Linear Chain application

This plate freezer was possible thanks to the linear chain range from Grob; as the UK distributor of Grob's linear product range we know that not every application suits traditional linear drive options - and if you have limited space but still require a push, as well as a pull, capability from your [...]

Increasing plant uptime

 Steel production is designed as a continuous process, which means that you need components you can rely on. One example which is historically known to require a lot of maintenance is the pairing of roller conveyor drives with torsionally flexible couplings.  A maintenance free alternative which can reduce the down-time, and associated loss of production, [...]

Why choose Combined Bearings?

Combined bearings are a cost effective guide solution for all kinds of lift systems, platforms and cantilever loads. The combined bearing system involves a radial bearing - to take out high moment loads - and a smaller, axial roller to eliminate side movement. They are often used to guide screw jack lifting and sliding systems, [...]

The concept of the machine tool

Machine tools are important types of machines, used throughout the mechanical engineering field. Most can be categorised into one or more of milling machines, drills, lathes, grinders, saws, shaping machines, and gear cutting machines. Another grouping contains erosive machine tools, such as laser, water jet, wire and sinker EDM (electronic discharge machining). New technologies, enabling [...]
