NASA Testing Confirms Vacuum Conditions Pose No Problems for Power-Core(TM) Cast Nylon 12

Summary: Intech Corporation released a study this month completed by NASA showing that Power-Core Gravity Cast Nylon 12 doesn't out gas in vacuum environments. This makes Power-core™ components ideally suited for clean room environments. INTECH POWE-CORE Closter NJ – Of all the physical properties required of engineering polymers, vacuum stability does not come up all that often. Yet some...

Self Lubricating Composite Gear Improves Quality and Wear in Demanding Consumer-Goods Manufacturing Process

Closter, NJ: Orbital sanding machines with an original steel-on-steel grease lubricated gear drive design used in the manufacturing of toothbrushes attracted airborne particulate and caused the formation of a gritty paste-like dust/lubrication residue that settled on both product and gears to create an assortment of process maintenance and quality issues. In an effort to curb problems resulting...

Intech Designs a Low Inertia, Zero-Backlash Gear for a Timing Critical Application

Closter, NJ: When one of our customers introduced a new machine for corrugating paper products, they came to us with a critical dilemma. How could they maintain precise timing between two shafts with corrugating steel teeth to prevent them from smashing into each other. To find a solution, we focused on backlash free, low inertia gear design. The traditional backlash free gear design consists of...
