Upgrading a large luxury coach with inexpensive, small components — what sounds like a paradox was realized by a Dutch construction designer by equipping the auxiliary air compressors of his motor home with vibration absorbers from ACE as extras, thus ensuring a quieter environment inside when parked.
Quick clamps for machining fixtures. One-Touch Clamps and Supports offer easy and efficient clamping operations and support of workpieces without the need for tools during the application. The unique tool-less feature on these clamping devices helps reduce time wasted on part setup and changeover while increasing overall productivity. Quick and easy clamping at the turn of a handle!
Solar Powered System Extracts Drinking Water From Dry Air
The first generation of this system from a team at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), was developed three years ago as a proof of concept in order to validate that such a system could work. The device is aimed at extracting clean, drinkable water from the atmosphere, even in “dry” regions, using solar or any other form of heat energy. This is made possible by using an AWH (Atmospheric Water Harvesting) approach, which according to the researchers at MIT has not been explored yet.
Tap Drill Chart – The Ultimate inch and metric table (mm and inches)
Taps are cutting tools used by machinists to cut or form screw threads. The first recorded use of taps in metalworking is placed sometime in the 18th century, while the British engineer and industrialist Joseph Clement popularised the tool in the mid-19th century. We then saw standards emerge in threading with the tap drill chart. As a consequence the development of taps corresponded to this standardisation ensuring enhanced compatibility.
Naming just 10 of the countless engineers that have had enormous impacts on the world as we know it can be quite difficult. Over the last 100-200 years especially, there have been major advances in technology in all engineering disciplines. From the car you drive to work, to the light bulbs and electricity in your house, even to the computer that this is being typed onto, these have all been invented by the geniuses that have come before us.
