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.
