Adhesives are just one of many substances which, when applied between two surfaces, will bond or seal them securely. More commonly referred to as glue, adhesives fall into two categories: natural and artificial. Generally, most modern adhesives are artificial, but various natural glues have been around for hundreds of years.

As many of you are probably familiar, a pneumatic system is any system that relies on pressurized air or gas. In order to drive actions, air or gas typically travels through a series of pipes, hoses, and/or tubes similar to the flow of liquids through hydraulic systems. Connecting to one another and various components in the system, these network channels require airtight seals to maintain leak-free joints. As such, a pneumatic fitting works to establish a tight connection between the components of a pneumatic system. With applications in virtually all industries, pneumatic systems range in their specific channel types, so a vast array of pneumatic fittings are available for procurement depending on the characteristics of their applications. For your better knowledge, we will explore some popular types of pneumatic fittings.

Washers are metal or non-metallic machine components that are used alongside a nut, an axle bearing, or a joint to reduce friction, prevent leakage and loosening, and isolate and distribute pressure. There are varying types of washers that suit a myriad of applications. For example, lock washers are utilized to secure fasteners, while spring washers are considered load bearing devices that provide preload between two surfaces. As there are so many washer types, this blog will outline some of the most common ones and their uses.

Bearings are a standard element of countless applications where moving assemblies are present, serving to facilitate motion while deterring the friction that generates as surfaces slide across one another. If an application features components that traverse in a straight direction, then linear bearings may be the best choice for their ability to maintain precision and repeatability. Across the market, there are a number of linear bearings that may be chosen from, those of which differ in their design and load capacities. In this blog, we will discuss the common forms of rolling and plain linear bearings that are used in a variety of systems, ensuring that you have the knowledge to find the best solution for your needs.

Adhesives are an important part of many industrial endeavors that require steady support systems in unsteady environments. The most important aspect of a reliable adhesive is its ability to maintain a strong bond between two substances; however, different conditions offer different obstacles that threaten to break a bond. Therefore, when purchasing an adhesive product, it is important to look first at the conditions of your application. Adhesives offer various advantages and disadvantages based on their material characteristics such as chemical composition, physical form, classification, or load bearing capability. While some varieties form stronger bonds, others are more resistant to environmental extremes like high temperatures. This blog will explore different types of adhesives used in industrial operations and how to know which product you should purchase.

Pumps are common elements within countless vehicles, industrial machines, and buildings, serving to transport fluids from one area to another through the conversion of energy. Pumps come in a number of types to accommodate varying needs, and each will often differ in the way in which they direct fluids and convert power. The centrifugal pump is a common type found in numerous applications, and it is capable of transforming mechanical energy into hydraulic energy through the use of a centrifugal force. Flowing in a radial outward direction, fluids flowing through a centrifugal pump are given the energy necessary to travel upward between levels. To help you better understand the functionality of the centrifugal pump, we will discuss its design and applications in more detail.

Motors are electro-mechanical devices that convert energy into motion. The energy is usually electrical, hydraulic, or pneumatic while the motion is either rotational or linear. In particular, electrical motors include the AC and DC varieties, which can be further categorized into specific special purpose electrical motors such as gearmotors, stepper motors, servo motors, and linear motors.

With hundreds of moving and vibrating surfaces on an aircraft at any given time, unchecked friction could lead to a sudden spike in temperature and eventual mechanical failure. To prevent such an occurrence, all moveable parts of an aircraft must be properly lubricated before use. In this blog, we will discuss the type of lubricant used on aircraft to reduce friction and keep them working like a "well-oiled machine."
