Designed to promote increased reliability and machine uptime by protecting against potential damage caused by the passage of electric currents in ac and dc motors, the INSOCOAT electrically-insulated rolling bearings feature a thin aluminum oxide layer. The layer is meant to form an excellent barrier against electric arcing, which typically causes fluting damage to roller and raceways or grease oxidation. They have performance tested to 1,000V dc with a minimum ohmic resistance of 50M.
This slideshow includes several versions of multi-materials machines, two different composites processes including one at microscale, and two vastly different metals processes. Potential game-changers down the line include three microscale processes.
Hosted CAD or PDM systems is an emerging technology that offers many advantages over traditional on premise workstation CAD configurations and is making many companies rethink how to deliver future CAD software solutions.
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.
