Webcast Now Available On-Demand from Wednesday, September 28, 2011


What Frictionless Motion Can Do For You
(And Your Mechanical Engineering Grade)

This webcast is for you if you want to get a jump on your mechanical engineering studies this semester. Why? Because it focuses on a subject you're not likely to hear a lot about in the classroom, but one that can give you a huge advantage moving forward: Frictionless Motion.



Yes, yes. We know. Frictionless motion is a practical impossibility. But what if you could get really, really close? Imagine the advantage you'll have in the lab with:

  • Zero Friction
  • Zero Wear
  • Straighter, Smoother, Silent Motion
  • Higher Speed Capability
  • Faster Acceleration
  • Higher Damping
  • No Need for Messy Lubrication

Well, you can get all these advantages. And we'll tell you precisely how. On September 28th, renowned precision engineer Drew Devitt will present Air Bearings 101: What Frictionless Motion Can Do For You (And Your Mechanical Engineering Grade). This interactive, one-hour webcast will give you a solid overview of the subject matter, complete with animation and video vignettes which will show you exactly how these precision components can work for you in a broad array of applications in many kinds of environments.

The presentation is entirely non-commercial. We're simply looking to give the next generation of mechanical engineers a solid foundation in frictionless motion fundamentals.

The session will close with a web-based question-and-answer session. At the conclusion of the webcast, Mr. Devitt will continue the Q&A on Facebook for as long as you have questions.


New Way Founder, Chairman and CTO


Drew Devitt is the founder, chairman, and chief technology officer of New Way Air Bearings, the world's leading independent manufacturer of modular air bearings.
