panel discussion

Standardization of Gas Bearing Components,
Definitions or Procedures?
Gas bearing pads from different vendors seem very similar. Lots are used in quasi standard applications like measuring machines. Is standardization possible and advantageous? The same holds for performance specifications of gas bearings and measuring procedures.
This will be discussed with representatives from manufacturers and customers.

The discussion will be introduced and moderated by Wolfram Runge.
