Gearboxes have many moving parts like gears, bearings, shafts, clutches and couplings. Each gearbox component is inspected individually for functional integrity. Gearing can be helical, bevel and/or worm, which are used independently or as a combination as a speed reducer or speed increaser in a gearbox. If your gearbox is making noise, vibrating, leaking or […]

Anything mechanical that spins has a bearing in it. The two most common types of bearings are ball bearings and roller bearings. Bearings work by rolling between two surfaces to reduce friction. Ball and roller bearings help shafts and parts rotate in motors and machinery. Ball bearings are most commonly used in household appliances, such […]
Simply put, a journal bearing is a shaft or journal rotating in a bearing. The shaft rotates in the bearing with a layer of lubricant separating the two parts. Because journal bearings are designed to reduce load friction, they are often used when the load is light and the motion is continuous. With a journal […]
