Bally Ribbon Mills Offers Industrial Fabrics Ideal for Farm and Industrial Equipment Composite Bearings and Bushing Liners

Fibers impart abrasion resistant polymer on wear surface between the bearing and rotating shaft

Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM), an industry leader in the design, development, and manufacture of highly specialized engineered woven fabrics, offers unique fabrics from specialty fibers ideal for composite bearings and bushing liners in farm and industrial equipment. BRM's proprietary fabric bearing and bushing liner imparts an abrasion resistant polymer on the wear surface between the bearing and the rotating shaft in small motors, farm equipment, construction equipment, and scissor lifts. They are also a good choice for applications where the bearing is either molded within a polymer housing, must withstand very high stress loads, or is chosen over metallic roller bearings because composite bearings are virtually maintenance-free.


BRM's composite fabric contains two to three inherently different fibers to take advantage of each fiber's unique properties. The proprietary weave construction is designed to provide a maximum bond strength between the liner fabric and the bearing structure, while also providing the abrasion resistant layer at the wear surface.

IDS NXT ocean: grab, label, train, run AI

IDS NXT ocean: grab, label, train, run AI

Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts, e.g. apples with marks or color deviations. To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. IDS NXT ocean is a user-friendly all-one-one system which requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming. Only sample images and knowledge on how to evaluate them (e.g. "good apples" / "bad apples") are needed. This makes the start into AI-based image processing particularly easy. Camera hardware, software, infrastructure and support come from a single company. For beginners, IDS offer the IDS NXT ocean Creative Kit, which includes all components and workflows to create, train and run a neural net.
