Advances in bearing technology have enabled smoother and more efficient food processing and packaging lines. Avoiding part failures is critical to minimizing downtime and product loss, especially given the time-sensitive nature of food safety.
For this reason, care must be taken to install suitable bearings capable of withstanding the harsh environmental conditions of industrial sites.
The repetitive motions of packing, filling and palletizing conveyors require rugged, purpose-built bearing solutions. Ideally, these parts will be compatible with a wide range of housing and sealing options, and resistant to thorough water and chemical washing procedures.
Since the 1950s, Schaeffler was a pioneer in the design of bearing and linear guide systems. Catering to the mining, automotive and manufacturing sectors, the company places a high value on superior quality products and continuous development to meet market demands. For 60 years, Radio Canada has been a proud distributor of Schaeffler products across Australia, developing a strong collaborative relationship with Motion Australia to advance key industries.
In the food and beverage industry, Schaeffler angular contact ball bearings are used in beer brewing, chocolate manufacturing, bakeries and the dairy industry. Standard bearings fitted to machinery and conveyors often rust and degrade within months, costing the company more to replace them at a higher frequency. Investing in high-performance, reliable bearing options from Schaeffler can ensure longer life and less downtime through fewer field failures.
