Buying the Right Bearings for Your Equipment to Save Money

September 23, 2021 by SLS

Choosing bearings should be done with care. Because knowing just how to find the right bearings for your equipment can save you money in the long run. There are various types of bearings all designed to carry transmission loads across mechanical components with little friction. Given the large differences in devices and engineering components in need of bearings, they’ve adapted to fit new specifications over the years. Whether it’s the size, the shape, the internal rolling element or even the[...]

Why You Should Invest in High Quality Bearings | SLS Bearings

September 07, 2021 by SLS

Bearings are precision components with a crucial role in manufacturing, so knowing how to find quality bearings in Singapore is vital. Being tasked with ensuring minimal friction between constant moving parts can heavily wear on small components like the bearing. And, whether you choose ball bearings or roller bearings to suit your transmission loads, the quality of your bearings will still be critical to reducing downtime and ensuring the continued running of your machinery. Being the leading[...]

What Are Round Belts Used For?

July 14, 2021 by SLS

For operation, the belts rely on friction to effectively transmit power between wheels, cogs, sprockets, pulleys and more through the drive of a motor. The function in an industrial setting such as textiles, food processing, packaging, chemical plants and so on, is to be able to maintain even power distribution throughout live roller conveyors.

4 Fascinating Facts About Hydraulics

June 30, 2021 by Sabrina Quek

Hydraulics may be one of the most important inventions in the modern world. They are used in a variety of ways, impacting everything we do in our life, from machines used for construction and agriculture, to the cars that we drive and food that we eat. Indeed, without hydraulics, our world would be a very different place.   Hydraulics may not be a very well known topic to some, while others would associate it with just the industrial sector. However, there are more surprising facts when it[...]

Belt Length Measuring Technique For a Successful Replacement

May 28, 2021 by SLS

A belt is a crucial component for ensuring a mechanical system works seamlessly in transferring power and movement from one pulley or sprocket to another. This typically occurs in the case of one pulley being attached to a power or motor source and the other being attached to other processes in the conveyor belt chain that continue output and workflow in an industrial sense. However, drive belts, whether they’re V-shaped belts, round belts, toothed belts or flat belts will wear over time. Some[...]

What Causes Roller Bearings to Fail and Break?

May 10, 2021 by SLS

Roller bearings are small components of a mechanical process calling for the combination of two parts with frictionless resistance. While cheap as a part, their failure can be the root cause of thousands in downtime. This frictionless resistance (or, more so, friction-reduced resistance) is a critical part to ensuring infrastructure remains consistent with low assessments for damage. This is because, typically, a ball bearing or roller bearing in Singapore will feature an inner ring with[...]
