In association with the Institute for Composite Materials, the Industrieanzeiger and the Technical University of Cologne, the manus award honours plastic plain bearing
applications that are characterised by technical prowess and economic efficiency, as well as the creativity of the developer.
Therefore, improving the seizure and wear performance of automotive plain bearings
is a continuously evolving challenge .
Then according to the volume fraction of the fibers in the warp and fill directions, the stiffness matrices of the woven fabric liners of spherical plain bearing
with self-lubricating can be calculated by
Matching dynamic loads from carbon sails has dictated changes in how they are handled--with harder metal bearings, composite bearings and different configurations of roller and plain bearings
used, so choosing the correct block configuration is certainly important.
KS Gleitlager GmbH is presenting its entire product range of high-duty plain bearings
Polymer researcher and bearings specialist igus UK has introduced a new heavy-duty plastic plain bearing
. The lubricant and maintenance-free iglidur Q2 bearing is made of a completely new tribological material mix that igus turns into low-price polymer plain bearings
using injection moulding.
The ELGES range of rod ends from Schaeffler (UK) Ltd is made from alloy steel and comprises a housing with internal or external threaded stem (spigot) and a maintenance-free spherical plain bearing
Thus the plain bearing
shell blanks are subjected to a series of cleaning processes: they pass through a normal cleaner; onto a clean room for plasma cleaning; final cleaning in the deposition plant where a number of atom layers are stripped from the shells.
"A competitive market and high production costs at the Puttlingen plant as well as the currency development has negatively impacted profitability, making cost saving measures necessary to restore profitability for the plain bearing
business," SKF explained.
Relocating to Central Park will enable us to further our existing reputation for excellence in plain bearing
"It's used to clean up, deburr, or size, the bore of a bronze or Babbitt plain bearing
," says Vern Notestine, Frankenmuth, Mich.
For this purpose the company has now acquired the plain bearing
operations of Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd.
For example, if there is purely a large load, a roller bearing or a plain bearing
would be the most appropriate; or if the application in question is operating at an extremely high speed, a ball bearing or even a ceramic balled bearing could be best suited.
A revised assembled roller bearing camshaft design--the bearings are fitted directly onto the camshaft without an inner ring--replaced the plain bearing
configuration and a 5-micron thick diamond-like coating was added, resulting in a 30% reduction in camshaft friction.
Further fuel savings have been discovered on the powertrain side by replacing traditional plain bearing
camshaft configurations with needle bearings, which have better friction characteristics.
