Jurong Innovation District (JID) is a next-generation business hub that offers a unique value proposition for businesses and technology partners. JID is developed by Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and supported by government partnerships. Being Singapore's first District designed with an integrated manufacturing approach, with new advanced testing facilities and urban innovations to serve prospective manufacturers.
A ball bearings is a rolling-element bearing that relies on balls to keep the bearing races apart. A ball bearing's job is to decrease rotational friction while also supporting radial and axial stresses. Ball bearings have been around for hundreds of years and have been utilized in various applications — intended to accommodate thrust and radial stresses in everything from hard drives to skateboards. On the other hand, ball bearings are also often used in situations with lower pressures.
Accumulator is installed in hydraulic systems with the idea of conserving or storing energy and smoothening pulsations as efficiently as possible. These are energy-storing devices. They are quite similar to rechargeable batteries that are used in electrical systems. These store and release energy in the form of pressurized fluids and are widely used to improve hydraulic system's efficiency. Accumulator is a pressure vessel that keeps compressed gas (nitrogen) and compressed hydraulic fluid. The[...]
Also known as mechanical bearings, these rolling elements are revolutionizing a multitude of industrial machinery from food to energy and beyond. As Asia's Number 1 mechanical component distributor, the team at SLS Bearings is here to talk about all the ways bearings can and do revolutionize industries around the world. From general ball bearings and roller bearings, these mechanical components are taking the axial loads and radial loads required to help increase the speed, efficiency and power[...]
Predictive maintenance services should always encompass bearing usage and operation to ensure the continued and effective running of your mechanical components. Bearings, while only a fractional and relatively inexpensive component of the entire mechanical operation, hold the highest dispensation for downtime and can be the root cause for many operational failures without the correct maintenance schedule applied. So, it’s vital to be aware of the importance of predictive maintenance services on[...]
Equipment that requires frictionless power transmission needs a specially chosen bearing that is able to handle its operations environment. The bearing selection process takes careful consideration at many angles all the way from the load type in the mechanical operation to the maintenance required to ensure its efficient running. As a bearing supplier in Singapore, SLS has everything you need to know about choosing the right bearing for your machine application, whether you need a frictionless[...]

Precision is the key to minimizing friction in transmission, and bearing lubrication is the answer to ensuring the rolling component keeps on rolling. There are many reasons for bearing failure, from overloading to improper mounting. But lubrication can also be a contributor when using the wrong type, applying it incorrectly or not providing the correct preventative maintenance. To learn more about bearing failure and its reasons, read our other blog “What Causes Roller Bearings to Fail and[...]
