The classic bearing position in the mechanical engineering textbook provides for a simple shaft in a ball or needle roller bearing that is mounted in a radial direction. But what if the bearing position must be supported axially? It is not uncommon for bolts or rods to be supported at the ends in an axial […]
The design rules for the most cost-effective injection moulding designs apply to plain bearings in particular, to wear-resistant parts in general and to all other components anyway. The pressure to save costs is particularly high for plain bearings and wear-resistant parts. As “disposable parts”, these should last as long as possible, but also cost as […]
A decisive point for the smooth application of the beer lift is the use of the correct high-helix thread system. The length of the lead screw is approx. 1 metre. In order to be able to guarantee the service life as long as possible, there are two important points to consider.
