Mechanical fasteners are components that are capable of fastening or affixing two or more parts together in an assembly. Fasteners may provide permanent or non-permanent joints depending on the application, and many mechanical fasteners provide a non-permanent connection that permits dismantling without damage. Depending on the industry, application, and operating conditions of the assembly, there are numerous fasteners that may be used for creating a joint. In this blog, we will discuss the most common mechanical fasteners that are used for assemblies, allowing you to understand their differences and applications.
Bearings are components that are crucial to countless assemblies, ensuring that friction is reduced and that motion is constrained to specific movements. For automobiles engines in particular, bearings are paramount to the functionality of equipment such as the crankshaft, allowing it to be supported and protected from the forces of friction. As the failure of crankshaft bearings can quickly lead to engine damage or failure, it is important that they are inspected and maintained regularly.
Fasteners are hardware components that serve countless industries, allowing for two or more parts to be securely joined together. From the bolts used to assemble aircraft skin sections to screws that attach piping to walls, there are numerous fastener types that each present their varying characteristics and attachment methods which may benefit different applications. To help you choose the right fasteners for your application, we will discuss some of the common considerations that should be made before making a final decision.
When an assembly features bearings, nuts, and bolts, it is important that such components never become loose due to the forces of vibration or other factors. With a type of nut known as a lock nut bearing, bearing locknut, or locknut, assemblies are provided vibration resistance and may have their bearings and other components located onto an adapter or shaft. As components that are found in countless assemblies and applications ranging from the securing of aircraft bearings to the pulleys of industrial machines, understanding how the lock nut bearing functions is crucial for anyone operating such machinery.
While screws seem like simple threaded fastener components that may be used for construction, the diverse applications that they serve can often demand rigorous designs and construction to withstand the various forces assemblies are subjected to. As hardware fasteners that may attach two or more components securely together through friction and traction, screws can be used for the construction of aircraft, electronics, machinery, infrastructure, and much more. In this blog, we will provide an overview of screws, allowing you to best be aware of their various types, designs, materials, applications, and more.
Fasteners such as screws, bolts, nuts, and rivets are critical in many modern industrial applications. As industrial technology has continued to evolve, the need for advanced specialized fasteners has become more and more prevalent. As such, there are now many specialty fasteners available for a broad range of specific applications. In this blog, we will discuss one such fastener: the pin.
The cable assembly and wire harness are two electronic components that many consider the same thing. However, they are in fact somewhat different. A wire harness is a grouping of wires that are designed to transmit signals or electrical power. A wire harness typically has multiple branches or ends that can go off in multiple directions with several terminations on every branch. So, how is this different from a cable assembly? In this blog, we will differentiate cable assemblies from wire harnesses, explain the components of a cable assembly, and discuss its many applications.
Hoses and pipes are two types of tubes commonly used to transport fluids. Both of them operate in a similar manner: they are used to convey fluids from one place to another, moving them through a sterile medium free from contamination. Hoses and pipes can both serve as a pathway for varying types of fluids and are both used in many different industries. Despite achieving more or less the same thing, the two are used in different applications, made from different materials, and designed for different purposes. The main differences between hoses and pipes are their composition, flexibility, design, reinforcement, and application. This blog will cover each of these differences, providing further details on each of them.
A Fixed Base Operator, or FBO, is a particularly luxurious perk of private jet travel. FBOs are essentially private terminals located in a stand-alone building away from the main terminal of an airport, where an array of services and amenities are available to private jet passengers, crew, and the aircraft themselves.
If you spend enough time in or around the world of aviation, you will eventually hear the term TSO used. In an industry with so many highly-specialized parts and practices, the many acronyms and abbreviations can become hard to remember. This blog will cover the TSO in general, as well as the specific TSO-C173.
