Keep ‘Em Rolling
Flexibility and customizing are key for some operations.
Baldor Electric Co.
Baldor says its new Dodge Motorized Torque-Arm II — a right-angle, C-face, shaft-mounted speed reducer — features a new, compact, flexible drive design that allows the reducer to mount in multiple positions. Two motor speeds and multiple gear ratios provide a wide range of speeds. The unit’s straddle-mounted input pinion provides maximum torque throughput with no overhung pinion shank, according to the company.
Precision Machine & Manufacturing, Inc.
Precision Machine says its screw conveyors move virtually any dry, granular, or powdery material smoothly and uniformly without packing or jamming. Standard screw configurations include variable pitch, tapered flights, cut flights, mixing paddles, and ribbon screws. The conveyors can be manufactured to any specified size using commercially available materials.
Bearings keep the “smooth” in conveyors.
Power Transmission Solutions
Power Transmission Solutions says its Sealmaster USRB spherical roller bearings offer superior performance and value. Features include patented, race-mounted, felt-lined finger seals; +/-2 degrees misalignment; set-screw lock bore sizes from 1-1/8 to 7 inches; adapter lock bore sizes from 1-1/8 to 8 inches; and high basic dynamic rating.
Luff Industries Ltd.
Luff says its conveyor idlers — consisting of a polymer end cap, triple labyrinth seal, and optional high-moisture seal — offer improved sealing to protect bearings from moisture and contaminants. The company says the idlers prevent premature bearing failure, resulting in longer roller life, reduced downtime, and lower maintenance costs.
The Timken Co.
Timken offers a complete line of spherical roller bearings, including the 23 and 33 series. Key to the spherical roller bearing design is the one-piece fully machined brass cage. The cage pocket wraps around the roller, providing guidance as the rollers rotate in and out of the load zone. The roller end and cage pockets are engineered to promote lubrication flow and reduce operating temperatures.
Goodman-Hewitt says it provides the technologies wanted by the aggregate industry, offering a wide range of ready-to-go ball bearings and roller bearings. The company also offers the option of regreasable or sealed bearings.
