3V Fasteners Company Inc.'s externally threaded NAS and MS parts are manufactured from
traditional titanium alloy TI-6AL-4V and weigh 40 percent less than comparable
non-titanium hardware. They are useful for applications onboard commercial and
military aircraft from actuators to seat track assemblies, among many others.
3V titanium fasteners have a high strength-to-weight ratio,
high-temperature properties and stability, low density and corrosion
resistance. Parts can be manufactured to achieve 160 KSI tensile strength,
95KSI shear strength and demonstrate fatigue performance. The fasteners can be
provided in various head types (12 point, hex, flush, flat fillister, and pan)
and drives in thread sizes -04 to -8 and diameters .093 to .500. All can be
offered either uncoated or with aluminum or cadmium plate.
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.
