The SEALMASTER CRX-343 bearing insert is suitable for applications where bearings are exposed to corrosive materials and high-pressure wash down.
The engineering arsenal for improving the corrosion resistance of mounted bearings includes coatings, which wear, and stainless steel. The problem is that bearing races must be hardened, which compromises corrosion resistance.
The patented CRX-33 bearing insert combines the hardenability and load carrying capacity of 440C stainless steel with the corrosion resistance of 300 stainless steel. All exposed surfaces of the bearing are 316 stainless steel, while the ball paths of the bearing races are 440C stainless steel. The bearing also includes 440C stainless steel balls, a brass land-riding retainer, a synthetic food-grade lubricant, and a new high performance seal.

Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
