Bearings with integrated sensors are used in a wide variety of applications, but many potential industrial uses are not yet implemented.
Our theme for 2016 is âœEngineering Smart.â Our goal as a publication is to help you engineer better systems, taking advantage of the latest in technology to create mechanical systems that last longer, save energy, cost less and increase performance. The way we do that is by bringing you the best information possible on the design and engineering of gears, gear drives, bearings, motors, couplings and related power transmission components and systems.
The future of motion control is connectivity. Read this issue to learn why.

The Latest Clutch & Brake Technology Looks at Reliability, Cost and Design Specifications.
A machine called Sub1 Reloaded solved a Rubik's Cube in 637 thousandths of a second in Munich.
At Hannover Messe, Power Transmission Engineering had the opportunity to sit down with Stefan Hantke, president of the Industrial North America division of Schaeffler USA, to discuss the current stateof- the-art in bearings manufacturing, the trends in industrial bearings and the current state of U.S. manufacturing. (In the meantime Stefan Hantke has taken over responsibility for the global sales activities of Schaeffler Industrial)
Smart actuators bring big benefits to utility and other off-highway vehicles
In a recent reader survey, you told us you wanted to see more specific examples of mechanical power transmission products and how theyâ™re designed, upgraded, maintained and used in a wide variety of industries. In the business, we call that type of article an âœapplication story,â and in this issue weâ™ve answered the call with several application stories that show how smart choices are being made about motion components in a wide variety of industries.
The revolution goes by many names: machine-to-machine communication, smart manufacturing and the Industrial Internet, to name a few. In Europe, the prevailing term is Industry 4.0. In Germany, where that phrase was coined, the government is putting down â‚¬200 million to cultivate a lead in the industry. The McKinsey Global Institute estimates that its potential economic impact will be almost $4 trillion (or more) by 2025. Enthusiastic evangelists will tell you that the Industrial Internet is the most important advance in their industries that theyâ™ve seen in their decades-long careers.
In this issueâ™s cover story, Stefan Hantke describes an evolving marketplace that requires smarter components and more integrated solutions. In fact, Hantke, who was recently named head of global industrial sales for the Schaeffler Group, goes so far as to predict that within a few short years, every bearing will have a wire coming out of it.

Motor Operation Gets Big Boost from Smart Technology (Here's How to Take Advantage)
When trying to find a new bonding material dispense system, one manufacturer tested a series of pumps â” all of which leaked due to the abrasiveness of the bonding material. The manufacturer also had been attempting to manage shot size manually with their previous system, and was not able to keep dispense consistent. The company searched for a system that could accurately dispense programmed shot sizes while also eliminating the leaking issues they had experienced with previous pumps. Graco provided a Check-Mate pump with SmartWare software, and the manufacturer is now able to automatically dispense shots of bonding material as small as one ounce without leaks.
Smart Factory solutions hint at machine design potential in 2018.
