Advancements in bearing technology have allowed for smoother, more efficient food processing and packing lines. Avoiding part failure is crucial to minimising downtime and product loss, especially due to the time-sensitive nature of food safety.
This is why ensuring that adequate bearings are installed that are capable of withstanding the harsh environmental factors of industrial sites.
The repetitive movements of packing, filling, and palletising conveyors require robust, purpose-built bearing solutions. Ideally, these parts will be compatible with a broad range of housing and sealing options, and durable against thorough water and chemical washdown procedures.
Since the 1950s, Schaeffler has been pioneering expert bearing and linear guidance system design. Catering to the mining, automotive and manufacturing sectors, the company places high value on superior product and ongoing development to meet market demands. For 60 years, CBC has been a proud distributor of Schaeffler product across Australia, growing a strong collaborative relationship with Motion Australia to keep key industries moving forward.
Within the food and beverage sector, Schaeffler’s angular contact ball bearings are being applied across beer brewing, chocolate manufacturing, bakeries, and the dairy industry. The standard bearings fitted with machines and conveyors often rust and degrade within a few months, costing more for the business to replace with higher frequency. Investing in high performance, trusted bearing options from Schaeffler can guarantee longer service life, and less downtime due to fewer failures on site.
