These include oil rig platforms in the North Sea, mining equipment in Africa and the International Space Station in orbit above the earth….Read More »December 22 2016
For part I click here For part II click here Bearing preload is critical in encoder spindle designs. Preload is the application of an axial load across a pair of bearings that removes the free internal clearance (or looseness) that is present in each bearing by design. In an encoder application, this preload forces the…Read More »December 9 2016
