  • Application: Door Sensor-Fire, Safety Exit (.pdf)
    Normally reed sensors require a reed sensor and a magnet to carry out the sensing function. However, almost all emergency doors must be made of steel or a steel alloy. This steel interferes with the magnetic field shunting it from the reed sensor, thereby eliminating its usage in these applications.
  • Last SUV Standing: Sexy Murano Bests Macho Hummer H3
    , and rear-crash tests. Bob Yakushi, Director of Product Safety for Nissan North America Inc., credits the use of high-strength steel in the vehicle 's architecture for its outstanding performance. The Jeep Liberty, Jeep Wrangler four-door, and Kia Sorento, all 2008 models, were the worst performers
  • Give glue a go
    (a common method of construction in the industry). The second was constructed entirely using Lord Engineered Adhesives. The doors were hung to a heavy steel frame and a hole was drilled in the lower corner of each to simulate where a horse might kick the panel. Then technicians threaded a 3/4-ton winch
  • Mold Material - Lessons in the Use of Electroformed Nickel Tools - 05/05
    Machined and etched steel injection molds are the dominant tooling used for low- and mid-priced automotive interior and exterior parts; however, in mainly high-end vehicle manufacture, electroformed nickel is selected to produce tools for soft touch interiors because it can be used to duplicate

  • 3 Steps to Better Laser Maintenance
    a defective air dryer or an old compressor-might contaminate focal lenses faster than in the shop next door. In another example, the type of cutting, such as nitrogen-assisted cutting of aluminum or stainless steel, might require more frequent equipment maintenance checks.
