  • Fundamentals of Annular Snap-Fit Joints
    Annular snap fits aren't well understood but can be a handy means of making assemblies easily disassembled or permanently joined together. d = outside diameter of rigid plug t = Hub wall thickness = Distance of the snap groove from the end of the hub The ridge geometry of the annular snap-fit
  • Compact Retaining Rings Fit into Tight Spaces
    . Their thin cross section results in minimal radial projection beyond a shaft, and lets them fit into shallower grooves than possible with regular snap rings and retaining rings. Yet the rings handle light to heavy loads and have high thrust capacity. The low-radial profile will not twist or deform under
  • Cooling is key to better molding
    into the test chamber through another 1.6-mm-diameter path. The sample is analyzed electrically in the test chamber for corrosive residues and the information is transmitted to the system computer to determine the sample's cleanliness. The C3 test cell combines a hollow body, snap-fit cap, electrode
  • Good vents make good housings
    and shapes, and in molded plastic and metal housings. Gore Protective Vents can be snap-fit, threaded, bolted, adhesive bonded, or heat/ultrasonic welded into place. One-micron latex spheres get caught in ePTFE membrane, the same material used in Gore vents. Watertight enclosures are no guarantee

  • Bearing Mounting
    For instrument bearings, certain special considerations should be emphasized: Accurate axial positioning of the shaft relative to the housing requires shoulders, snap rings, or bearing flanges. Diameter of a shaft or housing shoulder must be sufficient to ensure solid seating and support
  • Low-power backlighting
    dashes are also comparably simple. EL lamps create uniform lighting for both silhouette and traditional instrument clusters though they are less than 0.25-mm thick (about half the diameter of the lead in a typical mechanical pencil). They are flexible enough to fit into a medley of configurations
  • Captive Nuts
    before selecting the fastener. There are several categories of self-retained nuts. Plate or anchor nuts have mounting lugs which are riveted, welded, or screwed to the part. Caged nuts use a spring-steel cage that retains a standard nut. The cage may snap into a holder or clip over a panel edge
