SKF ProFlex automated lubrication system improves container crane efficiency

SKF has installed the SKF Proflex automated lubrication systems in the MSC Home Terminal cranes in Europe’s second largest port, Belgium’s Port of Antwerp, enabling the customer to reduce manual maintenance with about 1,900 hours annually.

On average, the customer spent about 90 hours to perform lubrication routines manually and this is carried out when the cranes are not in operation. As the container port traffic experiences double digit growth yearly, the terminal operator faces increased time pressure and shorter maintenance windows to carry out the work.

“By automating the lubrication process, the SKF ProFlex system is an ideal solution for our customer. Previous manual lubrication routines required a lot of man-hours per year, per crane. SKF ProFlex systems are now supporting crane availability and are helping to cut downtime and productivity loss. The systems also eliminate the safety risks workers are exposed to if they would need to perform the manual lubrication work on the cranes,” says Henrik Lange, SKF President Industrial Market, Strategic Industries.

SKF ProFlex system features a pump unit that delivers grease to a series of progressive feeders, which can automatically supply a defined amount of lubricant up to 150 lubrication points. The installed system at the port lubricates the wheel base, winch and trolley, supplying the exact amount of lubricant to over 60-points on each crane. Additionally, SKF fitted each SKF ProFlex system with control options on pumps, distributors and feeders, allowing the customer to monitor the systems from the office and keeping the cranes in optimal condition.

SKF制定新气候目标

SKF制定新气候目标(0)

在2016年年底,SKF集团结束了一项为期4年的解决气候变化的方案,使其自身正常运转的能源使用量减少了14%,货物运输排放量减少了31%。 此外,SKF的BeyondZero客户解决方案-为客户带来显著环境效益的产品和解决方案的销售额达到7亿欧元,较上年增长15%。 SKF的新气候目标将延长至2025,以2015年为基准年。SKF在此期间的目标是减少每吨轴承销售和每吨产品出货量40%的二氧化碳排放量。此外,该集团将继续其不断扩大的BeyondZero客户解决方案业务以及其在能源效率供应链上的进展报告。                

NSK开发低噪音推力滚针轴承 促进汽车零部件电气化

NSK开发低噪音推力滚针轴承 促进汽车零部件电气化(0)

NSK开发了一种低噪音推力滚针轴承,以满足汽车电气化的需求。在电动汽车(EV)和插电式混合动力汽车(PHV)使用电动马达时,利用这种新的低噪音技术和设计,有助于创造更舒适的驾驶体验。 NSK的目标是到2021年,该轴承的销售目标是15亿日元。 开发背景 如今世界各地的消费者和监管机构都聚焦于更环保的电动汽车和插电式混合动力汽车上,而这些汽车的快速发展正在改变着汽车行业的面貌。与内燃机相比,电动马达要更为静音,所以先前被发动机发出的声音所掩盖的噪音也逐渐凸显出来。为了解决这一问题,NSK承担了降低滚针轴承产生的噪音这一挑战,滚针轴承应用于汽车变速箱和各种其他应用领域。

This article, press release or announcement is translated from BearingNEWS (www.bearing-news.com) publications and adapted for the Chinese bearing industry professionals. << Replacing Roller Bearings with GGB Plain Bearings >> 当今GGB轴承技术提供的先进滑动轴承与滚动轴承相比具备很多优势。当今GGB轴承技术提供的先进滑动轴承与滚动轴承相比具备很多优势。 除了它们的简单设计和成本效益,滑动轴承提供更大的负载能力,更大空间,重量更轻,更紧凑的设计节省重量。此外他们补偿偏差,减少边缘载荷和抑制噪声和振动。因为它们不包含运动部件,轴承也提供更安静的工作环境,更可靠的性能,并且只需要很少维护。 这些优势是由设计工程师在广泛应用滑动轴承替换滚动轴承来实现的。这些应用包括风力涡轮机,农业设备,转向系统,空调压缩机,发动机摇臂,节流阀,变速箱和传动系统,和头目,其中。潜在应用包括海上浮式生产储油系统,制动机构,发电机和起动机。 滑动轴承也不是适合所有应用。尤其是在需要超低摩擦和/或高精度轴位置。但是在涉及高载缓慢的振荡运动中滑动轴承就显示出了优异性,因为滚动轴承的滚动部件脱落可能会导致过早失效。 用GGB轴承取代传统的滚动轴承可以给用户提供技术和竞争优势。更大的接触面积提供高承载能力和抗疲劳破坏,冲击和边缘载荷。轴承的摩擦特性也抵抗惯性和高速滑行,滚子轴承的主体,他们容忍偏差优于许多滚动元件设计。 紧凑的整体结构和较小的外壳,节省空间和重量。简单的压入配合几乎消除了安装的潜在损害。转换为滑动轴承还可以降低部分成本,低风险装配。 完整替换滚动轴承与普通轴承的文章,请点击 http://machinedesign.com/article/plain-bearings-outperform-rolling-element-bearings-0407 更多信息请联系 china@ggbearings.com
