic grease may help mission-critical aerospace components keep rolling under extreme loads and corrosive environments. The C-5 galaxy military transport when fully loaded weighs up to 380 tons. E-2C wheel assembly bearings after the wash test
