The non-contact handling of glass is critical to the Flat Panel Display (FPD) and Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Panel manufacturing processes. This is due to yield-reducing damage which occurs any time the glass contacts a processing or conveying surface. New Way provides a line of scalable, modular solutions to this need.
Often, two or more New Way product lines are integrated into a single glass conveying, processing and/or inspection array. These products include: precision zone air bars; transition zone air bars; and flotation zone air bars.
Linear Motion Applications
The modularity of New Way air bearings is particularly well-suited to the creation of tailored linear motion solutions.
In fact, there are many ways to create frictionless linear motion with New Way products, including flat round or rectangular air bearings; vacuum preloaded air bearings;air bushings; even air bearing slides assemblies, like New Way’s dovetail, end-supported or boxway slides.
Rotary Motion Applications
Modularity enables New Way Porous Media™ air bearings to provide diverse and versatile solutions for rotary motion applications.
There are many ways to create frictionless rotary motion with New Way products, including the use of air bushings,
and four different styles of radial air bearings: concave width, concave length, convex width and convex length.
