As indispensable tools in various industries, pullers are devices that provide a reliable and efficient means to remove bearings, gears, pulleys, and other components from shafts and housings. With different types of pullers available on the market, it is essential to understand their features and characteristics in order to choose the right one for the job. To better understand their distinct uses, we will delve into their most common types and highlight key features so that you can select the appropriate puller for your specific application.
Rotary-wing aircraft, also called rotorcraft, use rotating blades to generate lift and thrust. Their stability is maintained by the tail rotor, which balances the torque produced by the main rotor, both of which are powered by the engine. They are capable of multiple maneuvers like vertical takeoff and landing, hovering, and traveling in any direction, making them useful during operations that lack a runway or smooth terrain where traditional methods of takeoff and landing would otherwise work. Rotary-wing aircraft find use in transportation, search and rescue missions, medical evacuation, firefighting, and military operations. Read on to learn more about different types of rotary-wing aircraft.
When one is working with systems that involve the use of hydraulics, pneumatics, or the general movement of fluids, it is often essential that proper valves are in place to effectively control flow. Depending on the application in question, there are a wide variety of valves that one may take advantage of, each presenting a different design and varying capabilities. For example, hydraulic systems always feature what are known as plug valves, those of which ensure smooth and efficient operations with their on-off, diverting, and throttling capabilities. To help you better understand the role of plug valves and whether or not they may be a good choice for your needs, we will discuss such assembly components in brief detail.
As the moving parts in an assembly, actuators are foundational to nearly all industrial operations. The term “actuator assembly” is generally used to describe mechanical systems which function as part of a larger network. This may include the actuator, along with all of its related output transfer linkages, wiring, or hoses. The description can also be used to describe the actuator controller, even though it is usually considered a separate device. However, in most cases, an actuator assembly consists of the physical actuator mechanism, an actuator arm, transfer link, and any connected power supply components.
Printed circuit boards have radically changed how we design and manufacture electronics since their invention, serving as a medium that mechanically supports and electrically connects electronic components. With printed circuit boards, we have been able to downsize devices while simultaneously bolstering their power, making printed circuit boards a staple of electronics. To manufacture printed circuit boards, a process known as circuit card assembly (CCA) is carried out. With this manufacturing technique, raw materials can be transformed into reliable boards for aerospace, military, and consumer markets alike. In this blog, we will discuss circuit card assembly in more detail, allowing you to have a better understanding of how it is carried out.
