  • Tensile Testing of Basalt Fibers Using a T-150 (.pdf)
    Basalt is a naturally occurring volcanic glass that has a nominal Young's modulus of 89 GPa.1 In the work described here, an Agilent T150 universal testing machine (UTM) was used to measure the Young's modulus and fracture strength of two types of basalt fi ber: one without binder and one
  • Caring for Cables
    Unprotected cables can twist, bind, and wear out fast. Machine tools, coordinate-measuring machines, palletizers, robots, ship-to-shore cranes, and laboratory medical equipment are just some of the applications for cable carriers. Cable carriers keep cables and hoses on translating and rotating
  • Mitigation of Stress Corrosion Cracking in Nuclear Weldments Using Low Plasticity Burnishing (.pdf)
    (PWR) and boiling water reactors (BWR). SCC is understood to be the result of a combination of susceptible material, exposure to a corrosive environment, and tensile stress above a threshold. Tensile residual stresses developed by prior machining and welding can accelerate SCC. A surface treatment
  • Products in the news at Hannover Fair
    . High-tensile synthetic fibers transmit forces as pure tensile loads. The wires have low thermal expansion, are chemical resistant, lubrication-free, and exhibit almost no wear. The modular units snap together and function similar to a ball joint. The power source for the robot arms is at the base
  • Powder-metallurgy awards of distinction
    In the June 21 issue of Machine Design we presented the Grand Prize winners of the annual Powder Metallurgy Design Excellence Awards handed out by the Metal Powder Industries Federation. Here are more innovative PM parts that captured the MPIF judges' eyes, winning Awards of Distinction
  • Controlled-expansion alloys for turbine engines
    New alloys withstand high temperatures with little thermal expansion. EDITED BY STEPHEN J. MRAZ A technician inspects a rough-machined aircraft engine ring made of Thermo-Span alloy on a coordinate-measuring machine. Thermo-Span and CTX-909 were heated to 677 C (1,250 F) for then held at room
  • Synchronous Belts
    , XL, L, H, XH, and XXH. The trapezoidal tooth profile first used on synchronous belts is recognized as standard. Belts with this configuration are commonly used in machine tools, textile machinery, home appliances, business equipment, and as camshaft drives in engines. Synchronous belts have a number
  • Let The Chips Fly
    Copper-rich alternatives to conventional AISI austenitic stainless steels sport similar mechanical and corrosion properties but are much easier to machine. Ugine Stainless & Alloys Inc. Regulator-adjustment screw made from 304Cu stainless steel is used in the soda industry to regulate soda pressure
