  • Molded Plastic Gear Design
    Gear design and development is a complicated art. Ignore or miscalculate the operating and environmental effects and the likely result is a gear set that doesn't mesh properly, which will cause excessive noise, gear failure, or both. This is especially true for molded plastic gear design, where
  • Metal-to-Plastic Insertion of a Steel Shaft (.pdf)
    Induction heating provides hands-free heating that involves no operator skill, even distribution of heating and localized application of energy
  • Intro to Plastic Valves: Seals
    An O-ring is a round elastomeric ring. O-rings are ideally suited to be a compressed, static seal between non moving parts. O-rings can be used as a face seal on a valve, and used on rotating shafts. Use of o-rings on linear moving shafts is sometimes not recommended, due to the fact
  • Wear Capabilities and Limits of Plain Bearings
    Previous installments of TechTalk have discussed how using plastic bearings can help reduce wear and how different types of shaft materials affect wear and bearing life. In this installment, Iâ ll be discussing wear itself in more specific terms, and how different wear limits are dependent
  • Cost Savings in Process Environments with MECO Split Seals
    Mechanical seals are more than 100 years old, originating in 1905 when they were used in refrigeration compressors. Seals today contain, withstand, accommodate and survive a rotating shaft in a closed or confined space. The rotating shaft is necessary to transform raw ingredients into value-added
  • Monitoring Complex Extrusion Machinery Requires Focused Approach
    condition in order to avoid catastrophic failures and the collateral damage which often accompanies these unplanned events. Gearboxes used for extruding plastic pellets are among the most complex industrial machines. With many shafts, more gears and dozens of bearings all sharing one housing
  • How Does an Optical Encoder Work?
    The Optical Encoders typically consist of a rotating and a stationary member. The rotor is usually a metal, glass, or a plastic disc mounted on the encoder shaft. The disc has some kind of optical pattern, which is electronically decoded to generate position information. The rotor disc in absolute
  • Interphex Preview, Part Deux
    by utilizing a swinging motion instead of the customary rotating motion. It provides a hermetically sealed environment no rotating shaft seal and is ideal for low-shear, high-purity mixing applications. Components for High Purity Fluid Handling Process Flow Technologies (CPFT) specializes
