Corp. has reformulated and reintroduced Loctite 243 Threadlocker to
withstand temperatures up to 360F, cure consistently without primers and
tolerate contamination from thread lubrication, anti-corrosion and protection
fluids. Designed for locking and sealing fasteners that may need to be
disassembled during their service life, this anaerobic threadlocker now
provides enhanced performance on both active and passive metal surfaces
including steel, stainless steel and plated materials.
Medium viscosity Loctite 243 prevents loosening and
leakage from shock and vibration on fasteners from 1/4 to Â¾ inch in diameter. This thixotropic liquid threadlocker will not migrate
once applied to a fastener's surface. Loctite 243 fixtures in 5 minutes and
achieves full cure in 24 hours when confined in the absence of air between
close fitting metal surfaces.
Fasteners assembled using removable-strength Loctite 243
can be disassembled using standard hand tools. This threadlocker is registered
to NSF Category P1, and can be used in and around food processing applications.
Loctite 243 is available in 0.5 ml capsules, 10 ml tubes and 50 ml, 250 ml or 1
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
