This mounting system now comes in 19 new sizes designed for larger parallel shaft helical and helical bevel gear units. The new sizes cover shaft diameters from 3.25-5 inches and 80-125 mm and come in electroless nickel or stainless steel. They use interchangeable bushings, making it cheaper to build machines for OEMs. The gear unit is also easy to remove, even after hours of operation in corrosive environments. Its small size can be mounted close to bearings or machine frames.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
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.
