The Engineering Edge- ETX Unitized Pillow Block Bearings Are FDA Compliant!

engineering edge

We needed a bearing block that would be FDA compliant, washdown compliant and…be able to take a radioactive environment. We made a unitized bearing and mounting block combination that met application requirements. You won’t find this an any catalog!

The Engineering Edge – “New Design” Pillow Blocks from LM76!

Engineering edge - new design pillow block

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 new paper forward for cutting. After making the desired cut, the blade then passes through sharpeners below – located in the indexing table – where the linear bearings are located. As the blade passes through the sharpeners, it deposits a fine metal dust on the shafts. As the bearings pass over the shafts, the metallic grit invades the bearing – eventually leading to bearing failure. Because there are 32 pillow – 50mm – pillow block bearing assemblies, change-out is no small matter. LM76 designed an End Cap/Beryllium Scraper Seal kit which is retained in both ends of the pillow block. We were able to cut downtime by 90%. The customer is extremely pleased they found an answer. But the answer was not found in any catalog, it had to be designed and manufactured.

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

 

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 running at 3500 RPM mounted to the Y Axis – with a 12″ grinding wheel attached. The X Axis (52″ Stroke) runs on 440C stainless linear ball bearings that have special beryllium copper scraper seal cartridges while the Y Axis (4″ Stroke) employs profile rail guides with double scraper seal kits. Our customer did not want protective bellows so we had to ensure grinding debris would not cause bearing or screw/nut failures. On both axis, we employed our proprietary “Polymatrix, Double Preloaded Nuts” as opposed to recirculating ball nuts. Why LM76? Good question…we were the only company that got back to them with a thoughtful solution.

The Engineering Edge – One Piece FDA Linear Bearings and ETX Scrapers!

Engineering Edge -FDA Bearings/Scrapers

 

Motion Control – The Engineering Edge -Our latest linear bearing innovation is our FDL-ETX one piece bearing. ETX (FDA) Scraper Seals are machined into our Fluidline Linear Bearing. Our customer, a manufacturer of packaging machinery for the pharmaceutical industry, required FDA and washdown compliance. Further, they could not allow debris to include between the bearing and the shaft. They had been offered a number of catalog options that were close but no cigar! After reviewing the application, we approached them with this truly innovation option and it was well received and specified. At LM76 we distill down to the “right” design – we don’t saddle you with a catalog option.

Linear Motion Control Components – FDA/USDA/3-A Dairy Compliant

Linear Motion - Fluidline Linear Motion Bearings

 

Linear Motion – LM76 FluidLine Linear/Rotary bearings are FDA/USDA & 3A Dairy Complaint. They are also caustic wash down inert. FluidLine bearings one piece construction has benefits over traditional Teflon Composite lined aluminum bearings: if you have a wear situation, Teflon Composite Bearings have a .035″ Teflon Composite Liner. Once you wear through the liner, you are into the aluminum shell. FluidLine bearings will simply wear more and more until they are too sloppy and can replaced at your convenience. They are also less expensive in volume because there are fewer manufacturing operations. We can easily design and produce special ID’s, OD’s, Lengths and features such as flanges.
