Back in 2013 SKF Industries, a bearing company, acquired Cooper Roller Bearings Co Ltd and become their parent company. After several years it has finally been decided that all Cooper Split Bearing ranges will now be marketed under the name SKF cooper. The newly branded SKF cooper products will still fully support solutions for mining, quarrying, construction, marine, and energy sectors. The marketing channels for the products which includes, responses to customer enquiries, after-sales support, and product supply will all be handled on a global basis through SKF sales from this point forward.
SKF Cooper split roller bearings are some of the best and most efficient bearings on the market. The roller bearings can be fitted, removed and inspected all without having to remove the equipment that surrounds the bearing, allowing for cheaper costs in maintenance and faster turn around time. The SKF cooper product line includes both split double row and split cylindrical roller bearings. These two products allow for an axial load in either direction and are both sealed in swivel cartridges allowing for mounting. The cartridges conform into a surface and can be sealed to the axis, allowing for very little movement, unlike a ball and socket joint. This type of design allows for extremely close tolerances to occur between the shaft and the housing, a sealing performance that is hands down one of the best anti- friction bearings in the industry.
The two companies have come a long way since 1907, a year that is recognized as monuments for both Cooper and SKF. The famous split rolling element bearing was first patented, and the first self-aligning bearing was created. The joining of these two companies, along with the products they are producing is a combination that only ensures engineering excellence.
Svenska Kullagerfabriekn AB (SKF) was established in 1907 with headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden. Today, it is the largest bearing manufacturer in the world employing around 45,000 people in almost 110 units. Besides bearings, SKF produces and distributes : linear motion products, seals, lubrication systems, maintenance products and condition monitoring.
The first center in the world capable of testing big size industrial bearings is located in Schweinfurt, Germany established by SKF. The investment costed a total of 40 million Euro and it is called Sven Wingquist Test Center. The purpose of it is creating the development operations more productive for customers, additionally upgrading bearing performance and expanding service life.
A steel disc weighting more than 120 tons plays the most important role in the middle of the two original systems : one of the systems is intended for the experiment of wind turbine main tunnel display. On the other hand, the second system will operate on testing the bearings used in different industrial areas like mining, construction, steel manufacturing and marine transport.
When it comes to choosing the correct type of hoses for aircrafts or vehicles the quality is often over looked when presented with a great bargain. These types of situations are often the breaking point to a malfunction mid operation. The two most common hoses in the industry are either fabricated from rubber or Teflon. Both hoses have significant qualities that make each of them a better choice for precision type work.
Rubber has been a prime material for agile hoses on the market and used most aviation uses. Rubber Is most commonly used in small compartments that Teflon can’t reach. Rubber can with stand a higher PSI at 3000 and appose to PSI to Teflon that is only able to 1500. In being able to with stand these higher types of PSIs that aircrafts emit rubber hoses are most efficiently used in hydraulic type areas. Rubber is made with reinforcement material known as Buna N which is synthetic rubber or a combination that is known as HSP the main factor to be able to withstand higher temperatures.
On the other hand, Teflon is a better choice for different type of aviation components that aircrafts also utilize. Teflon is used for more commonly used for minimal type work. Teflon is a material that does not have a shelf life which is one of the main reasons why operators choose it. Although, Teflon has an unlimited shelf life it is advisable to be aware that it does not have unlimited “on- aircraft life.” What may be a common misconception with Teflon would be thinking that it will last forever but not all the material In the entire hose lasts forever. The Teflon hoses are reinforced with other materials to help it hold its shape while in use.
Aluminum has been a dominant presence in the Aerospace industry for the last half century. In the past ten years, industries outside of Aerospace have also turned to this metal. David Harris of ALFED states the reason is due to the many benefits of this miracle metal. It is very light, yet strong, and easily manipulated into other extrustions. Its resistance to corrosion is good, and it can be joined together through methods such as welding and adhesive bonding. Aluminum can be painted as well as anodized to create a wide variety of finishes that will help to upgrade appearance and further protect from corrosion. It is also an excellent electricity and heat conductor.
The wealthy individuals in the automotive industry, despite its many features, like aluminum because it is lightweight. The minimization of weight leads to greater energy efficiency and a better looking product overall. For example, well renown automotive company, Ford, boasts that one of their trucks that is equipped with an aluminum body is almost seven hundred pounds lighter than other models.
There are a handful of different methods to join aluminum together: there is welding, gluing, and soldering, just to name a few. The best way to join aluminum together using aerospace industrial nuts and bolts depends on the aluminum that is being used. Frida Cullin Persson, who is the project manager at Nord-Lock Group says that steel and stainless-steel bolts can both be used with aluminum. Persson however states that it is recommended for users to check what type of aluminum is being used as well as the environment it will be used in.
The use of aluminum bolts over steel is uncommon. It is more common for standardized steel fasteners to be used instead because they are cheaper and stronger. Because aluminum is easily deformed and is unable to withstand high pressures, users should think to reduce the load when aluminum parts are clamped together user steel fasteners. Another possibility to help distribute the load over a wider area is putting a washer underneath the bolt head, which will allow for a greater clamp load.

Leonardo, a global high-tech company and one of the key players in Aerospace, Defense and Security, made a huge announcement at the 2017 Paris air show that should highly interest the military regarding aerospace parts. The brand new Mirach 40 otherwise known as the M-40 is an unmanned aircraft system based on the company’s already existing Mirach 100/5 target drone which already has acquired a place as the common threat simulator of the international Armed Forces (Military) including France, Italy and the U.K. The M-40 is a remotely-piloted aerial system (RPAS) that assists the Military in training by simulating a variety of airborne threat targets. This drone allows the military to “shoot down” the reusable M-40 in practical situations, allowing them to train and prepare a wide variety of weapon systems including Aerospace. This aerospace drone will allow customers such as the military to ‘do more with less’ by providing an aerospace performance like the Mirach 100/5 but at significantly reduced cost comparable to competitor, making it the perfect option for the military to use for training.
This new aerospace technology makes it very easy for the military to use because it requires very little piolet training, making the switch to the M-40 almost seamless. The M-40 aerospace drone will also allow the military to actively switch between drones allowing for a mixed fleet if desired. Not only is the M-40 offered at a competitive price, it all comes with a resourceful range of high-performance features. These features include low-altitude ‘sea skimming’, and the ability to execute high-g maneuvers, factors that are very important when the military considers purchasing affordable aerospace technology. The M-40 also has refined aerodynamics, allowing it to reach speeds that most two engine systems cannot. To make the M-40 one of the most efficient aerospace products on the market, it operates without pyrotechnics, even for launch and parachute deployment, something very important to consider. The M-40 is an aerospace product that would be very useful to the military.
