Air-Bearings Products Target Flat Panel Displays
from the Design News Trend Watch section
Modular air bearing products from New Way Air Bearing are specifically designed for the glass-handling requirements of Flat Panel Display (FPD) manufacturing. These products include flat panel conveyor air bearings for floating glass in high-speed applications, low airflow applications, and for applications under or near precision processes. The company says porous media air bearings provide advantages especially for coating or AOI applications in Gen-5 or higher manufacturing lines. New Way® conveyor air bearings also offer a non-contact stationary glass chuck solution and segmented design which creates array configuration alternatives to meet a wide range of machine designs.
