There are multiple components that make up
the Wittenstein's lubrication system, each piece playing
a key part. The lubrication canister houses the lubrication for the type of
application being used. This canister comes in two sizes, depending on the
required dose to be dispersed. A sensor kit is attached to the lubrication
canister to notify when the lubrication is running low. For ease of use,
an exchange lubricator is available when the original lubrication runs
out. The lubrication flows from the canister to the mounting shaft through
a plastic hose connection. The mounting shaft contains holes which allow for
the lubrication to pass through to a felt pinion which disburses lubrication
onto either the pinion or the rack.

pinion systems, click here.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
