Spherical roller bearings for vibratory applications
SKF's explorer spherical roller bearings for vibratory applications provide ideal performance and longer service life compared with conventional types.
SKF's explorer spherical roller bearings for vibratory applications provide ideal performance and longer service life compared with conventional types. Typical applications include vibrating screens, compactors, road rollers, and similar end-uses operating with high vibration and exposed to contamination, and/or poor lubrication conditions. The bearings additionally are designed to accommodate very heavy radial and axial loads suiting applications where misalignment or shaft deflections may occur. They extend bearing service life several times longer than other spherical roller bearings under typical heavy-duty conditions, lower operating temperatures for cooler and longer running, improve resistance to wear and contamination, perform excellently in high speeds, and reduce risks of fretting corrosion and induced axial preload. The bearings further can extend re-lubrication intervals to reduce maintenance costs and improve safety.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
