精密轴承制造商庆祝生产第一百万个干式真空泵轴承

精密轴承

Super precision bearings manufacturer, The Barden Corporation (UK) Ltd, has reached an important milestone after the company’s production plant in Plymouth, UK, produced its one millionth deep groove ball bearing for use in dry vacuum pumps.

上个月,百万分之一的轴承在普利茅斯的生产线上下线。 该工厂通过举办庆祝活动标志着这一里程碑,其中包括高级管理层的演讲以及向制造人员颁发纪念奖。

Manufactured at the Plymouth plant since 2002, Barden’s deep groove ceramic ball bearings are custom-engineered specifically for manufacturers of dry vacuum pumps. These bearings ensure high reliability of the pumps during critical production process, including the manufacture of semiconductors, solar panels and flat panel displays, as well as for vacuum degassing applications in metal processing.

“Reaching one million vacuum pump bearings is a tremendous achievement for Barden and is an added incentive for the Plymouth plant to keep up the excellent work,” said Nick Dowding, Business Development Manager at The Barden Corporation (UK) Ltd.

Since 2002, production of bearings for dry vacuum pumps at Plymouth has grown significantly. In 2012, production peaked at around 4,000 units per week. “End users of vacuum pumps require high reliability pumps. Under no circumstances can these pumps fail due to unreliable bearings, which would cause costly stoppages to their production processes. In semiconductor manufacturing, for example, these types of breakdowns can result in thousands of pounds of lost production,” states Dowding.

平板显示器,太阳能电池板和半导体都需要清洁的生产过程,不含任何可能对过程产生不利影响的污染物。 因此,工作室通常充满气体并使用干式真空泵抽空以产生工作真空。

在半导体制造中,蚀刻工具需要在真空室中操作,同时它们将电子电路的微型网格放置到硅晶片上。 这种类型的操作是如此复杂,以至于在工作开始之前必须从生产室中去除所有污染物。 因此,在许多半导体制造工厂中,在生产地板下安装多排干式真空泵是很常见的。

Barden engineers in the UK are able to devise bearing solutions that provide vacuum pump manufacturers with the high reliability their pumps require. But just as important, vacuum pump manufacturers also see Barden as a problem solver. As Dowding puts it: “Whilst the speed requirements on dry vacuum pump bearings are often lower than usual, other factors such as temperature, contamination and reliability mean that a special bearing design is necessary in order to meet the application requirements and harsh operating environment.”

“If required, we can engineer a solution for the customer, which includes a special heat treatment or coating for the bearings, which will provide temperature stability and high resistance to contaminants. We’ve also devised bearing solutions that increase the reliability even further by, for example, replacing the standard steel ball elements with ceramic balls, which improves lubrication. We’ve also engineered bearings that add value by reducing the customer’s assembly costs and pump component count.”
