Simulation Table's Bearings Support High Loads (.PDF Download)

The hydraulic simulation table designed by Moog Inc., E. Aurora, N.Y., can handle loads up to 1,500 lb. and vibrate at up to 100 Hz. It is comprised of a 7.1- х 6.1-ft. aluminum platform or tabletop and six hydraulic actuators. The actuators each put out 12.2 kip (54 kN) and ride on hydrostatic bearings with eight pockets, an improvement over four-pocket bearings. The new bearings can withstand higher side loads, which reduces maintenance
