NSK has developed its latest four-row tapered roller bearings for rolling mills to offer a number of class-leading performance and environmental benefits. The work roll bearings use newly developed, water-resistant grease that is fully sealed into the confines of the bearing. With the new bearings, service life is typically doubled in challenging conditions such as those where there is a high risk of water penetration. In addition, the sealed design means that grease consumption is far less than that exhibited by a conventional ‘open’ bearing, while the risk of contaminating the environment is greatly reduced.
Kollmorgen has introduced the next generation of Motioneering, the company’s innovative servo sizing tool. Motioneering was introduced more than 20 years ago – the first tool of its kind – to help mechanical design engineers find the ideal motion products to build into their machines. It streamlines and simplifies the design process by incorporating 100+ years of Kollmorgen expertise about which motion solutions work best for specific applications such as factory automation, robotics, material forming, and many others.
NSK used the recent EMO 2019 exhibition to introduce its optimised RA series of recirculating roller bearing guides with enhanced sealing technology. RA linear roller guides are equipped with new V1 seals and an improved cover, thus helping to increase the service life and reliability of machine tools.
