ViseNut is a rapid attaching/detaching nut that saves
tremendous time and effort in virtually every bolting operation, particularly
where threaded members are long, bent, rusted or damaged. Unlike other technologies the Visenut
design is not prone to debris interfering with its mechanism. Visenut truly
Zips on and Off in real field applications.The
patented ViseNut combines two simple machines, the screw and the wedge, into a
thread capturing vise grip. ViseNut starts at the end because it engages only
to load at the flange face, gliding over all prior threads. For use with
offshore, pipeline and plant fabricators; sub sea construction and maintenance;
nuclear power maintenance safety; and wind power. ViseNuts are available in all
standard diameter and thread sizes. The ATF size of the Visenut is one size
larger than the standard nut to accommodate its special engineered features.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
