Fabreeka Lunch Seminar
Bearing Pads, Thermal Bridging, and Vibration Control
by Steve McCuiston
Fabreeka has been a leader in the isolation of shock and vibration as well as well as bearing pads since 1936. Our expertise in the area of vibration isolation has been useful to structural engineers as well as mechanical engineers. Since vibration problems are generally discovered after the structure is built, our goal is to supply creative solutions that don't involve making significant modifications to the structure.
Four years ago, Fabreeka came out with a thermal break material that will mitigate thermal bridging. With the changes in energy codes, this product has been Fabreeka's hottest growing product.
Our speaker, Steve McCuiston, has been with Fabreeks Intl. for 20 years. He is currently in charge of business development, specifically working with consulting engineers. Steve has conducted over 250 presentations over the last three years. Steve has also been a high school girls varsity baskatball coach, and led his team to a 33-1 record, and an Illinois state championship in 2009. Steve will be discussing:
1. Thermal Break Material,
A. Thermal bridging causes
B. Thermal break material characteristics
2. Bearing Pads
A. Characteristics and differences
B. Typical applications
C. How to design a slide bearing
3. Vibration Control
A. Load/deflection vs. natural frequency
B. Resonant frequency issues
C. Structural response/structure borne vibration

Due to an increase in our costs, we have had to change the price for the luncheon from $18.00 to $20.00. Should you have any special dietary needs, please contact Andy DiLeo at ADileo@hmwstructural.com to coordinate.
