Macroeffect of microgeometry

The top priority of modern machine-building production is continuous monitoring of product quality, one of the most important parameter of which is microgeometry. Surface microirregularities formed during machining have a determining influence on the bearing operation in the future. Increased values of parameters such as roughness, profile,...

Innovative monitoring system ensures longer service life for rotors and reduced downtimes in wind turbines

Schaeffler PREMESY monitors bearing preload in wind turbines during assembly and operation High-precision, digital distance sensors and a monitoring unit are key components of the system Continuous monitoring makes it possible to implement predictive maintenance The rotor shaft bearing support plays a key role in wind turbines....

SKF has created a new product!

SKF created a new product with only the modification of the tapered roller bearings with an excellent, robust seal (SKF CR seal). The bearings mounted in this way are able to operate flawlessly in a polluted environment for more than 600 hours – 10 times longer than...

Regina conveyor chains

Manufacture of Regina conveyor chains began back in the early 1980s, and the company has since made significant contributions to the technological innovation of the design and development of conveyor chain products. The Regina conveyor chains are particularly known for their reliability and for being made with...

Roller chain stiffening? Here’s what to do

Your roller chain is an essential part of your power transmission drive, and it’s crucial that it operates smoothly. Over time, with roller chain stiffening, links in the chain and sprockets will experience undue stress. Baart recommend addressing any problems with chain stiffness quickly to prevent permanent...

Bad timings that signals you to change your timing belts the UK

The timing belt is a significant part of an internal combustion engine that is in sync with the rotation of the crankshaft, helping engines to open and shut the valves according to their accurate timings. With time, these timing belts experience wear and tear. The Timing Belts UK Suppliers...

Bosch Rexroth CE partner – Certified excellence partner

In March 2021, Laeppche received an award as a Certified Excellence Partner from Bosch Rexroth. Bosch Rexroth selected the CE partners on the basis of several criteria. The decisive factor was the high performance and solution competence for applications in industry, linear and assembly technology as well...

Factors to consider when choosing chain sprocket suppliers

In any industrial space, the use of turbines, motors, and other such engineering devices that produce mechanical rotational motion is a common sight. In order to produce this motion to perform the necessary task, chain sprockets are widely used. Hence, you will need to connect with the...

The Importance of bearing maintenance

Predictive maintenance services should always encompass bearing usage and operation to ensure the continued and effective running of your mechanical components. Bearings, while only a fractional and relatively inexpensive component of the entire mechanical operation, hold the highest dispensation for downtime and can be the root cause...
