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.
When shopping for parts and components for your aerospace operations, you may eventually come across those that are considered “TSO parts”. As there are a multitude of specialized parts, procedures, standards, grades, and more involved in such a developed and standardized industry, being aware of each acronym’s meaning may be difficult. In this blog, we will discuss what TSO parts are, and how parts become considered as such.
Airplane lighting frameworks provide illumination to both outside and inside of an aircraft. Lights on the outside give light during such activities as arriving around evening time, examination of icing conditions, and security from midair impact. Interior lighting provides illumination to instruments, cockpits, lodges, and different areas involved by crewmembers and travelers. Certain unique lighting, for example, markers and cautioning lights, provide the aircraft status of gear. For more information on the aircraft lighting system, read here.
The Integrated Drive Generator system, or IDG, is a key power system found on aircraft that controls all of the engine hydraulic systems. An IDG consists of a Constant Speed Drive (CSD) and AC generator mounted side by side in a single housing assembly. The CSD uses controlled differential action to maintain the constant output speed necessary to power the generator. Because the IDG has such an important role in powering key components of the aircraft, its reliability is paramount. This blog will explain Integrated Drive Generator systems, how they work, and how to service them properly.
