Schaeffler to showcase bearings at Engineering Design Show 2012

Visitors to stand D50 at the Engineering Design Show (10-11 October, 2012) at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, will be able to view a selection of linear, rotary and ball roller bearing ranges from Schaeffler (UK) Ltd. Schaeffler will be sharing the stand with another Schaeffler company, The Barden Corporation UK Ltd, a manufacturer of super precision ball bearings.

Experts from Schaeffler will be on hand throughout the show to provide advice and guidance on bearing and linear actuator selection, as well as to discuss specific application issues.

On the stand, Schaeffler will showcase a selection of linear actuators for multi-axis positioning and handling systems. Linear actuator options include telescopic and clamping actuators, linear tables, driven linear units and a range of linear accessories such as fasteners and connectors. These enable systems to be matched precisely with the application performance requirements of motors, gearboxes, sensors and controllers.

Schaeffler will also showcase its comprehensive range of ball bearings and roller bearings, including needle roller bearings, track rollers, bearings for screw drives, insert bearings and housed units, as well as X-life premium quality bearings, designed to provide increased load carrying capacity, higher rigidity, lower operating temperatures and reduced noise levels.

Visitors will also be able to see how Schaeffler's online bearing calculation software program, Bearinx, can be used to optimise designs. Schaeffler engineers will demonstrate the power of this software program by inviting visitors to enter their own application-specific design parameters.

Another focus on the stand is the "˜Glass Car', a software program developed by Schaeffler that demonstrates the mechanical moving parts on a typical passenger car. The software shows engine, chassis, wheel and powertrain components and how these interact. The software shows how Schaeffler components and systems on the vehicle are contributing to more compact, lightweight vehicle designs enabling reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

On 10th October (10.15-11.00am, Theatre One), Schaeffler will also be hosting a workshop. Stewart Davies, Principal Applications Engineer at Schaeffler UK, will host the workshop on Innovative bearing, precision component and system technologies are key to the success of low carbon powertrain designs. Attendees will gain an understanding of how the latest engine, chassis and transmission components and systems deliver significant improvements in both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The workshop will demonstrate how novel bearing concepts have replaced conventional bearings to contribute to more compact designs, improved engine efficiency, lighter weight vehicles and reduced manufacturing costs. A low-carbon case study will also highlight the significant contribution that customised hybrid bearing designs have made to the commercial success of a novel electric motor.
