NEW AIR BEARING TECHNOLOGIES FOR ROLL-TO-ROLL PRINTING APPLICATIONS

Article by IBS published in Coating International magazine, issue September 2019, about new air bearing technologies for roll-to-roll printing applications.

Rolling element bearings developed in the last century were a revolutionary improvement over the plain bearings that had been pushed to their limits in applications like electric motors and automobile wheels. Air bearings can likewise be seen to represent the next logical step in bearing design. These may be exploited by mechanical engineers to extend their design capabilities for precision manufacturing systems.
