Bearings, Blogging and Beginnings

Welcome to 2015

Norm Parker

Over the past year, Norm Parker of General Motors has been one of our most regular contributors, writing technical articles and answering "Ask the Expert" questions. When it comes to bearings, he's one of our go-to guys. Now we've found even more ways for Norm to share his insight. Beginning in 2015, he'll be adding regular posts to the PTE blog.

We're not yet sure exactly what topics will be covered, but we can promise good technical insight, a focus on bearings and mechanical power transmission components, and the occasional odd bit of trivia, humor and entertainment.

Of course, you're welcome to join the discussion. In fact, you can suggest some topics you'd like to hear about after you read Norm's first post.
