The xiros bearing, which … [Read more...] about Wear-resistant and quiet: igus develops a new two-component ball bearing
A full line of miniature high-precision sapphire and ruby balls for use in instruments, metering equipment, and other precision mechanisms where low friction bearings, long-life, and dimensional accuracy are important, have been introduced by Meller … [Read more...] about Sapphire and ruby balls: miniature, precise, and non-magnetic
Industrial applications in challenging environmental conditions call for special bearing solutions. Bearing manufacturer NKE Austria GmbH has developed hybrid bearings for precisely these applications. Their advantages are presented here. NKE … [Read more...] about Hybrid bearings from NKE are suitable for tough industrial applications
Where accuracy is required, it is important for engineers to consider the forces acting on a bearing. Because a bearing typically supports the free motion of a shaft about an axis of rotation, two forces normally act on the bearing: a radial load and … [Read more...] about Radial and thrust forces in bearings
