Compression pawl pulls door and frame together; an adjustment shim accommodates doors and covers various thicknesses.
Designed especially for overlay doors or covers, this eccentric compression pawl mounts outside the sealed area. An oblong installation opening in the door makes it possible to shift the latch within this area, compensating for tolerances and—with narrow doors—correcting the angular position of the latch as it enters the frame's engagement hole.
Rotating the handle positions a rounded eccentric cam behind the opening. Swinging the actuator handle closed pulls the cam against the frame. The compression pawl is normally delivered in die-cast zinc with a black finish.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
