The Basic Function of Bearings

Most machines contain rotating parts, and bearings are used as the interfaces between the machines and these parts to enable the rotating motion to happen. A few simple examples would be wheels, gears, electric motors, fans, and pulleys. For the parts to continue revolving smoothly and with minimal friction, bearings are used. These can vary greatly in terms of size, material, and design, depending on their application.

When we move to the industrial sector, both mechanical and civil engineers use bearings in a lot of their designs. Large bridges use them to accommodate movement between parts, as do gearboxes and various other types of machines. Friction is always a problem between rotating and sliding parts and these devices all but eliminate the friction. However, each is designed for a specific application and a long and trouble-free service life will depend upon the selection of the right type for the job. At Technoslide, we specialise in the design, development, production and marketing of all manner of bearing technologies.

Our Services for Bearings

Many industrial bearings have large bore diameters to accommodate large rotating parts or assemblies, such as gears and wheels. Large, opening road bridges are equipped with such parts as well, as they feature rotating and moving parts that carry huge weights while the bridge is lifted or rotated. In most cases, direct-drive gearboxes are used to power large positive-displacement pumps as well. Both these types of machines naturally use industrial bearings to accommodate the motion between the moving parts within them. Should a bearing fail, you need professionals to either repair or replace it. This is where we can be of service.

The white-metal types are typically used in large machines, such as large turbines and electric motors, to ensure that the rotating parts can spin with minimal frictional losses to generate the necessary energy. Should a white-metal bearing fail, you can count on us to repair it or manufacture a new one to suit your needs. In fact, we are able to repair most bearings of up to 250 mm in diameter within a day or manufacture a new one within three days. In conclusion, if you need industrial-grade bearings or related services for repair or replacement, we have you covered.
