Publication: preventive maintenance of industrial gearboxes

Reliability of industrial gearboxes is highly important for efficient production in many applications. Frequently, machines are operated at demanding conditions twenty-four hours per day 7 seven days per week; hence, any expected breakdown will have enormous commercial impact – not only because of repair of the machine itself but especially because of production loss.

Analysis of lubricants, inspection with endoscopy and vibration measurement are powerful methods that help for early detection of possible damages and thus allow for properly planning and scheduling the required actions. This article describes how these methods work, their strong points and limitations and what needs to be considered for their proper application. Apart from that, recommendations on inspection frequency are given which are based on experience of Elgeti Engineering related to both inspection itself but also to failure analysis.

Bearing test rig

On VDI Conference "Agricultural Engineering", we expose our bearing endurance test rig EELPRAAX-80 which is suitable for lifetime testing of rolling contact bearings up to 80 mm outer diameter at axial, radial or combined loads.
Especially in agricultural equipment, there are numerous different bearing applications with a broad spectrum of requirements which do not only derive from speed and load but also from environmental influences. Apart from technical challenges, competition leads to the necessity of permanent cost reduction by e. g. approval of new suppliers for which reason plenty of testing is required - both for design validation and for quality verification. Here, customers can rely on our testing capacity and expertise or on our products which can be customized upon particular requirements.


VDI conference on drivetrains for vehicles

Bearing test rig EELPRAAX-80

On 21st amd 22nd of June, we exposed our bearing test rig  EELPRAAX-80 on VDI Conference "Drivetrains in Vehicles" in Friedrichshafen. This machine is designed for lifetime testing of bearings up to 80 mm outer diameter at radial, axial and combined loads why it is suitable especially for applications in passenger cars.

 


Article: Bearing testing for incoming inspection

EELPRAAX.jpg

For global sourcing of bearings, quality control of regular deliveries as well as evaluation of new suppliers are highly important. Thorough metallurgical and geometrical inspection which are most common methods for quality control require significant time and effort. Therefore, life testing of at least four samples can be significantly cheaper and quicker for especially small bearings.

Materials laboratory starts operation

Subsequent to moving into new facilities in autumn last year, our new materials laboratory has been pepared and equipped during the last weeks in order to start operation now. For the purpose of metallography, a cutting machine with 300 mm disc diameter, a mounting press and an automic grinding and polishing machine are now available. With these devices metallographic specimens can be taken from e. g. bearings and gears.

Metallography

Metallographic specimens will be investiged by optical microscopy in order determine degree of cleanliness, kind and size of inclusions and to identify material defects such as cracks, cavities etc. For investigation of microstructure, specimens have to be etched while the etching medium needs to be chosen according to material properties. For typical bearing steels, for example, nital etching (alcoholic resolution of nitric acid) is very common.
Apart from an optical microscope which allows amplification by up to 1000 times, a stereo loupe is available which is very helpful for investigation of fracture faces and worn surfaces.

Optical microscopes in materials laboratory

Article on raceway crowning of roller bearings

Contact pressure distribution in bearings is determined by micro-geometry of the contact surfaces, related axial and radial loads and by misalignment between shaft and housing, while especially cylindrical and tapered roller bearings are very sensitive for misalignment which can be caused by both initial manufacturing deviations or by elastic deflection due to operation conditions. In most applications, loads and misalignment can hardly be influenced why optimization of micro-geometry is very important for reaching proper contact pattern without any critical pressure peaks and thus providing sufficient lifetime of the bearing.

FEM Roller bearing

By means of finite-elements-method, contact pattern due to operational loads and deflections can be assessed which allows discussion of different concepts for micro-geometry. Subsequently both optimized geometry can be determined and influence of tolerances can be estimated. Based on that, detailed specifications for micro-geometry can be developed for each particular bearing and application.

As optimization based on sophisticated simulation of each particular case is very expensive, in a second step, a simplified method has been developed which allows transferring of results from one case to a family of similar applications. Subsequently, micro-geometry of roller bearings can be controlled by reasonable effort and precision which is sufficient for a broad spectrum of applications.
