The company is introducing steering and shift linkage solutions (MS20271 and MS20270 series) focused on the cross- and needle-bearing design. They incorporate high-strength alloy steel yokes with permanently-sealed drawn cup needle bearings and a forged cross. The joint has rigid axial stiffness for push/pull loads. A variety of hub materials are available, including alloy with or without plating, stainless steel, forged steel, and extruded aluminum.
The series now can interface with a wider array of EtherNet/IP-compliant hardware across many industrial sectors, including factory automation systems, plastic injection molding apparatus, and materials-handling equipment.
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.
