Effectiveness, safety, customization, profitability – the diverse and complex requirements in drive and damping technology are constantly increasing and changing. How do development engineers approach them? What specific solutions do they create for different industrial and technological sectors? How are pioneering innovations successfully achieved that provide real added value? We discuss this and much more in our The Engineer's Blog.

Case Study: Safe Dimensioning of Locking Assemblies for the Extreme Loads in Applications with Belt Conveyor Pulleys

Ignoring induced forces or the faulty design of belt conveyor pulleys can cause high repair costs. Resulting damage may show itself in shaft breakage, axial movement or plastic deformation of the pulley bottom. Apart from that, downtime losses accrue which can quickly amount to several millions.

Market Talk 6/19 - Brexit Scenarios, the Arena of the Future, Virtual Reality Rides, and what eSports and Mercedes Benz have in common

Typically, engineers focus on the smallest of details. From time to time, however, it is worth taking a look at the big picture – or even beyond it. What are the concerns of the market? What is being talked about and above all: where does the journey lead to? Here is our overview.

Case Study: Application of HENFEL bearing housings in iron ore pellet roller screens

Before we dive into the case study, a little background information may be necessary. An iron ore pellet is a tiny iron ore ball (between 8 and 18mm of diameter) composed of pellet feed and iron ore fines, which are the finest forms of the iron ore, mixed with a flux (in Brazil usually limestone) and a thickener, which gives the pellets their consistency.
