Do you believe in ghosts? If you are a manufacturing engineer, or find yourself involved anywhere within the production environment for microelectronics products, you should at least believe in the invisible reality of Electrostatic Discharge (ESD).
Torque is a “turning” or “twisting” force and differs from tension, which is created by a straight pull. However, we use torque to create a tension.
These general guidelines are to help identify potential pitfalls relating to the tightening of bolted joints.
Joint relaxation occurs to some extent in all fastened joints. There are techniques that can be used to help resolve any "joint relaxation" from incurring during fastening process.
To fully utilize the high performance of a quality power tool, it's important to know the demands made on the power tool by different screwed joints.
In the manufacturing and assembly world, tightening, controlling, or measuring torque fasteners is imperative for production efficiency. An inadequately torqued fastener can vibrate or work loose: conversely, if the tension is too high, the fastener...
The following 10 tips for achieving precision torque control will give OEMs vital information needed to streamline their production processes:
Torque measurement is utilized in three areas of assembly. Controlling torque is essential for companies to ensure their product's quality, safety and reliability isn't compromised.
Without proper ergonomics on the production floor, employees can be subject to musculoskeletal disorders when a mismatch arises between the physical capacity of workers and the physical demands of their occupation. Jobs that involve reaching,...
The correct tightening of COAX and SMA Connectors used in RF cabling applications is essential to ensure optimum performance. This is particularly important in high frequency applications using stainless steel or beryllium-copper bodies.
