Motion Industries, a distributor of industrial maintenance, repair, and operation (MRO) replacement parts, has released a new Tom’s Toolbox video that highlights the importance of proper handling and storage of bearings.
In the wind industry, many bearings are so large and expensive that proper storage is crucial, providing end users with the full bearing life that was intended. Tom’s Toolbox videos are available for viewing on Motion Industries’ MiHow2 YouTube channel, which was established in 2012.
“Proper Bearing Handling and Storage with SKF Bearings” provides the viewer guidelines on how to get the most out of their bearings before they are even installed. The video can now be seen on the MiHow2 channel, under the Tom’s Toolbox heading.
“Properly storing bearings helps to ensure that your investment pays off,” said Randy Breaux, Motion Industries’ Senior Vice President, Southern U.S. Operations, Corporate Marketing and Strategic Planning. “Proper storage extends the life of the bearing, and therefore reduces downtime.”
Tom’s Toolbox embodies the “how-to” format, but in shorter time snippets. In the series, the witty and informative host, Tom Clark, demonstrates a broad range of solutions designed to save viewers money and time, while keeping workers safe on the job. Each Tom’s Toolbox video short is filmed in a workshop setting or an appropriate offsite setting. The series is also available for viewing via Facebook and YouTube.
