"Flexured" shaft couplings #6313 and #6607 help overcome vibrational forces and twisting caused by the high torque of Indy car engines, in addition to the normal distortions that can occur in the manufacture of the engine manifolds. The couplings are single-piece units machined from a single piece of material. End attachments such as tangs, clamps, flanges, or threaded ends can be integrated into a single, multifunctional component.

In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
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.
