GRAPHALLOY(reg) self-lubricating, graphite-based, metal-impregnated bearings can be used in repeat-use-food- contact equipment and maintain a constant low coefficient of friction over their entire operating lives. The bearings are not subject to seizures, binding, or sudden failure. In addition, they can withstand temperatures from -450 to 750F, can be immersed in liquids, and subjected to extreme pressures. GRAPHALLOY bearings are highly resistant to corrosion, abrasion, and oxidation and have the ability to function under adverse conditions in substances such as bleaching agents, oils, liquid oxygen, jet fuel, chemicals, and some molten materials.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
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.
