Product News for Air Foil Bearings Nasa
NASA application of machined fused silica Materials change proves winner for NASA. Problem: Deep space-based research by NASA called for a high energy solar concentrator that could focus from 3.5" to a faceted point over a 12" length. Designers had initially tried sapphire as the material best suited to this application. However, it failed under Beta tests so NASA turned to a fused silica material but needed precise machining to ensure accuracy. Solution: NASA turned to Insaco. With over 55 years experience in diamond grinding... (read more)

Nelson Air Corp.
Air Bearing Bushings Air Bearing Bushings. Nelson Air's air bearing bushings can be used for both linear and rotary applications. The LB series of bearings utilize porous bronze air bearing surfaces, which provide excellent bearing stiffness and crash resistance. These bearings operate on standard precision ground shafting and deliver frictionless motion whether moving at low or high speeds. In addition to the standard sizes listed below, custom bushings can be supplied with different lengths and housings to meet (read more)
Nelson Air Corp.
Air Bearing Spindles Nelson Air has supplied a number of air bearing spindles for a variety of customers. These bearings provide good load capacity and extremely high stiffness with very low runout and are inherently frictionless. This makes them ideal for high speed precision applications. Typical Air Bearing Spindle Features: TIR of ±5 millionths of an inch (up to ±2 available). Load capacity from 1 lb to 350 lbs. Zero Speed to 80,000 rpm Available. Operating pressure from 30 psi to 90 psi. Material: Hardcoat... (read more)
Air Bearing Cylinders AB Air Bearings feature a specially shaped stainless steel piston, precisely fitted to a borosilicate glass cylinder, creating a true air bearing airflow effect around the piston. As little as 5 psi applied to the cylinder produces a stiff cushion of air that supports the piston and prevents it from coming in contact with the cylinder wall. The AB Air Bearing provides virtually unlimited piston life, super-clean operation, requires no lubrication, and nearly eliminates friction through the use... (read more)
Air Bearing Rotary Indexer Series RTH direct drive rotary stages provide superior angular positioning and are designed to eliminate backlash, friction and wear problems associated with worm, gear and belt drives. It combine axial brushless RotoLinear motoring modules and planar air bearings in a compact, direct drive configuration. Large area air bearings provide sufficient payload stiffness and maximizes performance in respect to wobble and run-out. Radially distributed RotoLinear motoring modules provide... (read more)

Master Bond, Inc.
UV Curable Epoxy Is NASA Low Outgassing Approved This unique formulation is easy to apply and has an advantageous high viscosity. It is not oxygen inhibited and cures rapidly at room temperature when exposed to UV light. Maximum UV absorption takes place in the 320-365nm range. It can be used in a wide array of optical, electro-optical and vacuum applications that until now have been off limits for UV curable compounds. To optimize low outgassing properties, UV10TKLO-2 should be preheated to 50°C for 15 minutes prior to use and then allowed to... (read more)
Master Bond, Inc.
Tough Epoxy Meets NASA Low Outgassing Requirements It meets NASA low outgassing specifications and has superior durability and dimensional stability. It is formulated to cure at elevated temperatures between 250°F and 300°F for 1 hour, and produces exceptional bonds for service over the wide temperature range of 4K to 400° F. These tough bonds are remarkably resistant to severe thermal cycling and many chemicals, including water, oil and various fuels. The hardened adhesive is a superb thermal conductor with a thermal conductivity of 9-10 BTU... (read more)
BEI Kimco Magnetics
Kimco Meets NASA Asteroid Scanner Requirements for different parameters. The mission will be a vital part of NASA ’s plans to find, study, capture and relocate an asteroid for exploration by astronauts. The BEI Kimco VCA is uniquely manufactured to custom requirements for high reliability and fail safe operation. Critical to the actuator design was meeting all performance requirements while staying within the size, weight and power limits. This was achieved in a housing measuring approximately 2 ” in diameter by 3... (read more)
