The History of Precision Ball Bearings

Today we use precision ball bearings for a variety of different things. Precision ball bearings help make sure that there is a high degree of control and predictability of movement. Ball bearings are the most commons means by which such friction reduction is accomplished. But it was not always this way. There was a very simple start to the precision ball bearings that we see today. Yes, before miniature bearings, roller bearings, steel ball bearings, and thrust bearings there were simply bearings. Old wooden rollers that supported objects like how precision bearings do. Some historians would say that the invention of bearings may even possibly predate the invention of the wheel. The oldest history of bearings starts with the Egyptians and how they used roller bearings. Continue reading

The IV and surgical latex tubing is a wonderful medical tool that has saved many lives. This past weekend, I witnessed the amazing power of IVs while my aunt was in the hospital.

When was the first IV used? What were early IVs made of? What did hospitals use before surgical latex tubing? Continue reading

When the Rubber Hits the Flow

In the radio industry the importance of being able to broadcast a signal clearly cannot be understated. There are many factors that can contribute to why something may interfere with a radio’s signal, including transmissions from other radio frequencies and signals from any number of electric devices in the area. This interference is often a result of a buildup of static electricity that gets transmitted through the wires that conduct the electricity for whatever electrical instrument one may be using. In this case, of course, it is a radio. Continue reading

Feel the Burn: Rubber Tubing and Toning

It’s sort of amazing to think of all the possible applications for rubber tubing. Just off the top of my head I think of garden hoses, shower fixtures, and chemistry lab equipment. These are only a fraction of their uses, though. I can’t say I use rubber tubing in these multiple ways on a daily basis, but I do use rubber tubing in one of its more domestically popular capacities almost daily, and that is in my exercise routine.

A Hearty Garden Hose

Living in a suburban setting, I am quickly becoming accustomed to the sight of a neighbor with a garden hose or lawn mower in hand, the two most popular items in my parent’s housing development. As soon as the weather is warm enough to switch from a heavy winter coat to a lighter spring one, suburbanites are out in force, primping up their lawns for the summer months. A couple, I have noticed, begin to water their lawns daily as soon as the snow has melted, as well as mowing it every other day. Needless to say, it is no surprise then that garden hoses are made from incredibly hearty and durable materials, such as an EPDM tube. Continue reading

Marketing as Easy as 1-2-3

When manufacturing something as simple and marketable as rubber tubing, it really is as easy as 1-2-3. Rubber tubing manufacturers are able to produce their products efficiently and inexpensively, meaning they are able to sell at low cost to the buyer while still making a profit. That leaves them a lot of room for creativity as far as choosing target audiences goes or creating new ways to utilize their various tubes. Both of these marketing strategies can be very helpful in our increasingly online universe, where everything is done with keystrokes rather than face to face or voice to voice interaction. The vital point to remember, whether your company is as versatile as rubber tubing or more limited, is designing a website that is easy to navigate, attractive to browse, and simple to order from.

The Many Uses of the Rubber Tube

A rubber tube could mean anything from a resistance device used in exercise classes to a flotation device used for relaxation down a river. Regarding the purposes of today’s blog, though, a rubber tube is a tool used to transport fluids from one location to another. Examples of this include the surgical tubing used in medical or laboratory contexts, such as in blood transfusions or science experiments; the slightly thicker tubing used to channel automotive fluids in your vehicle or used in various air pressure tools in construction, such as in air-pressure-driven nail guns; or, of course, something as familiar as the old garden hose in your backyard. The list goes on and we all know what a rubber tube is—and we can appreciate its many uses just as easily as large manufacturing industries do for the many, many applications they use and depend upon.

The Ins and Outs of the Rubber Hose

There’s no end to the benefits rubber hoses offer us—both in our homes, at our places of employment—especially if you’re in the manufacturing industry—and, of course, in our automobiles. In regards to the latter, an automotive hose is the channel that is used to transport automotive fluids and gases throughout our vehicles. These fluids include coolants, oxygen and fuel—each of which uses its own separate rubber hose, for obvious reasons. An example of a domestic context can be as simple as the garden hoses we use to water our lawns or as complicated as the the varying hoses we use in our plumbing systems. Continue reading

The Bells and Whistles of Rubber Tubing

Alexander Calder was an American sculptor from the mid 1900s who is known for both very large and very small pieces of work. The one I have in mind at the moment is of the latter category, named, appropriately enough, Calder’s Circus. It is, as the title implies, a miniature display of more than seventy small mobile and interactive figures and animals, in addition to almost 100 supplementary accompanying “bells and whistles”, such as carpets, flags, lamps, musical instruments, etc, many of which are handmade from rubber tubing. With this creation, Calder managed to combine his competing interests in engineering and art in one very original and fascinating piece. Calder’s Circus can be seen at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. Continue reading
