NSK gains SNCF homologation for TGV wheelset bearings

NSK gains SNCF homologation for TGV wheelset bearings
The national railway company of France, SNCF, has granted final homologation for the use of NSK wheelset bearings for TGV very high-speed trains. This confirmation is the culmination of a five-year project that has seen NSK engineers liaise closely with SNCF to ensure that exact requirements could be met. Although NSK already received similar approvals in Japan, China and Korea, it is the first time that the company has received a homologation for an application of this type in Europe.

What to do when even the fast lane is too slow?

What to do when even the fast lane is too slow?
The excitement builds as we reach a half-way point in this year’s Formula 1 season. There’s finally multi-team battle for the WDC thanks to significant changes to the rule book which have dramatically altered the cars; making them faster and changing their appearance. Phil Holyome of engineering components specialists WDS Component Parts takes us behind the scenes for a technical pit stop.

Choosing the right balls for your bearings

Choosing the right balls for your bearings
The time has finally come that some pro-cyclists have turned to precision hybrid ceramic bearings for their low rolling resistance to give them a race day advantage over those who opt for all-steel bearings. Chris Johnson, Managing Director of specialist bearing supplier, SMB Bearings, explains this choice and explores the differences between full ceramic and hybrid bearings.

New bearing and ball screw innovations from NSK at EMO

New bearing and ball screw innovations from NSK at EMO
The forthcoming EMO 2017 exhibition will see NSK shining the spotlight on a number of new and recent innovations for the global machine tool market. These will include advances in angular contact ball bearings for main spindles, deep groove ball bearings for spindle motors, and toughened ball screws specifically for injection moulding machines. Also featured on the NSK booth (Hall 7, Stand D12) will be a working demonstration of a condition monitoring system (CMS) with real-time vibration analysis displayed on a monitor.

Global automotive crankshaft market to vastly increase by 2024

Global automotive crankshaft market to vastly increase by 2024
The mechanical device at the heart of an automotive engine is also known as the Crankshaft. It has the ability to convert linear reciprocating motion of piston to a rotary motion for engine power transmission. These are widely used in automotive field, such as in cars, trucks, trains and in other automobiles. Without crankshaft it would not be possible for a vehicle to move even inch, since it is the main link between input powers to the output powers.

Ultra-Flat cylinders designed for big lifts in small spaces

Ultra-Flat cylinders designed for big lifts in small spaces
A new Ultra-Flat hydraulic cylinder series has been designed by Enerpac for those projects with small working space, starting at just 2.8cm, but large lifting requirements up to 1000 tonnes. The CULP-Series with lifting capacity 10–50 tonnes, and CUSP-Series 10–1000 tonnes, are designed for applications where high lifting forces are needed in confined spaces.

High-feed face mill speeds up productivity

High-feed face mill speeds up productivity
A new high-feed version of the CoroMill 745 face milling cutter, has been unveiled by Sandvik Coromant, featuring a 25° entering angle for additional productivity gains when milling steel and cast iron workpieces. The new high-feed version facilitates even higher metal removal rates (MRR) in applications with depths of cut up to 2.8mm (0.110”). The new cutter is set to benefit sectors such as die and mould, pump and valve, oil and gas, automotive, power generation and general engineering.

Elastic jaw couplings for hydraulics applications

Elastic jaw couplings for hydraulics applications
The new Spidex couplings have been introduced by R+L Hydraulics for hydraulic applications. These elastic jaw couplings are axially mountable, fail-safe and maintenance free. They stand out particularly because of their vibration damping properties. Typical applications include pumps and compressors, agricultural and construction machines as well as wind turbines.

Scottish Canal’s Falkirk Wheel receives a visit

Scottish Canal’s Falkirk Wheel receives a visit
AEMT members were able to gain an exclusive audience with the Principal M&E Engineer for the Falkirk wheel, at the Scotland meeting this year. After being guided through the more technical aspects of the engineering behind the wheel and the connected canals, members were taken on a tour of the wheel’s engine and maintenance rooms.
