There's no doubt that Rolling Bearings can prove to be an expensive investment over time. But is there a smarter way to buy? The final decision to make a purchase on a bearing is much more cost-effective when you take into account the whole life costs, also known as the total cost of ownership. Basically, you must consider what it will cost you over the life-span of the product, not just at the initial purchase. This is definitely a preferable alternative if you’re interested in making your dollar work for the long-term and saving some money over time.
It is important to take a look at the whole picture. When you buy a cheaper bearing, you may be saving money in the short term, but you are also unnecessarily sacrificing your money when it comes to the future. Purchasing a cheaper bearing can be an unfortunate decision, as usually only 10% of the overall cost of the item is accounted for in the initial buying.
When assessing the total cost of ownership, you should always account for purchase price, installation costs, energy costs, operation cost, maintenance costs, downtime costs, environmental costs and decommissioning or disposal costs.
There are many advancements in High Technology Rolling Bearings. Yes, they have a higher price point, but their improved features allow total cost of ownership reductions to be achieved. There is added value over the complete life span of the product. These reductions are achieved because of a much lower assembly time, reduced maintenance cost and improved energy efficient, just to name a few.
There is another benefit to opting for the more advanced, higher-tech components. This is the fact that the value of the product actually increases over time as opposed to decreasing. Specific features can be added to the bearings that add further value over the life of the machine. These include unique sealing technology within the bearing to help save space, features to prevent slippage under the effects of rotation, and special coating that minimizes friction.

Fifteen years ago, Nord-Lock Ltd joined Nord-Lock Inc. as fully owned businesses that resulted in the starting point to becoming an international group. Joining of two companies happens a lot of times in this industry because business want to reach out to the most customers as possible. Since then the company has grown in more territories, which has become an important part in building key relationships and supplying value to their customers and partners.
The amount of knowledge that Nord-Lock Group has is now reflected in the stories of the technologies and the knowledge lodged in the people behind these technologies. This knowledge complements the origin of the Nord-Lock offered back in 1982 when the company developed the Nord-Lock washers. The Super bolt trademark dates back to the 1970s in the steel city of Pittsburgh, USA.
Rolf Steinbock revolutionized the origin of jackbolts by replacing established nuts and bolts with multi-jackbolt tensioners. This reduced many common bolting problems experienced by heavy industry in the area. Fred Heaton and team developed hydraulic bolt tensioning tools that are lightweight, compact, and easy to use. They are now used globally on numerous industrial applications.
According to director of Nord-Lock Germany, Andreas Maile, broadened product range is key.
“We are in a niche market where we need to have competence, experts and educated people,”
“Different industries demand different priorities, and having multiple product lines that meet the demands of the toughest applications is essential. Take product maintenance on a wind farm, for example, or providing bolting solutions for acidic environments or extreme heat.”
With Bolting Solutions from Nord-Lock Group being fitted worldwide, the safety aspect is of highest importance. The Nord-Lock Group is involved in extending bolting knowledge on a daily basis, offering both on-site and distant support, combined with the technical verification carried out from in-house laboratories to ensure secure and enhanced solutions.
Here at ASAP Part Services we are expanding our inventory to all things dealing with aerospace and national stock number parts, so we can be get customers all parts needed. Most companies can only do specific kinds of parts, which makes customers go elsewhere for their orders, but here we want to give customer the chance just to send us the parts and well give them the best lead time and price.
The Components Division of the Liebherr Group has made its appearance on the American Tunneling Market since the delivery of the first thrust bearing for the Robbins Company’s tunneling machine. To be the only manufacture to provide a specific part for aircraft is great because you know all parts will be ordered from your company. The two-row roller bearing with a diameter of 2,500 mm guarantees dependable shield rotation of the thrust machine over the entire tunnel length. The thrust bearing’s dependability is essential in tunnel construction because replacing tunneling is very complex and costly.
The tunnel-boring machine (TBM) has a shield diameter of three and a half meters. The shield is mean for supply tunnels. The TBMs can reach a size of 14 meters, which are more for road, railway, and other tunnels. A special feature of the Liebhrr roller bearing is a one-piece bronze cage, which substitutes for a pre-tensioned holding track. It is pre-tensioned so that the rolling elements of the holding track are in contact with the track in all load situations.
Facts like these about their only being one manufacture is great information to have, so us as brokers we can message all people using this aircraft and offer them these parts. Usually with small things like bearings people purchase multiple, since they are used on many locations throughout the aircraft.
Liebherr bearings meet high requests in terms of dependability and service life. Despite aggressive local competition, Liebherr achieved in being selected as the component supplier. Robbins tunneling machines are exposed to extreme loads and environmental conditions, such as high temperatures and coarse dirt and dust. The Robbins Company has been effective internationally in the field of tunnel boring machines for more than 60 years.
After commissioning, the tunnel-boring machine will be used by an end customer in China. Companies like Robbins Company are companies we like to deal with here at ASAP Part Services, knowing that they are still in the industry for 60 years shows they are doing something right. We have been in the industry for about 10 years and we plan on being one of the biggest distributors in the world.
There are three main types of steel that makes up a steel fastener. These are: stainless steel, carbon steel, and alloy steel. Each type of steel has its own purpose, but today’s focus will be on the stainless steel fastener. Stainless Steel Fastener manufacturers have been in the industry for a very long duration. This type of fastener has a lot of applications and are well known due to its durability and effectiveness.
Stainless Steel Fasteners are environmentally friendly as they can be recycled 100%, are corrosion resistant allowing them to survive in almost all conditions, are stable under temperature extremes, and versatile as there can be many types and grades of stainless steel. For example, you can have 316 stainless steel fasteners, 314 stainless steel fasteners, and 18-8 stainless steel fasteners. However, despite the common use of stainless steel fasteners, there are a few facts that are not well known by 316 stainless steel fasteners.
First off, many people do not know that stainless steel surfaces can restore itself. This process is called passivation and it occurs when a scratch is made on the steel. Oxygen engages with the chromium to create this layer of protective material from further corrosion or damage. Oxide forms and automatically covers the exposed steel when the passive film is disrupted if it is not too deep. If the scratch does end up too deep, the material can be manually passivated.
Secondly, many people hear about stainless steel being corrosion-resistant, but forget that corrosion-resistant does not mean corrosion-proof. As mentioned in the previous fact, the stainless steel fastener’s ability to heal itself relies on oxygen. When oxygen is limited, the protective film is compromised and corrosion will occur. Also, if debris from other steel material ends up on stainless steel fasteners, the debris will rust and tarnish the stainless steel.
Lastly, many people understand stainless steel to be non-magnetic. However, there are slight grades of magnetism that results from the manufacturing procedure. Many stainless steels are magnetic to a certain extent, and only the 304, 316, and 316L stainless steel fasteners are mostly non-magnetic. Though stainless steels are used worldwide in everyday applications, these facts aren’t commonly known and can make you seem like a stainless steel fastener expert!
In the market of aircraft's, two well-known names are Boeing and Airbus. While Airbus already have midsize aircraft's, Boeing is seeking to establish their presence with midsize airplanes. Boeing aircraft parts are widely used and known throughout the world, so it comes to no shock that Boeing is planning their next move.
In fact, Boeing is the world's largest aerospace company and they are also a leading manufacturer for commercial and military aircraft's. Boeing is directly involved in around 150 countries, and has an outstanding resume. The plan to begin their expedition into midsize airplanes is exciting and can drastically change the current market.
Airbus is another company that is widely known, and was formed in Europe. Airbus manufactures civil aircraft's and goes head to head with Boeing. Each year, these two aircraft giants compete for aircraft orders. The tides are constantly turning and you never know which company will have more orders in each year. As Boeing is planning their next move, Airbus must be watching and waiting in anticipation because of the impact the move from Boeing will make on the market.
Although Airbus does seem to be relatively equal in terms of market impact with Boeing, people wonder whether the midsize aircraft's from Boeing will begin to shift the market towards Boeing’s favor. Boeing Aircraft parts and aircraft's are already widely known, so it would be hard to imagine that Boeing would not benefit and control most of the market when they initiate their plans.
Satellites are crucial to our society and the world today, and has allowed us to greatly enhance our knowledge and communication. Without satellites, we would not be able to predict the weather, navigate ourselves with GPS navigation, or have a multitude of images of our planet. Satellites are extremely important, but they are also extremely expensive as well. A problem that has existed in the cost is getting the satellite launched. Not only is the launch costly, but the launch is also difficult with smaller satellites.
However, due to advancing aerospace parts we are coming to a solution. CubeCan has stepped up to the plate and designed rockets that are compact and powerful enough to help launch the satellites into orbit. These small rockets will be attached to a Lockheed F-104 Starfighter, which can travel up to a top speed of Mach 2 – which is approximately 1530 miles per hour.
The small rockets will be attached to the F-104 Starfighter’s previous rocket pylons beneath its wings. Once the F-104 Starfighters have reached altitudes of around 60,000 feet, the rocket from CubeCab is expected to initiate.
This would also cut down the costs of launching satellites in the air and hopefully get more satellites up and running. This would mean faster and better communication, wireless internet, and data collection. Dustin Still, CubeCab’s chief operating officer, wishes to launch the CubeSats within the next year. He anticipates that a launch should will take roughly 30 days to be sent to orbit from the time of the order.

The world’s leading specialist in drilling, lifting and subsea solutions provider, Huisman, has just announced that they will be working on producing the world’s largest bearings components. Huisman will begin work on the bearings at their production facility in China. 30 meters in diameter, the bearings are being developed for the world’s largest Tub Cranes which are themselves are being current constructed for Heerema’s new semi-submersible crane vessel Sleipnir. This was born out of necessity as traditional Tub Cranes use bogies or large wheels for their slew system whereas the Huisman designed cranes are using large bearings of their own design which are all manufactured in-house.
The bearing allows the crane to save substantial amount of weight and since 2012, nobody has been doing it better than Huisman who have been wildly successful at designing and developing bearings with diameter up to 14m. The two bearings being developed for the 10,000mt Sleipnir are segmented and allows for inspection of the rollers without disassembling the bearing which is a huge advantage. Huisman has reported that the first bearing has already been completed at their China location with the assembly of the second bearing to begin soon in March of this fiscal year.

Move over lead bearings, there’s a new sheriff in town. MAHLE Engine Components, a German automotive supplier, has developed a new lead-free bearing system out of polymer for heavy-duty truck engines. This new system combines the newly developed engineered polymeric coatings with a state of the art lead-free bearing linings which promises several advantages over existing bearings. With the new heavy-duty diesel engines slated to start using the new lead-free bearings this year, the product development programs have already been in the works for additional applications. Two major engine manufacturers have begun production of the lead-free bearing systems this summer at the MAHLE’s facility in Atlantic, Iowa.
The first advantage of the polymer technology is the improving the wear resistance to wear and fatigue that plague the other lead-free bearings which utilizes electroplated coatings. This is especially important seeing as how improved wear resistance improves fuel economy by helping manufacturers accommodate low-viscosity engine oils. Another advantage of the polymeric coating bearings is the improved corrosion resistance and extended oil-drain intervals. Lead-free bearings are also safer and easier to dispose of which makes them more environmentally than past iterations. MAHLE boasts that the new bearing systems’ cast-bronze bearing technology combined with the polymer overlay will allow for high load capabilities, seizure and wear resistance.
