Ball bearings in many types of applications require maintenance, and this includes proper cleaning and re-lubrication. Proper bearing upkeep can greatly improve the operating life of the bearing, as dirt and grime can cause damage or diminish bearing performance. The cleaning process is an important one, as bearings can easily be damaged if they are mishandled.

Ball bearings have been used to facilitate rotary movement for hundreds of years. They were first patented by Philip Vaughan to support a carriage axle in 1794, and have since been improved upon and varied to support a multitude of rotary applications. This article will describe the modern process used to create the ball bearings widely used today, from the construction of the balls to part assembly and packaging.

Ball bearings are some of the most commonly used bearings in rotary movement applications. They comprise a row or multiple rows of balls between inner and outer raceways. This design capitalizes on the concept that rolling elements produce less friction than sliding elements. One ring is normally attached to the rotating assembly, or shaft, and as it rotates the balls roll around the inner raceway, while the other ring remains stationary. This allows for rotational movement with an extremely low friction coefficient, making it great for applications with high speeds and low friction requirements.

Dynamic bearing systems are engineered shafts that allow relative rotation between two components. One of the parts is permanently fixed while the other rotates on it. The design of bearing systems ranges from simplistic models to complicated types that have multiple moving sections. They also feature special components to help them transmit motion. This post helps to demystify the two common types of bearing systems:

For years, thoughts of scientific inventions always made people think of major inventors such as Robert Einstein and Wright Brothers. But Arduino (Genuino as known in some regions) revolution has now opened doors for any person to be the next Galileo. When I discovered Arduino, there was no doubt in my mind that it was the lever I needed to create amazing projects. Here, I will demonstrate my first four finished projects and outline others in the pipedream. Sit back because this will blow your mind!

Hydraulic systems have been evolving rather fast as engineers work on variations to deliver higher efficiency. Gone are the old days of only NPT and JIC as newer fitting versions such as JIS, BSPP, GAZ, DIN, and ORFS hit the market. Engineers and fitting manufacturers are working extra hard to create new end connection types to work with modern hydraulic systems. This post brings you the main considerations when selecting hydraulic fittings.
