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.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
Neil Fromer is the executive director of the Resnick Institute, a program for energy and sustainability at the California Institute of Technology, working to develop new ideas and research technologies related to providing a sustainable future. He spoke to us about the severity of the current drought in California and how solar energy can help prevent such situations in the future.
From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
