  • Polymers enhance race-car performance
    piston, O-ring groove, and bearing groove. Top right: New Arlon damper piston with ACT and Ener-Cap seals. In racing, a split second can make the difference between winning and losing, or between a serious accident and a trouble-free ride. That's why race teams in CART, Formula 1, Indy Car, and NASCAR
  • Ball vs Sleeve: A Comparison in Bearing Performance
    As consumers demand smaller, faster computer systems, OEM design engineers race to create systems with compact, more powerful microprocessors and chipsets. However these compressed designs provide engineers with a new enemy...heat. In minutes, densely packaged microprocessors or compact electronic
  • Using Eddy Current Test Techniques to Verify the Number of Bearings in a Bearing Assembly
    techniques to "count" the number of bearings that are present in a race or bearing group. This system operates as follows: 1. A probe containing an eddy current coil, that has been properly sized for the inspection to be conducted, is inserted into a bearing subassembly that has a full compliment
  • Linear-Bearing Design Considerations
    Hardness, finish, and conformity of race and rolling elements determine load capacity, which varies as the fourth power of the race Brinell hardness number. The surface finish must be smooth because grinding marks create ridges that prevent conformity between the race and rolling element
  • Why is My Bearing Cracked?
    new users of spherical plain bearings who are concerned about cracks in the outer ring of the bearings theyâ ve received. Spherical plain bearings (sometimes known as ball bushings or fractured race spherical bearings) all have a split outer ring as a common design feature. To the casual observer
  • Talk About Set Screws
    from each other by 120 degrees and intended to be tightened according to bearing manufacturers specs. They seldom are. All too often they are over tightened causing the inner race of the bearing to deform and become oval. This usually results premature failure. Following bearing manufacturers torque
  • PM automotive parts earn Design Excellence Awards
    to right, foreground: Fracture split cam cap, camshaft bearing cap. Background: One-way clutch race and planetary gear carrier. Automotive Engine Award of Distinction: Fracture split cam cap Automotive Engine Grand Prize: Camshaft bearing cap Automotive Transmission Award of Distinction: One-way
  • Talk About Shaft and Housing Fits and Roundness
    When ball bearings have been processed with CSL, the CSL fills the entire space between the inner and outer race for the width of the bearing. It will mold around the cage and form to the geometry of that space. Since the graphite is a non-flexible solid, its roundness is determined
