Beyond Fatigue: A Closer Look at Why Bearings Fail
When bearings are designed and specified into an application, rating life is typically the primary factor that determines their suitability. While there are methods to incorporate additional environmental factors into bearing life calculation, the end result is still primarily a prediction of fatigue life. Produced in conjunction with SAE International, this presentation will explore some of the many elements – as well as their effects – that can contribute to premature bearing failure.
Into the Labyrinth: The Basics of Bearing Seals
Developed in cooperation with SAE International, this 10-minute presentation provides insight into the field of seal development and design, while examining how material and geometrical optimizations are implemented to enable the best possible performance for different applications. Viewers will gain an initial understanding of the effects of seal failure and why it is critical to maintain proper seal function.
Introduction to Standard and Custom Actuators
Produced in collaboration with Machine Design magazine, this 30-minute webinar provides an overview of electromechanical actuators, with a particular emphasis on sizing and designing linear actuator into custom applications. Included in this discussion is an examination of relevant factors such as size constraints, motion profiles, duty cycles and loads. Using various example applications, viewers can gain an understanding of the mechanics that allow actuator systems to function effectively.
