Launched on September 28, 2011, this New Way Air Bearings Web Site version 4.0 will be slightly different to everyone... so this site tour will have universal application. The site features a modified User Interface and Navigation structure that should make it easier than ever for visitors to find what they are looking for. Below, you'll find a quick overview of the site's seven sections and the functionalities that may be of interest to different types of site visitors.
An entirely new section of the web site introduced with the launch of Web Site 3.0, the Solutions section is designed to put air bearings into context for those who may be unfamiliar with New Way Porous Media™ air bearings. The Markets area is designed expressly to show those working in a specific market area how air bearings are currently being used. There is also an Applications section that shows specifically how air bearings can be utilized in applications which cross a number of markets or industries. Useful interlinks are also provided which enable visitors to easily identify which Products make which applications work in which markets.
The Products section of New Way Web Site 3.0 is designed to provide those who know New Way products with the most direct pathway to the information they need. This section is structured so visitors can easily distinguish between Components, Assemblies and Mounting Components, and provides interlinking pathways between them, where appropriate. There's also a Designed to Order section for New Way product concepts that require customer specifications prior to completion.
The Components section provides comprehensive, current information about each New Way Air Bearing standard product line, including: Air Bearings, Air Bushings, Vacuum Preloaded Air Bearings, Radial Air Bearings, and Air Bars.
The Assemblies section of the new web site covers the four types of New Way Linear Slides, including: Dovetail Slides, End-Supported Slides, and BoxWay Slides.
The Designed to Order section typically provides the most-current specifications for New Way's latest product concepts. Currently, this includes the AirWay Linear Motion Guide System and the Spherical Air Bearing.
The Mounting Components section of the new site covers all of the sub-components necessary to complete your New Way Air Bearing application, including: Air Supply Fittings, Air Supply Tubing, Stainless Steel Balls, Ball Mounting Screws, Nut Housings, Ball Retaining Clips, End Mounts, Flexure Mounts, Mounting Blocks, O-rings, Shafts, and a range of miscellaneous Air Gages, Regulators and Filters.
When you're ready to add air bearings to your design the Purchase section of the new web site is a good starting place.
