TOL-O-MATIC's new B3W series actuator is built on the B3B bearing structure, but has a wider belt for longer strokes at faster speeds. Users can replace B3B actuators with this new model easily in most applications. Made for high-wear resistance, repeatable accuracy and high load capacities, it has a patented heavy-duty sealed-bearing system at both drive and idle pulleys, stainless-steel dust band for internal parts protection and a urethane steel belt. Consistent tracking is maintained for the life of the actuator.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
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.
