Electronics have established themselves as a somewhat permanent part of our daily lives now, allowing us to light up the night, communicate across the globe with ease, and so much more. As electronics have evolved since the initial inception of harnessing current, many devices have been transformed with newer and more powerful technology. One of the biggest leaps in electronic devices was with the introduction of solid-state materials, the first example being the solid-state transistors introduced to the commercial market in the 1960s. Solid-state materials have many benefits for electrical devices, often increasing performance and reliability while facing less wear and tear as compared to alternatives.

A Schrader valve, or American valve, is a type of pneumatic tire valve used on most motor vehicles and aircraft in the world today. In fact, in the world of aviation, one of the components that has not undergone many changes is this particular valve. Whether your tires are tubeless or have a tube, there is a Schrader valve on every wheel, a design patented by August and George Schrader in 1898.

A majority of aircraft are equipped with trim devices, which are adjustable flight control surfaces that enable pilots to change the aerodynamic forces that aircraft are exposed to. With the application of trim devices, pilots do not need to constantly apply pressure to control systems. As airplanes vary in design, there are many different types of trim devices on the market, some of which we will outline in this blog.

Today, nearly 90% of electricity consumed in the United States is generated using gas turbines. Seeing how a vast majority of the population depends on such turbines to meet its electricity requirements, designers undertake extensive research to come up with the most efficient turbine designs. Moreover, aircraft also utilize different variations of gas turbines, such as turbofans, turbojets, turboshafts, and turboprops. Therefore, designing turbines with less weight and more efficient power generation is of utmost importance to various industries. To better understand the necessity and function behind systems like gas turbines, this blog will discuss modern three-stage gas turbines and what makes them valuable.

Commonly used in commercial lifting, a clevis hook is a hook with a U-shaped point of attachment featuring holes that enable you to thread a prong through it, and such components allow the assembly of rigging equipment. Additionally, they can also come with or without a snap lock and a clevis, as well as a pin or bolt at the base. Clevis’ are used for fastening the hook to a chain or bracket. Clevis pins can be found at the top of a clevis hook and they are a bolt-like hardware tool that runs across the top of the clevis hook. Knowing that there are various types of hooks available in the market, one might wonder what benefits clevis hooks offer. In this blog, we talk about the advantages of picking clevis hooks over others and where they are used.

Coaxial cables are one of the most common cable types, supporting the transfer of data and signals for cable television, radar, radio frequency (RF), instrumentation, communication, and military applications alike. While signals travel from one system to another through lengths of wire or cables, all connections between conducting components are made through the use of coaxial cable parts. Capable of providing for reliable connections and shielding maintenance, it can be highly beneficial to have a general understanding of coaxial cable connectors. In this blog, we will discuss the role of such components in brief detail, as well as the most common types that are available on the market.

Oil pressure gauges are common to countless vehicles like automobiles and aircraft, serving to convey the amount of engine oil that is present within engine systems. Oil gauges conduct readings in terms of pressure, and they are extremely important in the early prevention of engine malfunctions and breakdowns as a result of poor oil quantities or conditions. As there are various types of oil gauges present in differing vehicles, it is important that pilots, drivers, and operators understand how to correctly read their measurements.

When searching for bearings, bushings, brackets, blocks, and other similar components, there are many factors that one must consider. While materials, performance, and capabilities are all crucial for optimal operations to be carried out, even the highest quality part will still be a poor choice if its dimensional qualities do not match the requirements of an assembly. In this blog, we will discuss geometrical factors such as the radius of components, ensuring that you best understand part requirements prior to initiating the procurement process.
