All-round monitoring for rolling bearings

bearings-173-04-2014Chaeffler Industrial Aftermarket will make it possible in future to combine the monitoring and condition-based lubrication of rolling bearings in one innovative system combining grease and vibration diagnosis with a lubricator which is activated by the monitoring devices. This allows every critical change during operation to be detected and rectified at an early stage before damage to the rolling bearing occurs. This means comprehensive monitoring and a constant, optimum supply of grease, especially for machines which are difficult to access or critical in the event of failure. The intelligent interaction of monitoring and lubrication systems ensures reliable machine availability and also saves resources. When a rolling bearing has a low lubricating grease consumption of, its operating life is increased and the cost arising from expensive onsite maintenance work is reduced dramatically.
