By Srinivas Reddy Hadley Industries manufactures cold-roll formed products, primarily for the building and construction industries. The company developed and patented a cold-forming process known as UltraSTEEL, which significantly improves mechanical and structural properties of strip steel by imparting a dimpling pattern prior to the roll forming operation. UltraSTEEL uses a pair of roll tools
Spring Pins are used in many different assemblies for a variety of reasons: to serve as hinge pins and axles, to align components, or simply to fasten multiple components together. Spring Pins are formed by rolling and configuring a metal strip into a cylindrical shape that allows for radial compression and recovery. When properly implemented,
In order to carry out a full-scale fatigue test of the composite structures of its Cseries aircraft carbon fiber wing, Bombardier Aerospace turned to Moog Industrial Group, a part of Moog Inc., to supply an aerospace test system. Bombardier Aerospace, which is responsible for the design, manufacture and assembly of the CSeries aircraft advanced composite
When selecting a brake to control unbalanced or vertical loads, designers have a variety of choices ranging from simple locking devices to electrically or pneumatically powered units. There are several types within the electrically released brake family. Some units are designed for occasional load holding usage. Others are developed for relatively high cycle rates and
Whirlpool Corp. announced it has implemented the use of Honeywell’s Solstice Liquid Blowing Agent (LBA), into its environmentally responsible and energy efficient insulation used in U.S. made-refrigerators and freezers.
