EO-2 soft-seal bite-type fittings for metric tubing feature an EO-2 functional nut, which consists of the retaining ring and sealing ring pre-assembled in the nut. The sealing ring features a soft elastomeric seal which seals on the outside diameter of the tube and the 24-degree cone of the fitting body. The retaining ring bites into the O.D. of the tube to provide the holding power.
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
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.
