Schaeffler has launched a completely new high-speed spindellager series in the EMO 2017 X-life quality For Machine Tools presented. Spindle manufacturers can significantly increase the mechanical and thermal load capacity of their existing series without any structural changes. Thanks to the high-performance variant VCM, the new series opens up completely new design freedom for spindle manufacturers.
The lubricant and maintenance-free Polymer Round Table Bearings (PRT) from Igus are preferably used in plants in which great robustness and load-bearing capacity are required. To ensure that the bearing does not fail and the plant does not stop unplanned, the plastic specialist has the intelligent "Isense PRT"Developed. This sensor measures the abrasion of the bearing with a sensor and indicates a required exchange in time.
SKF is currently developing a new generation of SNL-bearing housings in the market. The improved SNL family will gradually replace the SE series. The upcoming SNL bearing housings have the same dimensions as current SE variants, so that replacement is possible without any problems.
Schaeffler Has developed "Vacrodur" a rolling bearing material with which the machine tool manufacturer can significantly increase the load capacity of the spindles and significantly extend their service life even under the most difficult conditions. Lower unit costs, longer machine running times and higher availability are the advantages for the machine tool.
With its comprehensive portfolio, Rodriguez Optimally meet all bearing requirements for machine tools. These include the high-precision Axial-Radial cylindrical roller bearings from Unitec RTB series In a new design. These are suitable for use in rotary tables and swivel heads of machine tools.
Igus It also calls "dry sliding": the storage of shafts or axles in the linear and drive technology. As with all bearings, a distinction is made here between the two types of plain bearings and antifriction bearings according to the principle of action. While ball bearings are often used as a measure of all things, there is an ever-increasing number of applications that speak for the plain bearings thanks to innovative high-conduction plastics.
