coupling fastener

The industry has become a great demand for new innovative couplings due to the variety of appliances that require them. Couplings are parts that are most often found to connect shafts to transmit power in many essential products. As these vital appliances become larger and larger there is a greater need for customized couplings.Couplings have been incorporated in early appliances from cotton mills to wind mills.  Due to the invention of the steam turbine this has increased the size of power operated machinery therefore increased the size of couplings as well.

"This in turn has greatly increased the demands on shafts and couplings, and in the case of bolted couplings, on the bolts themselves.”

Having the correct coupling is a crucial part to having to maintain shaft alignment.  The alignment in marine applications are a little more lenient when it comes to allowing vibration in result causing much more stress on the bearing. Unlike the marine products, power generation applications are a non-tolerant area of such vibrations. Vibrations in these parts are known to affect the ability of the turbine to reach its full power. To take precaution to avoid the vibrations companies have turned to installing optimizing shaft alignment.

“There is still scope for further analysis and it would be helpful to see exactly how the newer design of bolts with expanding sleeves compare to the older bolts when it comes to transmitting higher torque,” adds Walsh. “Having a full FE analysis could be a significant advantage since it shows the potential for reducing the number of bolts and size of the coupling, particularly in industries such as wind turbines, where they tend to avoid bolted couplings due to space restrictions.”

As vessels and machinery enlarges throughout the years there will always be a need for couplings of a different sizes and outputs.

spherical bearings

Well known bearing companies Dupont an American company and Fujian Longxi Bearing (Group) Corporation Limited (LS) from China have joined forces to be able to create a new innovative bearing to bring to the industry. Them both have created a self-lubricating bearing that is meant to be able to enhance capability and be able lower the amount of maintance cost for corporations due to its self-lubrication properties.

This new innovative bearing has been designed to be incorporated in the airframe control systems.  These bearings will be a huge contribution to aircraft applications that pertain to certain aircraft functions. This bearing will be a crucial part for landing gear in the aircraft.One of the big reasons for having Fujian Longxi on board with the bearing project was due to it being the only Navair certified company in China.

“The DuPont™ Vespel® bearing liner has been successfully applied to the Fujian Longxi spherical bearing, allowing the bearings to meet the stringent new standards of SAE AS81820 type “A” attaining maintenance free certification for 4 times if the industry average. This means longer maintenance intervals, meaning lower cost in operation, less maintenance time, and more time in the air!”

Many company and owners are caught the low cost in maintance intervals when they are aware of the innovative bearing which reduces intervals. The average interval that the standard bearing can under go before having to need maintance is at an approximate 25,000 cycles. With the new innovative self-lubricating bearing the average intervals it is able to reach a 100,000 before it requires maintance, almost three times as much!DuPont™ Vespel® CP materials has ventured out from its usual production of aircraft engines to be able to join in with the production of the bearing.

“DuPont Performance Materials (DPM) is a leading innovator of thermoplastics, elastomers, renewably-sourced polymers, high-performance parts and shapes, as well as resins that act as adhesives, sealants, and modifiers.”

Fujian Longxi Bearing Is the essential bearing part to this partnership. “Fujian Longxi Bearing (“LS”) specializes in the production of spherical plain bearings (SPB), tapered roller bearings, gears, gearboxes, and automobile parts.”

west ham stadium

Lesjöfors manufacturer company, European Springs & Pressings Ltd has been added to the team of renovation for the West Hams Home Field in Upton Park, United Kingdom. This stadium can withhold 60,000 people till capacity that had been runned down former Olympic stadium that was in need of a renovation. Fabric Architecture led the renovation project one of the well-known fabric structures specialist in their region.

Their plans were to renovate the stadium by implanting immense fabric canopies over a vast number of retractable seats. In doing so the Fabric Company were forced to create an alternative spring solution that was able to be incorporated well with the stadiums engineering requirements.

European Springs & Pressings Ltd recently invested in a new Fortuna Machine that created it easier for the company to be able to release springs at specific specifications for the stadium project. It has been said to that,

“the new machine has expanded the Cornish company’s wire coiling capabilities to include wire from 0.3mm – 26mm, consequently opening up new markets across multi-industries.”

The manager director and company, European Springs believe that their success to their company is based on the training of machinery,

“Investing in skills training and machinery is part of an ongoing growth strategy for the organization that has seen us grow from a GB£800,000 operation to a turnover of GB£7.5 million over the last 15 years.”

They take pride in their work and are able to their results show for it. Fabric Architecture is impressed by their contribution to the project. The design and engineering director of the Fabric Architecture stated that

“European Springs & Pressings were fast, efficient and very knowledgeable in assisting us to design a system that helped dissipate the loads from the canopies.”

mahle diesel engine bearing

MAHLE Engine Components has announced that a lead-free bearing system has been developed by combining highly engineered polymeric coatings with a robust lead-free bearing lining in order to accommodate heavy-duty truck engines. This new system promises to deliver improved performance over the existing bearing linings that include lead.

James George the head of product technology at MAHLE Rugby, U.K. explained that Polymer technology is the preferred medium for light and medium-duty engines under 10 liters in displacement and that the need to adopt new technology is a direct reflection of the changes in bearing operating conditions accompanied by a prevailing market need for alternative solutions. With the newly released low-viscosity engine oils there is now a need for improvements in wear resistance which in turn will help immensely with fuel economy.

Research conducted by MAHLE shows that the polymer-coated bearings offer increased resistance to both wear and fatigue compared to its lead-free electroplated coating counterparts. That’s not all, the polymeric coatings also improves corrosion resistance, allows for extended oil-drain intervals, are environmentally safe and is much easier to dispose of. Industry testing has conclusively shown that polymer-coated bearings deliver monumentally better post-test wear results and as a direct result will significantly lower owner-operator costs. With production on the new bearing system set to begin this summer at the MAHLE facility in Atlantic, Iowa, the first heavy-duty diesel engines with the polymeric lead-free bearings will be introduced during the second half of 2016 along with an additional product development program to be determined at a later date.

ASAP Fasteners leading supplier of high performance bearing products for aerospace, marine and various industry applications. Here you will find variety of bearings including ball bearing, cylinder bearing, thrust bearing, spindle bearing and many more.
