Best Practices in Selecting and Maintaining Gear Reducers & Bearings:
Description:  How do you increase uptime and minimize downtime?  Downtime is often blamed on poor or missing maintenance. Undoubtedly, proper maintenance is important in keeping your conveyor in, but there are several operators with exceptional maintenance that struggle with downtime. A contributing and often overlooked cause of downtime is the conveyor’s gearing and bearing selection and proper maintenance for the application.  This session will discuss how to select gearing and bearing components correctly and how to safely maintain and inspect products.
