Linear motion for ruggedized designs
On my very last visit at MD&M West 2016, I visited the Osborn booth. Steve Economos and and Dale Delay showed me Osborn Load Runners products …
Load Runners are essentially assemblies including treads and bearings on precision shafts to run along rails for linear-motion applications needing robust setups. We hope to hear more from this manufacturer in 2016 about key new applications.
MD&M West 2016 conclusion: Industry is thriving
All in all, MD&M West 2016 was a huge success. We heard from about half of the manufacturers we visited that foot traffic was quite good, and new innovations continue to spur new motion designs.
