wedge mounts from Advanced Antivibration Components (AAC) are designed for
precision leveling for heavy loads. Two mounts are designed for clean-room use and
two for general industrial applications. Two gentle inclines on the wedge
produce a large lifting force with small input of torque. During the level
adjustment, the head of the bolt does not move axially. This design improves
the operation and safety of using this product.
mounts, V11Z90MHW, have a load capacity range of 5608 (12364) to 7138
kgf (15736 lbf). The body is made of cast iron and the leveling adjustment bolt
is made of zinc plated steel. Their applications include: large air compressors,
rolling machines, transfer machines, gas turbines, nuclear reactors and
buildings and structures.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
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.
