Pack Expo: Automation and EducationBy Alex Cannella, Associate Editor
As Pack Expo approaches Chicago this year, education remains a focal point, while automation continues to rise.
Ask any exhibitor at Pack Expo International and the co-located Healthcare Packaging Expo (Oct. 14-17 at McCormick Place, Chicago) why they're there, and you'll probably get the same response: end users.
Engineered to Convert High Thrust into High Performance: The Breakthrough Asymmetric Mainshaft Bearing from SchaefflerWe designed our new, state-of-the-art Asymmetric Mainshaft Support Bearing for extreme applications where a wind turbine's mainshaft bearing is threatened by high thrust forces. By optimizing the gearbox side of the bearing with an increased contact angle, potentially damaging thrust is safely transferred through the bearing to the housing support.
The result: lower torque, less friction and less heat inside the bearing.
Which means less downtime for you...
and more power for your wind turbine!
