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.
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
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.
