The news you most requested
Summer is here. While some enjoy the sun by the pool, others have it work for them in their solar fields. If you want to minimise maintenance work, our igubal® pillow block bearings are just what you are looking for. Our white paper will show you exactly what their advantages are.
We have summarised the hottest new products from this year’s early summer Hannover Messe for you: the 12 most requested news items can be found in this newsletter.
And HUNGEXPO’s new multifunctional hall shows how an auditorium full of seating becomes a dance floor at the push of a button. This sophisticated technology, which uses our energy chains and cables, won the golden vector® award.
We hope you have a nice summer.
White paper: pillow block bearings in solar technology
Where there is lots of sunshine, solar technology is often used to generate energy. In addition to UV radiation, single-axis solar tracker bearings are also exposed to high and low temperatures, sand and dust. Ideally, they hold up for a long time without failures and with little maintenance effort. Read this white paper to find out what the requirements for mounting single-axis solar trackers are and why a pillow block bearing design made of high-performance plastic has proven itself here.
