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.

taiwans inddustry fastener market

Taiwan’s industry of fasteners are picking their game up in producing higher-end fasteners that can complement the global fastener market and make them one of the world’s most competitive industries. The fastener industries now can make high end fasteners that can be used in all industries from automotive to aviation, to aerospace, to marines, to medical equipment and many other. This is why there has been a gradual increase in the value of fasteners.

The industry has been through continuous growth in the past few years and the market research has shown the increase in profits is correlated to the metal industry. Records show that the most lucrative side of the business is due to the medical equipment development in the past decade. Medical equipment has been in the rise for the past 100 years but in the past decade technology has been on the rise exponentially which is taking the medical industry on a high rise. For example the titanium alloy self-tapping bone screw has been one of the notable products in the fastener industry because it allows the newest electropolshing technology for titanium which improves the brightness and the imaging and cleanness to the screw’s surface and makes sure the color distribution is being even from anodic treatment.

The development of these products puts the industry on a high rise, similarly in the automotive and aerospace industry there is development when it comes to every detail in the fastener industry. Maybe not as much detail is needed in the automotive side as there is in the medical side, but automotive industry has been on such a high production rate that they can’t get especially when it comes to cap screw or hollow set screw.

skyfit fastener bryce

By thinking outside the box, Bryce Fastener Inc came up with ways that it was more convenient for the industry and for improving security in the industry. Bryce Fastener Inc is a company that is well known in its industry, recently they have announced the production and finalization of their new product.

It being productive and secure make the installation process much faster. This is beneficial to everyone that uses it but it is highly especially beneficial in places where high security is needed.

The idea of designing and building this skyfit was mainly because, any of the fasteners that are available in the market. These fasteners tend to be of old designs and not as reliable.  They lacked a proper stick-fit fastener. They especially produced this because many people were not satisfied with what is already out on the market. They struggled to find a fit for their specific use.

They mentioned

“Tox-pin, Hex Pin, Snake Eyes, and one way security screws are over 50 years old, they’re not reliable in secure applications because the bit-tips are available to the public”

the motivation was to come up with a piece that is a lot more convenient and more secure. Sky fit had been beneficial for many people whether for individual use or big corporations it is made with no “fumbling, dropping, or re attaching”. This piece is developed and has been improving since production for example. They made the possibility of it being color coated a possibility which even makes it more convenience for use.
