Bolts are a type of fasteners used to hold two objects together. They are used in a broad range of applications, but there are many factors to consider while selecting the right bolt for a certain use. Among these factors are the bolt’s shape, size, thread type, length, material, coating, and class of fit. However, in addition to these factors, the bolt grade should also be considered. You may be wondering what a bolt grade refers to and why it is so important. In this blog, we will discuss bolt grades in detail.
With conveyor belts and their related systems, a large amount of materials and items may be transported through automatic means. From manufacturing facilities to airport baggage claim systems, conveyors can increase the efficiency of a workplace by lowering safety risks, minimizing human errors, and reducing labor costs. With the various types of conveyor systems available on the market, understanding their differences and applications can help you make a more well-informed decision for your operations.
On a helicopter, like any aircraft, there are certain parts that are more important than others. As such, you may find yourself buying the same parts more often than expected. In this blog, we will discuss, in no particular order, the nine most commonly purchased helicopter parts and components.
Optoelectronics is a branch of study and application centered around electronic devices that are capable of sourcing, detecting, and controlling light. From LED displays to remote controls, optoelectronics encompass many of the photonic devices that we rely on in consumer, commercial, and industrial sectors alike. In this blog, we will provide an overview of some of the various types of optoelectronic devices that are commonly available, allowing for you to better understand their functionalities and uses.
With the rapid speed at which fiber optic devices are becoming a widespread standard over those with conventional copper wiring, many industries and applications are facing constant improvements in their data transmission speeds, signal capabilities, and more. While standard consumers and businesses have both become somewhat familiar with fiber optics, many may not be aware of the various internal components that enable them to be so useful. With fiber optic transmission of signals, there can sometimes be an abundance of light that is delivered through a receiver, and thus it must be reduced for optimal power levels and functionality. With a device known as a fiber optic attenuator, the power level of such signals can be controlled, leading to more efficient operation.
You might be familiar with what a gasket is and what it can be used for but if you are a novice on this topic, you can learn more about gaskets, different types of gaskets and gasket parts in the article below. A gasket is a mechanical seal that occupies the space between two or more conjoining surfaces, and are typically utilized to stop leakages from occurring. They can also be used to stop leakage from mated materials that are experiencing compression. Gaskets can leave room for conjoined surfaces that may not initially be fitted, as a gasket can fill in any irregularities to make up for any space.
A riveting machine is a machine used to automatically set or squeeze rivets in order to join materials together. When compared to manual riveting, a riveting machine offers greater consistency, productivity, and lower cost. Today there are so many types of riveting machines available that it can be difficult to know which is the right one for you. This blog will explore a few types of riveting machines and their unique characteristics.
As aircraft utilize more electrical systems as technology continues to develop, their reliance on electricity from power sources is becoming ever more important. Aircraft batteries are implemented in aircraft of all types, providing for ground power, emergency power, fault clearing, and more. Depending on the aircraft and its needs, various aircraft battery types may be installed. In general, the two most common aircraft battery types are the lead acid battery and NiCd battery.
The aircraft turbine engine is a common power plant type for a number of jet aircraft, providing for their ability to generate thrust and propulsion through exhaust. As with any aircraft engine or component, the turbine engine needs to be regularly inspected and maintained as to ensure that it performs optimally and safely. The procedures often vary depending on the design and construction of the engine, and it is highly recommended to follow instructions as set out by the specific manufacturer that produced the engine in question. Nevertheless, there are some basic procedures that carry over across most turbine engine types, and we will discuss these as to provide general information to help you become more familiar with such maintenance.
Bearings are machine elements implemented to guide motion and minimize friction between moving parts. They typically provide either free linear movement for a moving part, or free rotation around a stationary axis and are classified by their operation, their movement, and the directions of the forces applied to the parts. Bearings are critical parts of any type of machinery. However, like any machine component, they can break. This blog will discuss seven of the most common ways aircraft bearings fail, and how they can be prevented.
