  • When Adhesives Stick Too Well
    that you know all too well the one universal truth of the adhesive formulator, manufacturer and applicator. That truth is this: When adhesives come in contact with unprotected equipment surfaces, they do precisely what they're designed to do - they stick. And in the process they will gum up the best laid
  • Avoiding Stick-Slip Chatter in Low-Speed Bearings
    Flexible rotors and thin lubricant films lead to noise and vibration. Stick-slip chatter commonly shows up on initial start of a machine when static friction in the bearings temporarily restrains shaft rotation. As the shaft then winds up, torsional force rises until it exceeds the restraining
  • A recipe for A Slick Design
    Low-friction coating technologies help designers improve the "touch " of mechanisms. Edited by Jean M. Hoffman Ergonomic investigations for vehicles in the design stage often begin with a programmable vehicle module. The PVM is a precision machine outfitted inside and out to look and feel like
  • "Air " on the side of smoothness
    Air bearings eliminate static friction and stick-slip that compromise precision. New Way Machine Components Inc. Standard porous air bearings from New Way come in various shapes and sizes. Porous technology makes the bearings more robust, easier to use, and affordable. Porous air bearings issue air
  • More Controllers, Fewer Cables
    problem associated with this arrangement is that cables bend and accelerate as the machine works. This causes undesirable temperature rise in the linear motor drives. Also, the cables' bend resistance is not constant, so there are stick-slip and randomly distributed effects that complicate the task
  • Medical Device Link .
    that are stronger than those manufactured with conventional means. Other researchers have tried to vibrate heated plastic, but doing so requires costly machine or mold changes. Coulter has found that vibrating the feed screw can achieve similar results without the need to vibrate the mold. Simple changes
  • Year in Review
    and employees, they can be a rewarding process if done properly. We asked MACHINE DESIGN readers to e-mail us their opinions on performance appraisals, and responses ranged from compliments to complaints. Some readers said "appraisals could be effective if properly executed, but require a lot of work
