Lars Butenschön | 28. October 2022

It is an absolutely routine process, but one that is often neglected for “unimportant” components: Optimising procurement and unit costs for sliding bushes. These components are often purchased from intermediaries, who add a certain margin. Requirements are generally linear and therefore relatively easy to plan. Part value is usually so low that the procurement costs […]

Locating spigot for bushings? This is how it works:

Lars Butenschön | 9. September 2022

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 […]

Powder coating as wear protection? – That's how it works!

igu-blog-adm | 2. August 2022

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. […]
