Machinists Inc. Steps in to Provide Needed Fix for City of Seattle

Machinists Inc. had an opportunity to work on a special project in West Seattle with Seattle Public Utilities (SPU), where the aging, 1930s era water system, was giving the city of Seattle some problems. A pressure valve there has been leaking water into a reservoir for a number of years. Because of erosion, it had created a non-sealing surface, so it wouldn't seal tight. It meant the city of...

Slewing Bearing Alternatives with Heavy Duty Vee Rings.

Overviewing the advantages of Vee ring systems over traditional slewing ring bearings in applications that are less load dependent, this paper explains how Vee ring systems depend on Vee bearings running on a ring Vee to provide load carrying capacity and guidance. It shows how they are precision machined from specialized steel, how it is lubricated, and the utility of fixing holes to mount the system on a firm base. It illustrates how the number of bearing and its location around the ring running surface would determine its load carrying capacity with an example of a typical turntable arrangement having a direct axial load of 500 kg with 4 bearings positioned equally spaced around an external Vee ring design. Displaying in images the installation of Vee ring systems as compared to the requirements in mounting slewing ring systems, it concludes that Vee rings require minimal maintenance and offer considerable design flexibility, which in turn help the designer to reduce time and costs.
