  • Protecting national treasures is an open-and-shut case
    . The resulting design uses a combined counterbalance/mechanical linkage that fits between the wall and document stands. A special gooseneck arm attaches the hinges to the lid frames. Closed, the lids slope down at 25 and rotate up 60 to their full-open position. The design prompted no major changes
  • Joining Plastic
    ) into the parts. Only stronger plastics are suitable for this method since the joint must survive the strain of assembly, service load, and possible repeated use. This form of fastening is suitable only for lightly loaded, nonrigid assemblies where precision is not critical. Mechanical fasteners (screws
  • SMT Machine at Minarik a First for the U.S.
    lowers costs because it eliminates parts such as springs, hinges, and lubricants. He also maintains that virtually any product with several mechanical parts performing a motion is a candidate for compliant mechanisms. And compliant mechanisms can be made with a wide range of materials including steel
  • From the Safety Files: Poor dock leveler maintenance leads to injury
    A driver, having backed his truck up to the loading dock, set up the dockleveler, a ramp with an extension lip to match the dock's height to the truck's. As the lip was extending, it hit the parked truck. The mechanical lip-extender continued deploying the lip after the impact, and a springlike

    withstand UV exposure at 3,000 m (9,842 ft) and impacts at temperatures ranging from 20 C (68 F) in the hire-shops to subzero conditions on the slopes." Zytel ST801 is an unreinforced polyamide 66 from Wilmington, Del. It retains mechanical properties at temperatures down to 40 C (40 F) and thus
