Advanced Mainshaft Bearing Solutions for Wind Turbines
Mainshaft bearings inside wind turbines are subjected to extremely harsh operating conditions that result in failure patterns which include surface-initiated fatigue, abrasive wear and uneven internal load distribution. This webinar will introduce you to the latest engineering advancements in spherical roller bearing design, including solutions that allow potentially damaging thrust to be safely transferred through the bearing to the housing support. The resulting reduction in torque, friction and heat significantly improves the overall efficiency of the system, thereby enabling the wind turbine to generate more power – more reliably!
Taming Torsionals in Today’s Commercial Vehicles
A combination of increasingly stringent emissions regulations and rising power density is pushing the torsional response of today's internal-combustion engines to ever higher limits.
This Tech Talk explores how torsional dampers and absorbers can be employed to control excessive torsional energy responses inside rotating shaft systems encountered in today's high-performance engines.
