“The service life of a vibrating screen has been historically finite, due to the stress, force and movement of material,” says Michael Greelish, National Account Manager for the Mining, Quarrying, and Resources for CBC. “As a result, vibrating screens frequently fail to achieve reliability and longevity on quarrying operations.” Furthermore, Michael emphasises that the overall output and productivity of a quarrying operation will largely depend on the performance of the vibrating screen applications, and the performance...

CBC is part of the new wave of bearings solutions providers that work tirelessly to provide the latest in state-of-the-art bearings technologies to the industrial market, and one of the ways they achieve this is by partnering with world-leading bearings manufacturers like Schaeffler. From a manufacturing perspective, CBC Product Manager...

With populations growing rapidly around the globe and factories producing at higher levels than imaginable some decades ago, the risk of food contamination across those factories is higher than before. The machinery at the heart of those operations requires premium components that can ensure the...

It’s not uncommon for machinery in building material manufacturing to be exposed to large amounts of dust or water splashing. Be it in cement production plants, brick kilns or steel mills, heavy air-borne dust and high humidity can greatly impact the bearings’ performance. That is where...

Ever since Dr. Georg Schaeffler first invented caged needle roller bearings over 70 years ago, the bearings have found extensive applications in a range of industries. While commonly used for power transmission in the automotive industry, needle roller bearings are also used extensively in the building...

The recent coronavirus pandemic has once again brought to light the need for a resilient waste management sector that can facilitate the move towards a circular economy. The Australian Council of Recycling estimates that Australian households have thrown out as much as 10 per cent more...

Processes in building material manufacturing often involve high temperatures and critical stresses. Cement, tile and brick production processes require hammer mills to crush the aggregate material into smaller pieces and then vibrating screens to classify these crushed particles by size.

Rotating Bearings tend to be the ‘star’ components of production machinery, with the importance of their role discussed often. However, industry expert John Tawadros points out that linear bearing guidance systems are just as essential, particularly in production environments where high dynamic loads and contamination can impact production efficiency.

While Australia’s recycling sector has grown considerably since the 1990s, there is increased pressure on operators to recycle waste more efficiently – particularly in the wake of the China National Sword import restriction and a media focus on Australia’s waste management facilities1. This is why it’s essential to keep the rotating equipment at Recycling Plants in good service, says industrial bearing expert, Tony Tormey.
