  • Medical Device Link .
    High-performance cleaning equipment is suitable for parts with complex geometries, as it produces enough power to penetrate blind holes and hidden areas. Processing takes place within a controlled environment to help prevent recontamination. The units offer full automation and can clean metal
  • The Basics of Self-Clinching Fasteners
    Get the most out of these versatile fasteners Edited by Stephen J. Mraz Self-clinching fasteners were designed almost 70 years ago as way to attach components to thin sheet metal and ensure the connection would withstand hard tugs and torque loads. They are also useful for components
  • Self-Piercing Nuts
    These nuts are internally threaded, precision, work-hardened steel with external undercuts on two sides. Used in sheet-metal panels and installed by automatic machinery, they can be attached in open or blind locations. Self-piercing nuts have high resistance to torque, vibration, tension, and shear
  • Medical Device Link .
    . Many bare-metal stents required reintervention for restenosis, a premature closing of the treated vessel. The results of peer-reviewed double-blind studies indicate that reintervention occurs in more than 15% of vessels treated with a bare-metal stent but in less than 5% of patients treated with DES
  • Captive Nuts
    Captive, or self-retained, nuts are multiple-threaded fasteners used on many thin materials. They are good in blind locations, and can generally be attached without damaging finishes. Captive nuts can be attached in a number of ways, and designers should consider what tools or systems are needed
  • Joining Composites
    and components are so large that they preclude the use of the special lay-up tooling and curing equipment needed for most adhesive applications, making fasteners cost-effective for such cases. Rivets, pins, two-piece bolts, and blind fasteners made of titanium, stainless steel, and aluminum are all
  • Letters 2/19/2009
    Recently readers have been chock-full of questions. They want to know if daytime running lights consume too much gas and if an all-metal electric guitar presents a shock hazard. They also are curious as to why some older cars get better gas mileage than some brand-spanking new ones. Your editorial
