ELECTRONICS: Rotor Clip Co. Inc. manufactures a varied range of wave springs for applications requiring quick connectorsFlatwire Wave Springs and Retaining Rings are used in a variety of quick connectors/circular plug-in connectors with threaded and bayonet locking for military, aerospace and industrial applications.
The designer has the choice of single (overlapping ends save axial space and prevent radial jamming), nested (provides a higher load than a single turn wave spring and uses the same radial space as a single turn design) and multi-turn (does not cling to the bore; greater deflection while taking up half the space of coiled springs) wave springs to meet the unique demands of virtually any connector application.
Rotor Clip wave springs are currently manufactured from carbon steel and 17-7 stainless.
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
