  • 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
  • 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
  • The 10 most-common Mistakes Made When Sizing Pneumatic Rodless Actuators
    Here are some tips for getting the most out of the next rodless actuator you purchase. Edited by Stephen J. Mraz Rodless cylinders both support loads and supply guidance, eliminating the need for other load-bearing elements and reducing costs, size, and design time. Given these advantages, why do
