Split Roller Bearings: Stronger than Ever

March 12, 2019 by SLS

The split roller bearings technology always come up with new ways to improve on its bearing performance. Previously, we've introduced the standard split roller bearings, a cost-cutting solution with longer bearing life and how they can be your big advantage. There is also another type of split roller bearings- the E-series that have been carefully re-designed to bring more benefits that enable your machinery to reach its full potential.

Split Roller Bearings: Your Big Advantage

January 29, 2019 by SLS

As competition stiffens within your industry, it is essential that all equipment achieve optimal performance and operating to its full potential to be ahead of the game. For many, machine downtime is a constant headache- production loss, additional labor and maintenance cost can result in the overall cost of your operation considerably. As a matter of course, you fall behind the competition.

Why is Normal Clearance No Longer The "Normal"?

April 23, 2018 by Dario Rodriguez

Bearing internal clearance is defined as the total distance through which one bearing ring can be moved relative to the other in the radial direction (radial internal clearance) or in the axial direction (axial internal clearance). Among others, single row ball bearings, double row self-aligning ball bearings, single or double row cylindrical roller bearings, spherical roller bearings and CARB bearings all have a defined internal clearance.

Choosing the Right Bearing Is Not Just About Calculating Its Theoretical Life

March 09, 2018 by Dario Rodriguez

  Machine design engineers and maintenance engineers have to deal with bearings in their rotating machines at different stages, first for the selection and later for maintenance and troubleshooting. The main criteria for selecting the bearings have been calculation of bearing life according to the ISO 281 basic rating life formula:

Protect Your Investment Against Counterfeit Products

September 13, 2017 by SLS

Counterfeit Products- A Global Problem When we hear the word “counterfeit”, most of us would think about clothing, handbags, sport shoes and so on. These unauthorized replicas of these real products are indeed prevalent. In fact, counterfeit products are present in almost every market and it is increasingly becoming a global concern. Similarly, manufacturers are facing the same problems in the mechanical component industry, especially bearings.

Understanding Shaft and Housing Alignment & Fits (to Prevent Bearing Failure)

April 04, 2017 by SLS

    Bearings are manufactured with extreme precision. Therefore, it is necessary to pay strong attention to details to the mounting and maintenance process in order for the bearings to attain its best performance. Otherwise, it will lead to huge problems along the way, such as premature bearing failure and unplanned downtime, which is very costly to your business operation.

Bearing Failure: Lubrication

February 27, 2017 by SLS

  Lubrication is an integral part all machinery, in which anything that involve motion, such as bearings, need lubricant and lubrication activities. According to a variety of studies, improper lubrication tops the list for bearing failures where it accounts for 36%, followed by poor fitting at 16%, while 14% is led by contamination problems and reaching its natural lifespan constitutes 34%.
