  • Custom bolt tensioners take the stress off users
    Just about all industries and equipment use bolted joints. But some applications are less forgiving of possible bolt failure than others. Examples of critical bolted joints are found in the Space Shuttle, bridge supports, oil pipe-lines, and nuclear power The good news is, properly tightened
  • Construction equipment and fluid power take center stage
    300 exhibitors, making it the largest event in North America for the motion-control industry. It is intended for professionals involved in all segments of the power transmission and control industries, including construction equipment, on and off-highway vehicles, mining and logging machinery
  • Basics of Design Engineering: Hydraulics New Sealing Systems Take the Heat
    fluid-power engineers design more robust cylinders with longer life and lower warranty costs. The good news is the next generation of mobile equipment should run cleaner, and probably use less fuel than today 's machines. The bad news is that design changes will, in turn, demand performance that exceeds
  • Green Technology: How to power an energy-efficient light
    if it weren't for electronics able to economically drive these bulbs. And there are still lessons being learned about how to get the cost out of illumination systems. Take fluorescent lighting, for example. The old-time ballasts powering fluorescent tubes were little more than transformers that energized
