Elgeti Engineering continues to offer trainee positions

Azubis

Elgeti Engineering has been an apprentice training company since 2015 and takes one to two industrial business management assistant trainees per year. This year, we have increased our engagement and are happy to welcome three highly motived young people to our team. We believe in the youth and are convinced that longterm investment in the career development of our employees is especially important for sustainable success. This is even more true in uncertain times like these. Reducing our available trainee slots, as many companies have done in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic, never came into question for us.

At the Hannover Messe, Meter Bearings and Elgeti Engineering announce their new partnership on bearing testing. Meter Bearings is a bearing manufacturer located in Robassomero, Italy (near Torino) and specializes in customized solutions based primarily on roller bearings. For testing their products, they will now rely on the services of Elgeti Engineering, which operates various endurance test rigs at their HQ in Aachen, Germany.

Massimo Ardissione says: "One of our strength is flexibility and the cooperation with Elgeti Engineering may help us to reduce the testing time and result in an improved experience of the bearing life and ability to support high loads during the application.” 

Hagen Elgeti adds: “Meter Bearings provides customized solutions for challenging applications which means that standard testing methods would quickly reach their limitations. We are very pleased that the flexibility of our test rigs can help such a dynamic company and we look forward to a fruitful and inspiring collaboration.”


FERSA-NKE purchases bearing endurance test rig by Elgeti Engineering

Bearing test rig

In order to expand their testing capabilities, FERSA-NKE purchases a bearing test rig EELPAX-200 by Elgeti Engineering GmbH. This testing machine is equipped with an enhanced measurement system which allows for the detection of the smallest spalling and thus provides the most precise test results. Additionally, the next generation control system provides many additional functions such as load cycles, easy switching between manual and automatic operation, integration of torque measurement, and improved data acquisition for easier post-processing.

Jesus Monforte, Sales Director of NKE says: "For FERSA Group, testing is a key to ensure product fitness to the application and support our advanced engineering projects. With this acquisition, we increase as well our in-house testing capacity demanded by our project pipeline. In this sense we count on our strong cooperation with Elgeti to develop test rigs according to our needs.”

Hagen Elgeti, Managing Director of Elgeti Engineering, adds: “Dynamic companies like Fersa Group drive us to continuously improve our technical solutions and therefore, we are very pleased that our latest concepts can help to support FERSA-NKE’s activities in research and quality control.”


Bearing Installation Training on Seminar Truck

Seminar truck

Faulty installation of bearings is one of the most frequent root cause for premature failures. Therefore, we offer you an indivual training on our seminar truck at your location in Europe. You will lean to properly use tools like inductive heater or workshop press, to safely avoid damages and to adjust axial or radial clearance.

In particular, the following exercises will be conducted: 

- Changing the ball bearings of an electric motor

- Mounting cylindrical and spherical roller bearings

- Measuring and adjusting axial clearance of an assembly

- Measuring and adnusting of radial clearance of spherical roller bearings with conical bore

This seminar takes about 4 h and is dedicated to groups of up to four persons. Apart from that, we could refer in particular to your special applications. Please feel free to contact us directly for coordination of details according to your requirments!
