The Potential of Polymer 3D Printing - Exploring Advanced Manufacturing Processes and Bearing Design

3D printing has evolved significantly over recent years, with much of the research effort placed in the materials science field. This has enabled the development of a whole range of high-performance polymers with mechanical characteristics similar to those of metal.

The Fall of Friction in Bearings

Design engineers have long searched for material coating methods to reduce friction. But, could the restructuring of newly found materials reduce friction on macroscopic scales? Here, Chris Johnson, managing director of EZO bearings supplier SMB Bearings, explains.
