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.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
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.
