Bearing types : Grease less
In the previous blog, we introduced the types of bearings.
For example, bearings are used for drawers, it helps to move smoothly.
Today we would like to explain about the inner mechanism of bearing.

What's deep groove ball bearings?
The deep groove ball bearings are the most well-known bearings and which meet the requirements of high revolution and low noise.
These can be divided into 2 types of bearings: steel ones and plastic ones, and they can be used for several applications depending on the conditions.

Bearings are mechanical element located usually between a moving part and a stationary part.
For example, TOK's bearings are used for drawer of desk, refrigerator and sliding door etc.
Bearings can be sorted into 2 types: Sliding bearings and Rolling bearings.

Alternative product of Hysteresis Coupling
Hysteresis coupling is a mechanical product to transmit torque by using magnetic force.
For example, it would be used for packing machine and motor protect when over torque is loaded to.
However the hysteresis coupling might have disadvantage on cost-wise and dimension.

Coil spring torque limiter
What is structure of coil spring torque limiter?
A coil spring is press-fitted in the sleeve, and when it turns, it slides and generates torque. The more it tightens a coil spring, the more it generates torque, but the more loosen coil springs, the lower it generates torque. Continue Reading

Characteristics of temperature and speed dependence
Oil dampers have characteristics of temperature and speed dependence.
In general, the viscosity of liquid changes greatly with temperature. Especially the viscosity of oil changes markedly as temperature changes. The viscosity decreases as the temperature rises and the viscosity rises as it goes down. This phenomenon is called temperature characteristic. Continue Reading
