  • The Pin
    An attempt is made to analyze strain and stress of different types of pins in more detail than the conventional consideration of the shear strength offers. The analysis reveals that there are cases in which the shear strength is not the criterion for the proper selection of size and type of pin
  • Semipermanent Pins
    Pins are typically used under primarily shear loading. They are separated into two groups: semipermanent and quick release. These general design rules apply to all types of semipermanent pins: Removal and installation of semipermanent pins require the application of pressure or the aid of tools
  • Shear Strengths of Representative Bayer MaterialScience Thermoplastics (.pdf)
    This Technical Information sets out the shear strengths of the most important thermoplastics produced by Bayer MaterialScience. It is necessary to know the shear strengths of a material when designing cutting and punching tools, rivet-type connections (bolts, pins, screws, hybrid technique
  • Torque Limiters Tamer Overloads (.pdf)
    As a machine designer, one of your top priorities should be to protect against operator injury and machinery damage due to overloads. Limiting the torque that can be transmitted through a system is one way to do it. A variety of torque limiters can do the job: from basic shear pins to friction
  • Torque limiters get fillers out of a jam
    Plymouth, Minn., prevent overloads and jam-ups in automated filling systems, without cumbersome shear pins and complex arrays of electronic limit switches. Monoblock filler systems handle liquids and solid particulates and process up to 600 containers/min in sizes 0.5 oz to 12 gallons. A Zero-Max
  • From the Safety Files: Poor dock leveler maintenance leads to injury
    that a truck and dockleveler could touch one another during normal operation, a safety fuse or shear pin should have been built into the mechanism to let the lip extender disengage if it encountered an obstacle. In fact, the dockleveler's manufacturer sold an
  • Riveter harnesses inertia
    , or keys, which engage matching slots running the length of the actuator's front end. A shear pin connects the rod and shaft coupler and breaks if an overload becomes imminent, acting like a fuse and failing before real damage is done. To set a rivet, the motor spins the flywheel to a user-determined
  • A better way to size bolts
    calculates information such as axial force, shear force, and bending moments to size the bolt. A close up of a hole in the valve flange shows where the software places beam and bar elements. The beam (boltshank) element is connected by bar elements to all nodes on the bolt and nut-contact face. One
