Quite an interesting post, and on a topic that I have not studied much. It certainly required a bit of insight to understand what the changes had to be, and it is interesting that the techs assumed that the part needd to be redesigned. That is the sort of attitude that comes with not understanding just what is happening with a process. Of course, if they understood as much as the engineer then they would be designing the parts instead of testing them.
It sounds like the rotor being tested must have been fairly small for setscrews to be equal to any signifigant portion of the mass of the part.
With erupting concern over police brutality, law enforcement agencies are turning to body-worn cameras to collect evidence and protect police and suspects. But how do they work? And are they even really effective?
A half century ago, cars were still built by people, not robots. Even on some of the country’s longest assembly lines, human workers installed windows, doors, hoods, engines, windshields, and batteries, with no robotic aid.
DuPont's Hytrel elastomer long used in automotive applications has been used to improve the way marine mooring lines are connected to things like fish farms, oil & gas installations, buoys, and wave energy devices. The new bellow design of the Dynamic Tethers wave protection system acts like a shock absorber, reducing peak loads as much as 70%.
