On-Line Bearing Specifier Introduced



A 68-page handbook provides engineering application data about many aspects of miniature instrument bearings. Available at http://www.dynaroll.com, the handbook is divided into 21 sections that include materials, tolerances, lubrication, torque, noise, and mechanical testing. The reference guide, supplied by Dynaroll (San Fernando, CA), provides information about critical issues of the selection process, and addresses fitting, mounting, and assembly concerns. The on-line engineering handbook also features a tool that enables users to select bearings by inputting a few specifications. The specifier provides a short list of bearings matching the initial criteria that can be further pared down. When the desired bearing has been identified, a spec sheet can be printed out. Users can also find other information on Dynaroll's miniature and instrument bearings and assemblies, testing services, and contract manufacturing capabilities on the site.
