Stylish, compact, and lightweight, the Beetle slam-to-close latch features a durable, brightly polished stainless steel handle that rests flush inside a white, black, or stainless steel covered plastic housing. The latch is made for doors from 3/8 to 7/8 in.
In March 2001, opportunity struck for the United Kingdom-based Strida Bicycles when it received an order for several thousand bicycles, an increase in volume of roughly 200 percent from the prior year.
Ten new models of a line of pressure-reducing regulators provide accurate, consistent delivery pressures to reduce the likelihood of process variability and protect sensitive equipment.
Buying Productivity An increasing number of OEMs is realizing the benefits of purchasing subassemblies from suppliers for mechanical and power transmission applications. "Increase productivity" has been the mantra for manufacturers since the Industrial Revolution.
A new clutch model features an increased torque rating of 75 lb-in. The long-life clutches have an improved bearing system that is specifically designed to increase reliability in machinery with high-hour or high-input revolution requirements.
The new Autotension Belt contains a reinforcing cord that is self-tensioning. There is no need for idlers or adjustments. Cost savings are made possible by weight and hardware reduction. Also, there is no need to provide adjusting slots to tension the belt, speeding up the assembly process.
Manufacturers' need to speed production, accommodate smaller assemblies, and join diverse materials has led to advances in mechanical fasteners and their chemical counterparts.
Large vehicles have always had special pump requirements for their transmissions. That's why Viking Pump, a manufacturer of gear pump technology for lubrication and process applications, has developed new custom-engineered pump that is designed specifically for large vehicle.
The complexities of oil flow control can often lead to high part counts and high costs. Marine and industrial engines can be particularly pricey.
The Model A37 is a 12-bit single-turn unit with opto-electronic technology. The encoder can be used in a wide variety of position-sensing applications for the measuring of angles and distances in relatively small envelopes.
Gasketmaker HH190 is designed to replace traditional pre-cut gaskets for flange assemblies. Permabond HH190 forms an instant, pressure-resistant, leak-free seal, and allows for adjustment up to 60 minutes after assembly.
The Mass Monitor moment-insensitive load cell uses a variable capacitance sensor and custom electronics. The unit offers high resolution and weighing accuracy that is said to be 10 times greater than conventional strain-gauge technology.
The modular design of these versatile, heavy-duty switches permits a multitude of specialized configurations. Available in a large selection of electrical ratings, all models comply with pertinent military specifications for high-shock, high-vibration environments.
The 929 Series is capable of accurately following extremely fast (dc and/or ac) current waveforms. The units consumes 80 to 270 mW during operation, and provide an ultra-fast response to complex current waveforms in the range of dc to 350 KHz.
The new RS80 position sensor is protected and sealed against weather and rough usage. Capable of withstanding shock, vibration, and common chemicals, the RS80 can be used in throttle position, steering feedback, and suspension height adjustment applications.
