The surface of the moulding has dents that not only look unsightly but also impair the function. Why is […]
It is not only nerves that are threatened by squeaking plain bearings. Squeaky bearings and bearings that make other noises can be a real noise pollution issue. For this reason, I will take a closer look at the topic of squeaking today. How it is generated and what can be done about it. This podcast […]
Plain bearings are available in many models and differ significantly in technological details. Although rather unknown compared to ball bearings, plain bearing technology is much older and dates back to the year 3000 BC. But what types of plain bearings are there today? Where are they used? And what distinguishes iglidur plain bearings from others? […]
Plain bearings are often exposed to moisture. The effects of moisture are often underestimated. The result: bearing damage, the cause of which can often not be adequately traced in retrospect. If you know the mechanisms and effects of increased moisture in plain bearing applications, you can easily identify potential problems and avoid them in advance […]
The bearing replacement for linear axes with belt drive is usually very time-consuming and complex. But it is easier, faster and cost-effective. How to find out here in this blog.
