What Is a Conveyor Air Bearing?

Now called New Way® Air Bars, this animation example shows how the combination of air and vacuum enables both the noncontact conveyance and sub-micron level control of substrates during a Flat Panel Display (FPD) manufacturing process. 0:49 (No Audio). 

What Is a Radial Bearing?

In this animated example of a Computed Tomography (CT) Scanner, New Way’s Radial Bearings provide noncontact, high-speed rotary motion through a 5-micron air film, without noise and wear, improving operations. 1:09 (No Audio).
