Emerson Industrial Automation (St. Louis, MO) released the Sealmaster(R) reduced maintenance bearings with lubricant circulation. The bearings have a surface that is tapered in a radial direction toward the bearing race so that lubricant is redirected back to the raceway. For more information, click here .

Haydon Switch & Instrument, Inc. (Waterbury, CT) released their size 11 hybrid linear actuators with encoder feedback. The optical incremental encoder design is available with two channel quadrature TTL squarewave outputs. The encoder is offered in resolutions ranging from 200 to 1,024 cycles per revolution or 800 to 4,096 pulses per revolution. For more information, click here .
