The Engineering Edge – Application – ETX Pillow Blocks!

This was a troublesome application. This system is completely submerged in radioactive water at a nuclear power plant. So no Teflon, no seals, no lubrication – nothing that will degrade in a radioactive environment. The majority of components are stainless steel – except for our ceramic coated/supported shafting and our special, designed for this particular […]

The Engineering Edge – Application – Whisper Slides for Harvesting Honey

Sometimes, an application leads you to an immediate, off-the-shelf solution – like this one. Harvesting bee honey is a seasonal opportunity and these systems are hauled across the country to make it happen. They need to be all weather, tough and maintenance-free. The next time you take some honey and put it in your tea, […]

“New Design” Pillow Blocks from LM76!

When our customer, a major European manufacturer of machinery for the paper industry, informed us they were having failures with linear bearings in their robotic paper slicing system, we listened. As a robotic arm swings around (360 degrees) it slices the paper to length. After cutting the paper to length, a linear table below indexes […]

The Engineering Edge – Application – Trunnion Grinding Slide for Oil Field

  Motion Control – Application Story – We are shipping another slide today for the oil patch. When Weir Oil and Gas called with a slide application that required special engineering, LM76 was all ears – as it was right up our alley. This slide is a Trunnion Grinding Slide which has a 56HP motor […]
