Rolling Bearing Performance Rating Parameters Review and Engineering AssessmentThe main function of rolling bearings is to support load and transmit rotational movement with minimum energy loss. In order to achieve this, bearings are manufactured with particularly good quality fatigue resistance materials, proper design and tight manufacturing tolerances. Particular emphasis is put in both the macro, and micro geometry of the working shapes and surfaces of the raceways. Rolling bearings come in many types and sizes as ball and roller bearings for radial and thrust loads.
How to choose the right couplingCouplings are differentiated by the functional benefits they provide to specific applications. Proper selection between flexible and rigid couplings should include comparison of features required and the value those features offer.
MECHANICAL CIRCUIT BREAKER FOR EASY TORQUE OVERLOAD PROTECTION
The R+W TORQSET series STN uses spring loaded drive ball modules which disengage within milliseconds of reaching a predetermined overload torque value, preventing damaging torques from being transmitted down the drive line. This protects gearboxes, belts, chains, and drive shafts from failure, and instead offers a fast and simple re-engagement without the need for any special tools...
