  • Implenting RFID with Tie-Rod Cylinders
    The shutdown timing is critical, and the maintenance manager wants to make sure everything goes smoothly. Hydraulic cylinders are a critical part of the process, and during the shutdown, the manager has to replace a hydraulic cylinder's rod end wiper and seal to ensure continual future performance.
  • How to Lower Costs with Bearing Assemblies
    Original equipment manufacturers are constantly looking to reduce costs and streamline production. One way to accomplish both goals is through bearing assemblies. A bearing assembly is when two or more individual components, such as a tie rod and rod end, are fully assembled at the manufacturer
  • Orbital Forming - Does More For Less
    An unconventional fastening technique cuts the cost of many material forming and assembly applications. Cross-section view shows how orbital forming seals the ends of this tie rod. It also works well for ball joints and idler arms. The orbiting tool rotates at a fixed angle during orbital forming
  • Soft landings for pneumatic cylinders
    an impact between piston and end cap. In addition, once the needle valve is properly set, any change in weight, system pressure, or velocity affects cushion reaction, and means the valve must be readjusted. In spite of these limitations, adjustable cushions are one of the most common options on NFPA tie-rod
  • The Friction Welding Advantage
    industries require part orientation in which two or more pieces need to be friction welded together, yet need to maintain a specific relationship to one another. For example, in the automotive industry, there exists a double-end tie rod in which both joints must be oriented in the same plane. Recent
