2 Global Industrial Outlook: Houston, We Have a Problem (December 2014)

With two armed conflicts underway impacting economic performance in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, we continue our investment stance of “Buy on the Sound of Cannons — Selectively” — but readers of Power Transmission Engineering should not be sanguine. Geopolitics is beginning to exert significant pressure on several end markets: I specifically refer to oil price. West Texas Intermediate or WTI has dropped from its $95-105 trading range in late spring to about $75 — about a (25%) drop despite wo ongoing conflicts because of excess supply.

3 Linear Motion Q&A: Customized Machinery Built with Off-the-Shelf Components (April 2010)

4 Variable Speed Pump Drives For Industrial Machinery - System Considerations (February 2015)

The changing landscape of hydraulic drives is leading many fluid power specialists to quickly adapt to using variable speed pump drives. Optimum utilization of these drives requires, in many cases, additional system design considerations.

5 Control System Upgrades Product Testing and Validation Machinery (December 2008)

Opto 22 Embeds Snap Motion Control subsystem in production equipment to control, monitor and gather operational data.

6 Global Industrial Outlook: Slow Growth Ahead; Farm Belt No Help (June 2015)

First quarter results confirmed our view. Capital expenditures are being slashed in the oil sector, the stronger U.S. dollar is enabling Japanese machinery competitors to gain share in the Middle East and Latin America, and lower soft commodity prices translate into a continuing North American decline in demand for farm equipment.

7 Ceramic Bearings for Water Processing, Water Filtration and Liquid Handling Applications (October 2016)

Bearings are an essential component in the majority of mechanical designs and equipment. It is important to consider the most effective materials when designing industrial machinery, especially in applications where water or other liquids are present. Many materials will be unable to overcome the challenges associated with operating in a wet or corrosive environment.

8 Global Industrial Outlook (March 2014)

Fourth quarter results were above expectations for most U.S. machinery companies, including significant revenue beats at Cummins, Caterpillar, Oshkosh Corp and PACCAR with strong North American truck demand, improving construction equipment markets and general stability elsewhere.

9 It Doesn’t End Here (December 2016)

This issue, we’re pleased to present our annual Buyers Guide. It’s our comprehensive directory of suppliers of mechanical components, including gears, bearings, motors, couplings, clutches, brakes, gear drives and more.

10 The Best-Kept Secret in Green Technology (December 2009)

The Bearing Specialists Association explains the role of bearings in ensuring the efficient operation of machinery.

11 Trends in Industrial Gear Oils (April 2013)

With today's smaller, hotter - and overloaded - machinery, specifying the correct lubricant is vital.

12 Gears for Industry, Gears for Defense, Gears for Almost Anything at Gear Expo 2011 (October 2011)

What would Gear Expo be without gear manufacturers? While it is useful and indeed necessary to keep abreast of the new machinery out there that will be front-and-center at the show, it is of equal import to check out the finished product - GEARS.

13 Cut and Print (December 2011)

Norkol Converting Corporation is one of the nation’s leading independently owned converters and distributors of commercial printing papers. The company has full production capabilities and state-of-the-art machinery for winding, trimming and sheeting. The company utilizes traditional slitter re-wind equipment that unwinds, slits and then re-winds paper to new dimensions. These conventional re-winders, while typically producing new widths of paper with clean cuts, work at an inefficient, slow pace.
