Moog 6 DOF Test System Keeps Hazardous Cargo Safe During Ocean Voyages

Natural gas is viewed as the cleanest fuel when compared to other fossil fuels due to the reason that it contains very little sulfur content. Today natural gas constitutes 25% of the total fuel consumed over the world and the percentage is increasing every day. When you turn on a gas stove, you can recognize that you are burning natural gas from its pure blue flare. However you might not know that the natural gas you are using could be transported with a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) carrier from the other side of the world. Full Article

Beneath Beijing - Subway Train Driving Simulators Make Training More Realistic

From sophisticated high-payload flight simulators to leading-edge racing simulators for Formula One teams, Moog 6 Degrees-of-Freedom (6-DOF) motion bases are the tools of choice when effective, realistic training is essential. Recently, Moog’s 6-DOF simulation technology played a key role in a different kind of training environment: teaching Beijing’s newest subway drivers how to handle the city’s trains. Full Article

Accelerate your Product Development with a Moog Kinematics & Compliance Test System

In September 2008, Moog installed and commissioned a K&C Test System at a major OEM's site as the first of its kind. K&C stands for Kinematics and Compliance and the system is used for measuring the kinematics and compliance properties of a vehicle's suspension. The development of vehicle suspensions makes extensive use of CAD and CAE tools reducing the need of real-world prototypes. Later on in the development process the K&C Test System is used for design verification, which makes it an important addition to the chassis development process. Full Article
