  • Tougher and stronger glue
    The latest structural adhesives replace rivets, bolts, welding, and other traditional fastening methods. Edited by Jean M. Hoffman You will probably never live to see the day when cars and trucks are completely glued together, with no mechanical fasteners to be found. But more and more connections
  • Understanding the Nut Factor in Threaded-Fastener Torque-Tension Relationship
    load that prevents movement between joint members. Such movement is arguably the most common cause of structural joint failures. The relationship between applied torque and the tension created is described by the relationship: T = K x D x F = nut factor, sometimes called the friction factor, = bolt
  • Cannon Boiler Works Uses FARO for Unique Application with Great Faith
    and finned tubes with pipe headers on the tube side. CBW must measure and report the tube side flanges relative to the centers of the structural flange bolt hole patterns. They must also report the integrity of the structural flange bolt hole patterns themselves as they tend to distort after welding
  • Casing the extrusion joint
    compartment in Ford GT supercars. Some 35 different extruded profiles from form a stiff, strong, and lightweight platform. Chassis are assembled using a combination of robotic MIG and friction stir welding. In addition, bolt-on extrusions add structural support to the engine compartment and also
  • Epoxy Adhesives Hold Their Own
    adhesive-bonding technologies are increasingly pulling their weight in high-performance structural assemblies. Besides replacing traditional mechanical fasteners like rivets, nuts and bolts, and screws, they are competing with other bonding techniques like brazing and welding. Adhesives can improve product

  • Why is the cylinder head warping? FEA has evidence
    ., used multiphysics FEA software from Pittsburgh, to study the thermal and structural behavior of a prototype diesel-engine cylinder head designed for lower heat rejection and increased power density. In the prototype, temperatures on a stainlesssteel cylinder head were measured at 1,600 F, almost
  • Servosystem deftly handles Airbus wings
    ' manufacturing team in Broughton, U.K., and Mukilteo, Wash., the prime contractor for wing-assembly automation tools. Wings are a structural framework of spars and ribs covered with metal panels. The panels consist of a curved, aluminumalloy skin reinforced by stringers that ensure shape and strength. The tricky
  • The basics of modular conveyors
    Modular conveyors make sense when packagingline logistics change frequently. At one time conveyors were fabricated in permanent configurations. Structural members were usually welded from milled or stainless steel, or aluminum. Newer modular conveyors, however, use extruded aluminum framing
  • Attachment anxiety
    widespread use in appliance-manufacturing applications for structural bonding, cylindrical assembly, threadlocking, flange and thread sealing, thermal management, wire bonding and harnessing, gasketing, and sealing. Adhesives can bond dissimilar materials, reduce component inventory, and decrease total
