Making Aerospace Bearing Selection Easier Making Aerospace Bearing Selection Easier(0)

Scenario: The sales team wins an order for several mechanical assemblies for a new customer. Promised delivery dates are somewhat close to the wire and the pressure to deliver is now immediately placed on the engineering design teams. The sales team is celebrating their win and the design team is burning the midnight oil working […]

How to Extend the Life of Your Slewing Ring Bearings How to Extend the Life of Your Slewing Ring Bearings(0)

by Ronald L. Shaw, Kaydon Industrial Bearings Premature failure is a common fate for large-diameter (e.g., 8″ to 10′) bearings in heavy-duty applications where rotations are frequent. In big rotating equipment, such as cranes, excavators and tunnel boring machines, a slewing ring bearing must simultaneously handle a complex load spectrum that covers diverse combinations of thrust, […]

Polyamide cages deliver stiffness, flexibility and oil resistance in ball bearings Polyamide cages deliver stiffness, flexibility and oil resistance in ball bearings(0)

Polyamide (PA) is playing a key role in enhancing fuel economy through its usage as cage material for tandem pinion ball bearings in passenger car axles including the one in the 2013 Ford C520 Escape. The 30% glass fiber-reinforced grade Stanyl TW200F6 PA46 from DSM Engineering Plastics (Birmingham, MI) contributes to a 1.5% saving in […]

Bearing Failure Percentages Bearing Failure Percentages(0)

Did you know that over 60% of bearing failures are due to Poor Fiting, Poor Lubrication or Contamination? Only 34% of bearings ever see their Fatique limit and ‘wear out’. Are you taking all the correct measures to ensure you too do not get caught with downtime due to bearing failure? Maintenance Matters! Below is […]
