Forward-Looking Monitoring
Greg M. Jung   7/5/2013 11:31:17 PM

Especially impressed by the forward-looking bearing monitoring.  From the article, microscopic bearing damage can be detected immediately as it occurs (instead of being detected after bearing damage escalates into vibration and temperature issues).  I would imagine that many mission-critical applications could use this new technology to improve bearing performance, reliability and up-time.

I agree, this is impressive, but I would be more impressed if SKF had included even one image of the actual hardware so we could get a feel for size and volume necessary to accomodate it.  The link to SKF offers no additional information unforunately.

The ability to use HMIs with gesture controls is definitely an up and coming area for human machine interfaces.

 Very interesting post Lauren.  I am blown away be the SKF information.  This is truly forward thinking on their part.  One of the components of my job is to quantify component MTTF (mean time to failure) and MTBF (mean time between failure).  These bearings would be great indicators of bearing "status" and provide huge value-added for maintenance personnel and manufacturing engineers.  Again--excellent post.

I agree, bobjengr. The smart bearings are amazing, and serve as a great example of how traditional mechanical products can benefit from the addition of electronics. This is one more example of why future mechanical engineers need a cross-disciplinary education.
