When your machine design requires a specific linear motion component such as a bearing, ball screw, actuator or shafting, it can often be time-consuming and frustrating trying to find the right model to fit - especially when choosing from thousands of part numbers. In these situations, misapplications can be made that end up costing money and even more time.

This webinar will present several design scenarios in which you can use self-service, online sizing and selection tools to quickly and easily find the correct parts for your machines. These intuitive tools have grown in popularity over the years as their capabilities have become increasingly robust, helping design engineers make the right selections on the first try and deliver their projects on time and on budget.

Key Takeaways

  • Discover online tools that help you easily size and select your linear motion components based on proven engineering calculations.
  • Learn how to reduce your component selection time from hours to less than 15 minutes.
  • Gain insight to avoid common pitfalls such as misapplication that cost you time and money.
