Advice for searching for industrial components

You need to locate some variable speed pulleys and belts. Do you opt for Berges, Lenze, SIT, Deepak or Comitec? You need some couplings, clutches and universal joints. Which makes do you go for? Desch, Enemac, Falk, Jaure, Kumera, or Tschan maybe? Lastly, you need a new industrial gearbox. There are hundreds of industrial gearboxes manufacturers in the world. Do you opt for Pujol, Zurrer, Heynau, Spaggiari, to name just a few? Our point? Searching for industrial parts can be a challenge in itself. Fortunately, help is at hand with the following advice for searching for industrial components. Why are the parts needed? It might sound obvious but the first thing you need to decide is why and where the […]

Five ways to avoid damage occurring on clutches

Enemac clutches, Desch clutches, Conax clutches, or whatever type of industrial clutch you operate, will typically run for a very long time and operate hundreds of thousands of cycles. However, it is important to be aware that these essential machinery components can become damaged and ruined if care is not taken and certain precautionary procedures are not regularly carried out. To help ensure an industrial clutch lasts for the duration it are designed to last for, take a look at the following five fairly common ways an industrial clutch can become damaged and how to avoid it. Ensure the clutch is aligned properly As Machine Design writes in its guide on problems associated with electric clutches and brakes, one common […]

Important advice for industrial hydraulic motors

In a blog earlier this year, we explored how to maintain industrial hydraulic components in order to preserve the condition and to prolong the life of hydraulic components. We examined the importance of using the right fluid, avoiding using iron pipes, replacing the filters and changing the hydraulic fluid and avoiding exceeding operational limits, in the quest to keep hydraulic systems working in tip-top condition. This blog will explore how we can similarly extend, or at least not shorten, the life of a hydraulic motor. Hydraulic motors are a feature of hydraulic power transmission systems. As notes, the purpose of a hydraulic motor is to convert hydraulic energy into mechanical energy. These types of motors are often proven to […]

How to avoid problems associated with gearbox lubrication

Heynau gearboxes, Pujol geared motors, Pujol geared units, Parallel shaft gearboxes and Sirem gear motors, whatever type of industrial gearbox you operate, they all have one thing in common – they need regular lubrication. Take a look at some of the problems associated with gearbox lubrication and how Ybto avoid them. Not giving the gearbox any lubrication As Machinery Lubrication warns, regularly operating a worm gearbox dry is asking for failure. What you need to be aware of is the fact that gearbox manufacturers often ship their gearboxes and geared motors dry, primarily because the shipping costs are less without the additional weight of the lubricant. Not only this but shipping a dry geared unit enables the end user to […]
