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.
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.
