There is probably nothing worse than a non-functional format adjustment that brings the entire production line to a standstill. You want to focus on the important things, not maintain and grease metallic lead screw nuts.
When a new product is being developed or shortly before a food, packaging, or beverage machine test phase, receiving prototype samples of a plain bearing or other components as quickly as possible can be very important. iglidur polymer bar stock allows such components to be manufactured easily … with no minimum order quantity. It is […]
The number of plain bearing solutions is virtually infinite, and there are no fewer designs of suitable – and unsuitable – shaft materials. In fact, different shaft materials and their coatings can create completely different wear patterns for the same plain bearing. This blog entry will deal with two frequently used shaft coatings and consider […]
The travel of single-axis motion systems is typically either rotary (in an arc or circle) or linear (a straight line). But some applications need a system that combines straight movement sections with curved ones. There are two types of curved systems. There are simple sections with constant radii. These are 90 or 180-degree curves with […]
