TriStar Plastics, the leader in engineered plastics solutions announces a new bearing failure technical paper, Why do Metal Bearings Fail? A guide to primary causes and tips for prevention. The guide explores the root causes of metal bearing failure in industrial equipment, and outlines key steps design engineers can take to avoid this costly challenge altogether.
“Metal bearings fail for reasons ranging from poor lubrication and maintenance to corrosion and contamination. And with each failure, manufacturers face soaring repair costs, not to mention the financial losses that occur during a sudden halt on the production line,” says Richard Cedrone, CEO of TriStar Plastics. “This guide gives engineers an overview of various bearing materials and designs so they can explore how each might contribute to – or completely eliminate ― a failure from the start,” he adds.
