The latter comes with motorized linear and XY stages, rotary tables and stages, spindles, non-motorized components, and machining systems. The air-bearing positioners float on air to provide completely frictionless motion, resulting in negligible hysteresis or reversal error, straightness, flatness, and velocity stability.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/bearings/air-bearing-positioners-improve-movement-precision" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/bearings/air-bearing-positioners-improve-movement-precision#comments Products Bearings Mon, 06 Apr 2015 13:45:00 +0000 47911 at http://machinedesign.com Bearings Built for Wind Turbines http://machinedesign.com/whats-inside/bearings-built-wind-turbines <div class="node-body article-body">Engineers at The Timken Co. have designed UltraWind bearings, a line of tapered roller bearings that range up to 9.6 ft in diameter. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/whats-inside/bearings-built-wind-turbines" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/whats-inside/bearings-built-wind-turbines#comments What's Inside?
