(SPONSORED CONTENT)Super Stainless Offers Unparalleled Strength for Food and Beverage Manufacturing
When your chains are breaking down or corroding due to extreme temperature and high moisture level in your Food & Beverage (F&B) operations, it's time to switch them with a new one! Here's a new chain solution! Tsubaki Super Stainless™ roller chain combines the corrosion resistance of stainless steel with the strength of carbon steel and offers longer wear life than standard stainless steel resulting in reduced maintenance costs!

A wide variety of companies displayed mechanical power transmission and motion control technologies at Pack Expo, held in November in Chicago. The event, which is the largest packaging and processing trade show in North America, attracted more than 48,000 attendees, according to show owner and producer PMMI. The four-day event included 2,352 exhibiting companies, an increase of more than 19 percent from the previous show in 2012.

Much of the industrial energy being consumed by systems is wasted through inefficiency. For this article, a system will be defined as the following components working together: electrical input power, variable frequency drives, induction motors, gearboxes and transmission elements (chains, belts, etc.).
The issue might be a faulty treadmill at a local gym, the need to update orthopedic surgery equipment or simply a train stuck in neutral at the toy store. Whatever the case may be, viewing e-mails in the marketing department at Torque Transmission is like opening Christmas presents every morning.
In order for a company to be as efficient as possible, production, inventory and distribution components must be a top priority. A focused supply chain that gets the right materials to the right places in the allotted time frame encourages repeat business. These are concepts somewhat overlooked by many business executives in todayâ™s economy.
As with just about everything else in the manufacturing world â” and all which that universe entails â” it depends. After all, thatâ™s why the art of manufacturing is a process â” not a one-system-fits-all discipline. Yes, once that process has been properly designed and correctly implemented for a given manufacturing production need, it may well run like the astest, smoothest cookie-cutter-type operation ever devised.
The technology continues to evolve in chain- and belt-driven systems
The following article examines some of the most recent product and industry news related to belts and chains, including news from Continental, Gates, Igus and Tsubaki.

Chain and sprocket drives of one form or another have been driving machines and conveying materials for over a thousand years. The chain manufacturing industry has developed numerous types and sizes of drive chains. Although it is a mature form of power transmission, there are still many industrial applications for which drive chain is suited. It is economical, resistant to shock loads, easy to install, has the ability to transmit high torque, operates in hostile environments, and is efficient. Chain and sprocket drives are highly engineered and manufactured within close tolerances.
Clutches and Brakes take center stage in the April 2017 edition of Product News.
Iâ™m building a custom gearbox with 7075 T-6 spur gears, and Iâ™m concerned that aluminum flakes will enter the races on the roller bearings (SKF 2307) and cause premature failure. So my question is â” should I place an oil seal on the shaft first to protect the bearing â” or is this an unfounded concern and I should mount the seal in the typical manner outside the bearing? Or both? Or go with a sealed bearing? Iâ™m confused and could use your expertise, please.
Maximizing packaging machine productivity and performance is imperative to success and is driving OEMs to adopt and invest in the latest technologies that can meet their customersâ™ challenges. At the forefront of these performance-driven technologies is an integrated control system—or programmable automation controller (PAC)—and latest-generation motion solutions.
This special product news section takes a look at the latest in motion control products.
This paper introduces the basic fundamentals of proportional-integral-derivative (PID) control theory and the characteristics of each of the PID control loops.

Today, better fuel economy is a main objective in the automotive development process. It remains top-of-mind with the auto industry and consumers because of costs and environmental impacts. Because the industry’s average fuel-economy standard is required to increase by 40 percent by 2020, manufacturers and engineers are working to develop fuel-efficient, environmentally friendly and reliable designs for vehicles.
At a Midwestern producer of tubular steel products, measures taken to counteract the effects of impact on a quench tank roll made it difficult to remove and replace the conventional pillow block bearings that support the rollâ™s shaft.
This article summarizes some common hurdles, issues and questions encountered by the newer and casual users of tapered roller bearings.
Believe me when I tell you that â” as a domestic automotive engineer â” I bleed U.S. manufacturing. I have never lived more than 50 miles from Detroit,
Tapered roller bearings can be set at initial machine assembly to any desired axial or radial clearance. This unique feature enables a designer to control bearings to meet anticipated application operating conditions, and thereby provide optimum bearing and system performance.
A reader asks: I have heard that new axles no longer need a break-in period. True or false?
Many of us have been there; the bearings had the correct preload. You know it, you were there, and you personally saw the measurements. Now, the testing is done and the preload is gone. Not a little gone, not sort of gone - gone, gone. Finger pointing ensues. Suppliers are dragged in by their wrinkly Polo collars. You know the drill. Losing preload in a tapered roller bearing (TRB) system over the life of your application can be a troublesome problem, particularly for gear sets that are prone to noise or severe applications that rely on a very rigid and stable system.
What are the best methods to adjust tapered roller bearings?
This paper is intended to enlarge the application range of radial cylindrical roller bearings by means of a more precise determination of thrust load capacity and more cost-effective design.
