Recommended for all machinery where alignment is critical, this patented steel chock adjusts for height as well as deviations in mounting surfaces. Installation eliminates parallel or angular soft foot problems, even when the skid is twisted. No machining of foundations or base frames is required, and in combination with laser alignment equipment, the design is said to reduce alignment time by as much as 50%. Self-locking after the foundation bolts are tightened due to friction in the thread, Vibracon® SM elements are good for turbines, diesel engines, motors and generators, gearboxes, compressors, and pumps.
Vibracon SM elements can be used instead of rigid steel chocks, shims, or epoxy resin chocks.

With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
