COMMON to a diverse range of manufacturing industries, is the drive to miniaturise and produce higher precision products. Electric switches and relays, for example, operate faster when they are smaller. In turn this pushes forward the need for greater understanding of materials and processes at...
SINCE 1985, the use of abrasiveentrained water jets to cut a wide variety of metallic and nonmetallic materials has rapidly expanded, creating a whole new industry and an everexpanding series of new applications. In fact, for certain materials, abrasive water jet cutting offers distinct...
WESTLAND Aerospace, based in Cowes on the Isle of Wight, has just begun installation of CPLAN computerised process planning software from CADCentre Ltd. in Cambridge. More than 250 terminals are eventually to have access to the CPLAN system.
TODAY's highgrade foams provide airport firefighting crews with the capability to rapidly knockdown and extinguish fires as a result of aircraft crashes or engine failure. Furthermore, the ability of foams to bring fires quickly under control ensures that the damage done to the local environment...
BOEING are using IRCON ULTIMAX portable infrared thermometers to check heated pitot tubes mounted eight metres high on 747 aircraft fuselages by measuring the surface temperatures, remotely, from the ground.
MENTION systems integration, and one helicopter comes immediately to mind the AH64D Longbow.
CONSIDERABLE interest is being shown in the progress of the WestlandAgusta EH101 with the nine preproduction aircraft exploring every aspect of the helicopter's development and potential applications. The Royal Navy order in 1991 for 44 of the antisubmarine warfare ASW version has been followed...
WITH a company's finished products selling for several million pounds apiece, you might think there wouldn't be much pressure on reducing component costs and improving manufacturing methods.
THE installation of a computer controlled manufacturing cell, based on a Fanuc DrillMate machining centre, has doubled production capacity for key components at Mollart Universal Joints Ltd., Wokingham.
Aerospace engineers investigating new highperformance heatresistant alloys for further gas turbine engines are optimistic about titanium aluminides. If the alloys can be made stronger, titanium aluminides are prime candidates to replace conventional titanium and lower temperature nickelbase...
