There are many reasons for fixing bushings in the axial direction. If excessive forces act in the axial direction or external influences have a negative effect on the press-fit of the bearings, bushings are at risk of being pushed out of the bearing point. As a result, the shaft rotates in the housing hole “without […]
Hardly any industry can do without electric motors in the entire value-added process and the demands placed on products are constantly increasing. Similarly, the requirements for the various components of the drives are also increasing in order to ensure smooth production processes, including for the bearing of components, namely ball bearings for electric motors. But […]
Our world is constantly on the move and the machines that meet our needs are running around the clock. And regardless of whether it is guide rollers, construction machines or robots, where things are in motion, there is friction between the materials, which in some cases are exposed to high loads as a result. Every […]
Powder lacquering, also known as powder coating, can be easily applied to conductive materials by means of electrostatic charging. For this purpose, the component is charged and the powder is applied using a spray gun in the tribo or corona charging process. The powder adheres to the component and thus builds up a uniform layer. […]
As an industry expert and product manager for heavy-duty plain bearings at igus GmbH, Uwe Sund encounters these challenges every day in his work with manufacturers of machines and vehicles for agriculture, construction and forestry. In the interview, he explains how manufacturers can prevent complaints due to insufficient lubrication.
