The European Union aims to expand the capacity for wind power generated at sea to at least 60 gigawatts by 2030. With its sealing solutions for the foundation structures, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies helps ensure that new wind turbines reach a service life of at least 30 years or more despite the rough conditions at sea.
Next-generation technology—everything from the electrification of vehicles to e-motors, bearings, mechatronics, and thermal management—was recently discussed during the Schaeffler Symposium 2022 in Detroit.
Emerson Bearing recently delivered this great back to basics blog on rod ends. Emerson Bearing and Action Bearing serve the bearing needs of international and domestic customers. The team at Emerson Bearing caters to global niche markets, while the team at Action Bearing, specializes in solutions for the OEM and MRO markets in New England.
The International Fluid Power Exposition (IFPE), along with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), have released another research whitepaper leading up to the return of the show to the Las Vegas Convention Center, March 14-18, 2023, along with the co-located CONEXPO-CON/AGG.
The top three suppliers of low voltage AC motors made waves in the motor and drives space with a string of acquisition announcements in August. First, WEG announced its acquisition of Gefran’s motion control business. Then, on August 11th, ABB announced its acquisition of Siemens’ NEMA motor business. Both developments are significant within the motor and drives market and serve to highlight portions of each company’s industrial automation strategy. In this insight, we’ll unpack both of these acquisitions and explain their implications on the broader motor and drives markets.
Pack Expo International is produced by PMMI, the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies. North America’s largest packaging event will bring together the solutions needed to launch new products and solve production issues. This article is PTE's second round of booth previews prior to the show.
Walk into any gear manufacturing facility and you'll find legacy equipment that has been running successfully for decades. While these machines offer insight from a historical perspective, it's the equipment moving gears through production cells hinting at the factory of the future and the role robotics and automation will play.

Why it Matters and How to Achieve it with SafeMotion
September 27, 2022
Every machine builder knows that they have to meet stringent safety requirements to protect workers from the risk of injury. If they build machines for the EU market, they should know that the European regulatory landscape is more advanced than in most other regions, with newer and more rigorous requirements for safety design and testing.
EU-equivalent safety capabilities are also being adopted by many non-European manufacturers despite the lack of specific in-country regulations. Sooner or later, every machine builder will need to offer functional safety capabilities or be left behind. Let’s look at what that means.
What's the latest in software design and simulation in the power transmission market? Here's a recap of some of the latest software solutions for bearings, gears, drivetrains and e-mobility applications.
