  • Reverse engineering fine-tunes NASCAR engine
    changes are reserved for the engine. For teams such as Richard Childress Racing -- home of Winston Cup drivers Kevin Harvick and Robby Gordon -- the challenge is to squeeze the most horsepower and torque possible out of an SB2 General Motors engine and stay within NASCAR rules. One of the newest tools
  • Brushless DC Motors
    . Trapezoidal-powered motors develop about 10% more torque than those on sine-wave power. Sinusoidal-powered motors, however, exhibit less torque ripple and operate smoother at low speed. Thus, sinusoidal-powered motors are often used for machining, grinding, coating, and other operations calling for fine surface
  • Century Limited 2000
    In the near future, traditional cars will be outsold by trendy SUVs (superfluous utility vehicles), if they aren't already. That's a shame. Fine automobiles such as the Buick Century 2000 get pushed aside because what they offer now seems out of style: good mileage and maneuverability, low cost
  • Stator Stakes Claim to Top Powder-Metal Prize
    consumption and the formation of exhaust gases, and improves engine performance, especially torque at low rpms. It has two splines, one for the timing-belt pulley and one for the VVT housing. The PM part is said to be substantially less expensive to make than its two-part predecessor despite the fact
  • F-150 Pickup Gets a New Heart
    To complement the newly redesigned 2004 Ford F-150, a new three-valve-per-cylinder 5.4-liter V8 will beat under the hood. The powerplant delivers 300 hp at 5,000 rpm and 365 lb-ft of torque at 3,750 rpm. The aluminum head has two intake valves and one exhaust valve per cylinder, for a total of 24
  • MICRO: Prod Tech news
    control and robotics, including a dual-arm robot, a high-precision stage, and high-speed focus system. It provides robust pattern recognition, fine thickness reproducibility, and high throughput. The Adixen A300 dry pump system offers high pumping speeds in a compact, space-saving package. The system
  • 2007 Suzuki SX4
    taller and beefier than subcompacts such as the Honda Fit and Ford Focus. The SX4 is built on a steel 4X4 unibody for stability but fine-tuned in Europe for nimbleness and crisp, responsive handling. The rigid body sits on reinforced suspension mounts, front MacPherson struts, a torsion beam rear
  • 2003 Buick Park Avenue Ultra
    probably suits its target audience just fine. Inside, the car has everything most drivers would ever need. (And for $42K, maybe it should.) The Ultra's standard 3.8-liter V6 is supercharged and puts out 240 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm, more than enough power for this full-sized sedan
