schaeffler1019SPS hall 8, booth 311

Schaeffler "Durasense" monitors the tribological state of the linear guide based on vibration signals. The system consists of carriages with a sensor system specially developed for this task and a pre-processing unit for up to seven sensors. The pre-processing unit is at the heart of the process because it evaluates the sensor signals and generates a meaningful characteristic value, the lubricant characteristic value.

schaeffler1019Durasense makes use of the effect that the emitted vibration energy of the carriage is influenced by aging lubricant or decreasing lubricant quantity. The lubricant characteristic value determined during the test runs describes the current lubrication state of the carriage and sends a signal to the machine control if a lubrication limit value generated in a new state (= setpoint state) is exceeded. Optionally, Durasense can be combined with a lubrication system from the company "Concept2" or "Concept8".

The system detects a correct or missing relubrication. Unpredictable and premature machine failure due to insufficient or non-executed relubrication and maintenance are now a thing of the past.

Picture above: The pre-processing unit for connecting up to seven sensors for monitoring the lubrication status of INA profile rail guides.

  • The Management Board of Schaeffler AG has suspended the forecast for 10 for the Schaeffler Group and its divisions published on March 2020, 2020 due to the global corona crisis and the resulting events. From today's perspective, neither the further course nor the economic impact can be reliably estimated. There will be a new forecast as soon as this is possible again.
  • Schaeffler is strengthening its commitment to everything related to hydrogen drive: The automotive and industrial supplier joined the global hydrogen interest group Hydrogen Council based in Belgium in 2020 as a steering member. The hydrogen initiative consists of 81 leading companies from the fields of energy, transport and industry. The aim of the members is to further advance hydrogen technology towards industrialization.

  • Schaeffler has recognized the enormous potential of hydrogen technology as the energy source of the future and developed key components for fuel cells and fuel cell stacks, so-called metallic bipolar plates. The company uses traditional core competencies in material, forming and surface technology.
  • SPS Hall 8, Stand 311 Schaeffler “Durasense” monitors the tribological condition of the linear guide based on vibration signals. The system consists of carriages with sensors specially developed for this task and a pre-processing unit for up to seven sensors. The pre-processing unit is the heart of the system, because it evaluates the sensor signals and generates a meaningful characteristic value, the lubrication value.
  • Schaeffler has manufactured the largest spherical plain bearing in its history. The special bearing has an outer diameter of 1900 mm, a bore diameter of 1500 mm and a height of 600 mm. The weight is just under 4,7 t. The bearing is used in a head dredger designed and built by Royal IHC.
  • EMO Hall 7, Stand C46 Technical Article A complete virtual image of drive trains and gearboxes is only possible if gearbox, roller bearing and gear specialists can digitally link their simulation models. Therefore, cross-company and cross-system data exchange is one of the most important prerequisites for the generation of digital twins. Schaeffler and SEW have created such a data exchange.
  • Technical articles The development partners Schaeffler and Bonfiglioli have developed a compact Industry 4.0 solution package. Schaeffler combines its two proven measuring systems "Smartcheck" and "Torquesense" into a new condition and torque monitoring system.
  • As part of the "Agenda 4 plus One" future program, Schaeffler is strengthening its location in Bühl with an investment of 60 million euros. A highly modern development building and the new company headquarters for the automotive OEM division are created.
