Air Bearings 101 Webcast – On-Demand Version (2011-09-27)

Welcome to the October 7, 2011 edition of Drew’s Views. This video blog post covers the Air Bearings 101 Webcast that New Way broadcast on Tuesday, September 27th. We wanted to provide a simple means for you to download the on-demand version of this webcast. That’s what you’ll find here. In fact, if you click the ‘Read More’ link below, we’ll take you right to it.

This webcast covers the basics of Frictionless Motion®️. Designed specifically for mechanical engineering students and professors, it is also ideal for just about anyone who may be new to air bearings…or who needs a refresher course.

Air Bearings 101 is, essentially, the prerequisite for all higher-level precision engineering applications. The presentation is entirely non-commercial. New Way’s objective is to give the next generation of mechanical engineers a solid foundation in Frictionless Motion®️ fundamentals. This includes an overview of the characteristics they provide:

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

Mechanical Engineering is hard enough. Why not learn how to eliminate all the friction? The Air Bearings 101 webcast shows and tells you precisely how. Specifically, the presentation will cover:

  • Types of Air Bearings
  • Technical Benefits Air Bearings Provide
  • Load Capacity
  • Compensation Methods
  • Stiffness and Pre-Loading Methods
  • Available Configurations
  • And Much More

New Way CTO Drew Devitt serves as the featured presenter for this interactive webcast. It will give you a solid overview of the subject matter, complete with 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 session closes with a brief question-and-answer session.
