Keeping bearings in a CLEAN, DRY sealed container in their original packing until ready for use;
Avoiding contamination from fingers by using latex gloves or a barrier cream should be used when handling bearings or their mating parts; and
Taking extra care with open unshielded bearings.
We at Principle Engineering understand that it is not always possible to work in perfect conditions, that is why we hope these minimum standards aim to help you get the best results every time. If we can be of further assistance in the design or application please contact us.
The latest Sycotec newsletter offers free entrance to IPC DRIVES 2018 and also discusses Sycotec’s new drives with “buried magnets” that bring more power in the medium speed range and their motor element assemblies for high-speed generators.
ROTORS WITH BURIED MAGNETS
Classic electric motors with bowl-shaped surface magnets have proven their worth at high speeds. In the medium speed range up to 100 m/s, however, rotors with so-called “buried magnets” promise more power over a larger range of speeds – and at even more favourable series conditions. SycoTec is expanding its product range with this innovative technology. The first models can be seen at SPS IPC Drive in November.
Read all about the back story and advantages on their website: See the full article here.
Magnets are held by the rotor plate bringing the following advantages:
• No armouring necessary
• Air gap gets smaller
• Simpler magnet mounting
MOTOR ELEMENT ASSEMBLIES FOR HIGH SPEED GENERATORS
Heat recovery is being used in more and more areas as a way of converting waste heat into electricity. One of the largest builders of cruise ships also relies on SycoTec components in this area. The engine components currently produced in Leutkirch alone will contribute to a total output of 10 MW in the finished generators – enough to supply electricity for up to 20,000 households.

Thank you and congratulations GRW from everyone at Principle Engineering.
Sycotec have released their newest high-frequency motor spindles, the 4033 ER8 and 4036 DC T. With less weight and more compact dimensions, their much smaller space requirement makes them the ideal solution when strong power is needed in small installation spaces. Find more information on these new motor spindles here.
Sycotec this month unveiled their new website and catalogue, with a new ‘information blog’ on the way which aims to offer lots of additional information beyond purely technical documentation through curating a constantly growing knowledge forum.
Duplex Bearings increase system reliability through providing accurate alignment in both radial and axial directions. This can lead to the elimination of vibration and a higher load capacity (by using controlled stiffness within the duplex).
Congratulations to team Quantum, this years F1 in schools team from Denbigh High School who put in a fantastic effort to reach the national finals in Silverstone having won the regional title earlier this year.
A press release of the teams success can be found here.
This is the second year running we have proudly sponsored the team from Denbigh High School who never cease to amaze with their enthusiasm and hard work.
Want to now more about duplex pairs, thin section bearings or bearing lubrications? We’ve put together a collection of bearing and bearing assembly terms that we tend to get asked about to help decipher some of the jargon!
Please head here to have a look at our new glossary of ball bearing and bearing assembly terms or contact us for more.
SycoTec’s new high-frequency inverters provide up to a 40% increase in maximum torque
The new high-frequency inverters e@syDrive 4624, 4625 and 4626 enable the maximum torque in the lower speed range to be increased by up to 40% for all SycoTec motor spindles in the low-voltage range (below 50V AC and 70V DC operating voltage).
SycoTec high-frequency drives now come with yet another customisation option. In addition to the two SycoTec colours of green and red, there are a further five basic colours to choose from for the aluminium end caps of the pneumatic cylinders of our OEM motor spindles. From now on, you can order even smaller minimum quantities of your SycoTec high-frequency motor spindles in your chosen design colour from amongst seven different eloxal colours.
Principle Engineering are proudly supporting one of our local swim teams, Buckley Swimming Club, by helping towards the cost of new diving blocks. Good luck to all the swimmers and special thanks to George Finch; Chief Coach, Rachel and Arthur; team captains.
