ConveyXonic Belt Information

The high-powered ConveyXonic High Tension Poly-V belts manufactured by Hutchinson Belt Drive Systems are built to have a long life with little to no maintenance. Made with a reinforced stretchy elastic nylon, the Convey Xonic belts can greatly enhance the weight transporting capacity of motorised roller conveyors. The Benefits of Convey Xonic Belts ConveyXonic Poly-V belts can move heavier weights at much higher speeds across much longer areas. They are also capable of stopping quickly and safely. With such extreme weights capable of being moved, it might be necessary to increase the driving force of the belts, which is easily achieved by adding more ribs. The Poly-V belts are designed to ensure a smooth movement even at high speeds such […]

Uncommon Causes of Machine Failure (and How to Avoid Them)

We have previously highlighted many of the most common causes of machinery failure and how to avoid them on this blog, but here we’ll focus on some of the less common causes and offer some advice on how to prevent these issues causing your machinery to require downtime for repairs or other major maintenance. Incorrect Machine Storage It is known that all kinds of machinery collect dirt, dust and other debris during operation, but they also do so when stored incorrectly. Also, when the normal operational debris is not cleaned out properly after each session of activity, it builds up and up until it starts affecting functionality. Even the likes of dust can settle during storage, or become moist, and […]

Sferax Suppliers of Linear Bearings and Rails

The Swiss linear bearing manufacturer Sferax are experts in the design of linear bearings and linear rails. Their product catalogue includes many different open ball and metric ball bearing designs, as well as a variety of miniature and compact ball bearings. All of their products are manufactured with high quality materials and are designed to function reliably if they are fitted and maintained correctly. Below we run through some of the technical specifications of Sferax’s bearing products and look at the fitting and maintenance instructions. Sferax Linear Bearings Technical Information The dynamic loads of Sferax linear bearings are usually half of the static load, with the preload size varying between  0.002 and 0.02mm of the shaft diameter, depending on the […]

Tschan Posimin and Posiflex Couplings

Tschan Couplings merged with Ringfeder Power Transmission a few years ago with the two companies aiming to complement each other with their product design and manufacture, with Ringfeder hoping the merger would continue to expand their growing position in the global market. Tschan Couplings and Tschan Suppliers Prior to the merger, Tschan were well known for their variety of commercially successful shaft-coupling technology products. They were already a leading manufacturer of non-shiftable, mechanical shaft couplings with Tschan suppliers like YB Components making many of their high quality products available to businesses all around the world. Their products were and still are primarily used with the machinery used in heavy-duty engineering applications. The mining and construction industries use Tshcan couplings a […]

Sumitomo Gearboxes and Parts Suppliers

The task of being a Sumitomo parts supplier can be a busy one thanks to the demand of their popular products such as the Cyclo Drives and Servomotors described below. Here we focus on just two of their huge product catalogue, but two designs that just happen to be extremely popular for industrial applications all around the world. Sumitomo Gearboxes – Cyclo Drive 6000 Sumitomo’s Cyclo Drives are unique drive technology products that remain unrivalled on the market. Different to traditional gear mechanisms, the Cyclo Drive is not exposed to external or shear forces and instead uses a rolling force to generate power. Thanks to this unique characteristic, Sumitomo gearboxes like the Cyclo Drive are far more resistant to wear […]

Industrial Gearbox Manufacturers

There are many industrial gearbox manufacturers of renown from a variety of countries around the world, but thanks to industrial gearbox distributors like YB Components, these high quality gearbox products are accessible to every business wherever they are based. Here we highlight just a handful of the industrial gearbox manufacturers whose parts, gears and motors are available to be shipped out upon request by YB Components. Heynau Gearboxes Heynau Gearboxes (Heynau Getreibe for German speakers) utilise a simple construction method consisting of a minimum of components which helps make their products especially efficient and reliable. Keeping their gear constructions simple also enables Heynau to manufacture gearboxes that boast a significant noise reduction compared to other designs. It is also worth […]

Senotec Switching Amplifiers CSV Series

Senotec Sensors are a German company specialising in manufacturing capacity level controls such as switching amplifiers, filling level probes and other kinds of sensors. They design and build products to cope with complex spatial conditions and extreme temperatures, especially those that require regular adjustment. Industrial machinery making good use of Senotec’s products are varied, including the likes of the textile and paper packaging industries, paint-spray lines and in book binding machinery. They also have multiple uses within the mechanical engineering sector and particularly the hygiene industry thanks to the especially high quality and reliability of the performance of Senotec’s sensory products. Multiple designs from their product range are available through Senotec Sensors suppliers such as YB Components, and below we […]

Enemac Shaft Locking Devices

The clamps, couplings and clutches designed and manufactured by Enemac Maschinentechnik (Machine Technology) can be used with original equipment or for retrofitting machinery that can be improved with updated and upgraded components. Enemac’s mechanical and hydro-mechanical power clamping products are particularly popular as they can generate high clamping forces quickly and reliably (and cost-effectively!) for use almost anywhere. Here we take a quick look at each of the Enemac shaft locking devices. ESB Power Clamping Nut These centrically operated Enemac shaft locking devices can handle 60 to 200 kN torque and has a protected bottomed thread and fits a DIN 787 T-bolt. The compact design makes it ideal to be integrated into planetary gearboxes, plus there are some special high […]

Obscure Machine Components

There are so many parts and components available through YB Components that can be shipped around the UK, Europe and the rest of the world, that it is easy for some of the more obscure machine parts to get overlooked when looking for products to feature in the blog. We will partly address the issue here by focusing on a handful of the more obscure products that are not as frequently requested as the likes of gearboxes, couplings and belt drives. Pulley for Heidelberg Printing Machines The global printing industry wouldn’t be the same without Heidelberg who have designed and innovated so many high quality printing press solutions. Despite the digitalisation of the industry on the whole, there are still […]
