  • Key Tips to Convert CAD Data in Effortless Way for Better Accuracy

    The Engineering Design
    admin
    20 Jan 2015 | 11:13 pm
    Computer Aided Design (CAD) is the use of computer system that allows engineers, drafters, artists and architects in diagramming 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional curves and figures. CAD is the means by which we express the language of design. If you take part in a digital design and manufacturing process you must share or receive product data in digital form – usually a CAD file. Sharing CAD files mostly means converting CAD along with its contents from one format to another. The basic reasons that lie behind it are: • People sharing CAD files are using 2 divergent CAD systems • 2…

    3 Dec 2014 | 8:18 pm
    BIM in simple words is software enabling a task associated with the creation of engineering plans, designs, construction etc. In other words it is the digital representation of the same. The idea that it has created a revolution in the world of architecture and engineering is mostly because of the fact that traditionally building designs were mostly 2 dimensional drawings and nothing more than mere geometric presentations. BIM tool in collaboration with other tools like CAD (Computer Information Modelling) MEP services has brought much change in the modern day engineering and construction…

    29 Jan 2015 | 2:04 pm
    Much of our reams of data sit in large databases of unstructured text. Finding insights among emails, text documents, and websites is extremely difficult unless we can search, characterize, and classify their text data in a meaningful way. A new algorithm shows better accuracy and reproducibility than the leading algorithm for mining unstructured text.

    Cities that host bike-to-work events as their sole effort to increase commuter travel by bicycle may be missing a larger -- perhaps more valuable -- opportunity, according to a study. Local governments should use bike-to-work days to find out from participants why they're attending and -- more importantly -- what prevents them from biking more often, according to the study.

    From the C&EN archives, but I believe still relevant today: April 23, 1990, page 2 SIR: We wish to report two violent explosions experienced with a sample of “piranha solution” used routinely in many laboratories to clean badly soiled glass frits and other surfaces. At Berkeley an explosion occurred in a bottle of this mixture that had been stored for several days. In this case, the solution was prepared by carefully mixing approximately 150 mL concentrated sulfuric acid with 150 mL 30% hydrogen peroxide with cooling over 30 minutes.

From Derek Lowe, in memory of people who died in chemical incidents: So in memory of these four, here’s something that all of us who work in the lab can do today. Take a look around you. Remind yourself of where the fire extinguishers are (and there should be more than one kind). Think of how you’d get to the safety shower if you had to use it. And pick the door you’ll use if a situation get beyond that. It’s far easier to go over such details when things are quiet, and if you do that…

    This coming March 8 will mark one year since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared from radar en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing somewhere over the Indian Ocean.  The wreckage has never been found, although communications experts used some almost accidental satellite-transponder data to estimate the last known location of the plane.  At the time, I recall thinking that if I was an airline and owned a number of high-value mobile assets known as airliners, I would want some way of knowing where each one was every minute or so, anywhere in the world.   After all, the…

  • Incompetent Engineers: Marilynne Robinson and the Global Economy

    12 Jan 2015 | 3:56 am
    Marilynne Robinson is a historically-minded writer of fiction and essays.  In one essay entitled "Family" she decries the damage wrought by the fact that the "marketplace gods," as she calls them, are now in ultimate charge of the global economy.  The result, she says, is a return of Social Darwinism—the nineteenth-century idea that prosperity and success are rewards for the intelligent, the industrious, and the able, and poverty and failure are equally just rewards for the stupid, the lazy, and the incompetent.  The Social Darwinism of the 1800s led straight to eugenics,…

  • Red-Light Cameras: Proceed With Caution

    29 Dec 2014 | 4:27 am
    The Latin phrase "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" means "Who will guard the guards themselves?" It may have originated with the Roman poet Juvenal, who flourished around the first century A. D., but the problem it highlights is much older than that.  Those who are charged with enforcing a law always experience a temptation to abuse the power that enforcement confers.  The case in point here is the use—and abuse—of so-called red-light cameras that photograph alleged runners of red lights and produce traffic citations that are mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle in…

The goal it appears is to address the needs of the small- to mid-sized (SMB) business market, a demographic that’s been largely left out of the PLM market. These companies often didn’t have the IT resources to support a full-scale PLM deployment and prefer the SAAS business model that enables them flexible, subscription-based pricing.

  • New flange couplings more secure than standard press fits

    Lisa Eitel

    Ringfeder-brand RfN 5571-series flange couplings for heavy industry. The flange couplings (from Ringfeder Power Transmission) are simpler to install and have higher torque capacity than standard press fits. Equipped with Ringfeder shrink discs, the flange couplings in this new series eliminate the need for additional components such as keyways or shims. Installers don’t need to heat and cool the part to integrate them into machines, either … which reduces installation complexity. The flange couplings are slip fit. The installer simply torques the shrink-disc screws for frictional…

  • All about Disk Couplings

    Michael Jermann
    27 Jan 2015 | 6:30 am
    Coupling Tips A disk coupling is a type of flexible coupling suited for high performance motion control applications and can typically handle speeds of up to 10,000 rpm. The coupling transmits torque from a driving to a driven bolt tangentially on a common bolt circle. This torque is transmitted between the bolts through a series of thin, stainless steel discs assembled in a pack. The flexibility of these couplings comes from the deformation of the material between the bolts. Disk couplings come in two variations, a single disc and a double disc. Single disc couplings are composed of two…

For me the answer is obvious, but I can never forget that there was a time I didn’t know, so if just one person Googles the question and gets this response, I’ll consider it successful. A hydraulic motor converts hydraulic energy, in the form of pressure and flow,…

  • Locating Plumbing Fixtures on Exterior Walls

    kirk@evstudio.com
    28 Jan 2015 | 9:07 pm
    As a Colorado engineer, I see many cases of plumbing fixtures being located on exterior walls. This may not be a concern in areas with less adverse climates, but for Colorado and other northern states it can be a dangerous practice. The fixtures I have seen located on outside walls include urinals, water closets (toilets) and showers. When the cold arrives there is little protection for a pipe that resides in an outside wall. Typically this is the recipe for a burst pipe. When the pipe thaws, you now have water under pressure in your wall. The water moves quickly, saturating insulation,…
  • Who Does Truss Drawings?

    Sean O'Hara
    28 Jan 2015 | 9:05 am
    Most residential projects and wood framed commercial projects utilize roof trusses. A roof truss is generally cheaper and less time consuming than a roof framed with rafters. It has these advantages because it is created from smaller pieces of lumber and it is fabricated in a shop and then only has to be set up in the field. When we design a house we do a truss layout where we show where we anticipate each truss going and give information on what the shape of the top and bottom of the truss is, what the plate heights are and what the loading criteria is for the trusses. We also call out if…

  • Wearing the Manager’s Hat

    Craig the Rocket Scientist
    29 Jan 2015 | 11:19 am
    As engineers we often need to wear a lot of hats: Scientist Program Manager Wrench Turner But perhaps the hardest hat for an engineer, and most crucial, for an engineer to wear is that of a manager. For example: Bob has been doing his job for many years. Bob is good at his job and is respected by his coworkers, because what Bob and the engineers near him do is very specialized. So Bob has been made a working-level manager over his coworkers. Bob has a hard time with this. He and his team have to deal with three key problems: 1. Lack of Direction When Bob doesn’t take charge of a project the…

    Is it a coincidence that a number of new “Project Blue Book” documents were released within days of David Duchovny announcing he’s on board for a reprise of the X-Files? Fans and fanatics have been poring over the documents — and binge watching old episodes in the background I suspect. The hope? To uncover the “truth”: that there are aliens out there and/or among us. They are wasting their time. Well, at least the people poring over the Project Blue Book files. For those of you not familiar with the Project, it was an investigation lasting over a decade by…

    My daughter has a book she likes me to read called “Rosie Revere, Engineer”. The book is about a young girl who longs to be a great engineer, but doubts herself because of some perceived earlier failings. The moral of the story is that you only fail when you quit and that each “perfect failure” should be celebrated and learned from. It’s pretty important stuff that I’m amazed is distilled down so well. The pictures are fun too! It’s this book I reach back to when I heard about Space X’s recovery attempt. When the first stage attempted to autonomously land itself vertically, at…

    Fred Doran
    28 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    Leachate, the liquid created when water passes through solid waste, poses a challenge for landfill owners. Potentially harmful to the environment and to people, leachate can contain compounds such as arsenic or vinyl chloride. This wastewater creates the need for solutions that protect communities and fall within budgets set aside for waste disposal operations. Here are a number of factors that need to be considered when deciding how to efficiently manage leachate at a landfill. Prevention Better Than Cure Start by implementing strategies that prevent disposal of contaminants at landfills.

  • Key Tips to Convert CAD Data in Effortless Way for Better Accuracy

    admin
    20 Jan 2015 | 11:13 pm
    Computer Aided Design (CAD) is the use of computer system that allows engineers, drafters, artists and architects in diagramming 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional curves and figures. CAD is the means by which we express the language of design. If you take part in a digital design and manufacturing process you must share or receive product data in digital form – usually a CAD file. Sharing CAD files mostly means converting CAD along with its contents from one format to another. The basic reasons that lie behind it are: • People sharing CAD files are using 2 divergent CAD systems • 2…

    Roof trusses are actually the triangular structures that provide the complete support and stability to the roof and spread the weight of the roof away from the exterior walls of the building. Steel roof trusses are specifically made for commercial building design. Usually it takes the form of a triangle and because of that shape’s natural ability to spread pressure through its whole structure, making it acutely stable and rigid. In today’s modern age, trusses can be designed in Revit projects swiftly and error-freely. As an Autodesk Revit user, do you have enquiries about the process of…

      A lot of talk in the tech world lately has centered on an idea called “The Internet of Things”. What is “IoT”, as it is commonly abbreviated? Is it just the latest in a laundry list of tech buzzwords? Or is it something that is really going to change our lives? Let’s begin with a definition. I scoured the Internet for a good definition but never found one that really jived with my concept of IoT. There were many definitions but none exactly agreed with the next definition.

  • Seeing The Light: A Circuit For Interfacing With Ambient Light Sensors

    12 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    We built a smart mailbox, as related in an article, that had an ambient light sensor to detect when the mailbox door was opened. In that project we used a Vishay ambient light sensor (Mouser Part #782-TEPT4400) that acts very much like an NPN transistor, in fact the part is also referred to as a phototransistor. The difference being (when compared to a normal bipolar junction transistor) that instead of needing a base lead to setup the bias voltage, photons provide energy at the base-collector junction to turn the transistor on, thus allowing current flow from collector-to-emitter. In that…
  • Don’t Leave Your Pins Floating

    When you are just starting off in electronics, there are many design pitfalls that can lead to hours of frustrating troubleshooting. I highlighted the importance of troubleshooting in this earlier blog post regarding my work on the automated energy harvester. Many times these faults are fixed with a very simple tweak to the circuit design or component selection. One of the most basic of the faults is the infamous “floating pin” or “floating input” that can affect the I/O pins of digital integrated circuits. To best explain a floating input and how it can negatively…

    “Begin with the End in Mind.” This well-known Steve Covey habit is especially true during product development. I recently had the opportunity to speak about the early stages of product design at the Design for Manufacturing (DFM) Summit in Brooklyn, NY, discussing that without a clear understanding of product requirements from the start (as viewed from ALL stakeholder’s perspectives) most products are doomed to fail. And one of the biggest failure points happens when a large stakeholder, the manufacturer, is unable to manufacture efficiently. Let’s take a closer look at Design for…

Whether bearing the weight of the great iron horse trains that crisscrossed North America, or used more modestly to move cargo carts throughout vast manufacturing plants, track-guided transport is considered to be the lifeblood of many production and logistics operations. Ensuring that these loads make it to their eventual destination is often a “groovy” experience – specifically, the grooved heavy-duty wheels which contour to the track. There are three basic types of grooved industrial caster wheels which are commonly…
  • Keep Your Industrial Casters Rolling: Four Pitfalls To Avoid

    Caster science has come up with a solution for almost every possible wheel-bound application. No matter the weight, terrain or cart, the right heavy-duty caster will almost invariably be a long-lasting and easy-to-maintain component of your manufacturing operation. However, no object is indestructible – and heavy-duty casters are no different. When used in a manner that is not recommended by the industrial caster manufacturer, caster failures can and will happen. That’s why it’s important to make sure you are aware of the environment your heavy-duty caster will be subject to, and that…
  • Picking Caster Wheels for the Heaviest Loads – Nine Important Questions to Ask

    16 Dec 2014 | 10:47 am
    For decades, forklifts have been the heroes of the manufacturing plant. It’s hard to think of any production facility that hasn’t deployed these powered machines in one aspect of its manufacturing process. But increasingly, safety, liability and cost issues have spurred a movement to “forklift-free” production. In fact, an article in American Machinist documented the trend, and attempted to explain the pros and cons of such a shift. But one consideration that shouldn’t be overlooked is the selection of heavy-duty caster wheels on the pushcarts and manual machinery that will be…
  • Tiny Movements, Big Headaches: How TWERGO® Helps Move Industrial Carts, Inch By Inch

    In a previous blog, we talked about simple changes you could make to a heavy assembly cart that would improve its maneuverability, and also increase its contributions to a more efficient manufacturing operation. But often, it’s the most minute of movements that have the greatest impact when trying to position your industrial cart into the precise location it is needed. Though many industrial carts get a “power-assist” by Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGV’s) or Human Operated Tuggers across a distance, it is these short and precise movements that often have to be performed manually.
  • Assembly Carts Bear the Brunt of Manufacturing’s Heaviest Trials – Are Your Industrial Casters Up to the Challenge?

    Assembly carts are manufacturing’s utility player – the lumbering linchpin of the factory, whether delivering materials used in the manufacturing process, or removing goods that are ready for sale. Such carts are a critical link in the manufacturing chain – often moving loads that tip the scales at thousands of pounds or more. With the cart itself adding hundreds of pounds to the equation, this results in a lot of weight that an individual has to handle at some point – singlehandedly having to push, pull, turn or maneuver the assembly carts and loads. This puts a tremendous amount of…

  • Equivalent Circuit of a Three Phase Induction Motor

    28 Jan 2015 | 8:51 pm
    In a three phase induction motor the stationary winding is connected to the three phase supply and rotor winding is short circuited. The energy from the stator winding is transferred magnetically to the short circuited rotor winding. Thus the induction motor might be deliberated to be a transformer with secondary winding (rotor short circuited winding). The stator windings refer to the primary of transformer and the rotor windings refer to the secondary of transformer. In view of the comparison of flux and conditions of voltage in a transformer, each can assume that the induction motor…
  • Principle Operation of Three Phase Induction Motor

    25 Jan 2015 | 2:16 am
    The figure shows the portion of a three phase Induction motor and is principle explained below:  The three phase stator winding gets energized when a three phase supply is given to the stator winding, a rotating magnetic field is produced which revolves round the stator its synchronous speed (Ns= 120f/p).   Then the rotating magnetic field moves through the air gap and cuts the conductor of rotor, till now which is stationary. Because of the virtual speed amongst the stationary rotor and the rotating flux, EMF’s are induced in the conductors of rotor. Since the rotor…
  • Construction of Three Phase Induction Motor

    21 Jan 2015 | 8:43 pm
    Three phase Induction motor consist of 2 important parts namely Stator and rotor. Always the stator and rotor is separated with a small air gap ranging from 0.4-4 mm, which is depends on the size and capacity of the motor. Stator: It contains a steel frame that surrounds a hollow cylindrical shaped core made of skinny laminations of silicon steel to cut back hysteresis loss and eddy current loss A number of equally spaced slots are providing on the inner bound of the laminations as shown in the fig above. The insulation connected to arrange a balanced three phase star connected circuit or…
  • Introduction of Three Phase Induction Motor

    19 Jan 2015 | 3:03 am
      The three phase induction motors are commonly used electric motors in the industry. These motor basically runs from no load to full load at constant speed. Though, the speed of the motor is dependent on the frequency. Normally we prefer DC motors whenever the required speed variation is large. On the other hand the three phase induction motors are simple, rugged, and low cost; maintenance is easy and can be manufactured with the suitable characteristics for the requirement of industries. Similar to any electric motor, three phase induction motors also have a rotor and stator. The…
  • Sumpner Test or Back to Back Test on Transformer

    17 Jan 2015 | 6:56 am
    This test is conducted instantaneously on two similar transformers and so the transformers temperature rise, efficiency and voltage regulations. The advantage of conducting this test is very economical of power, even when the transformers are tested at full load conditions. The total losses of both the transformers are equal to the power required to conduct this test. It might be noted to carry out this test that the two transformer needs to be identical.   Circuit: The figure above shows that the connection diagram of back to back test on two similar transformers named T1 and T2.

    A 100-ohm resistor, 5mH inductor, and a 10uF capacitor are connected in series. Calculate the equivalent reactance. To calculate the equivalent reactance of the circuit in the figure below, we need to use the formulas written HERE.Solving for the inductive reactance,X_L = 2{\pi}f{L_1}X_L = 2{\pi}(1kHz)(5mH)X_L = 31.42\OmegaSolving for the capacitive reactance, X_C = \frac{1}{2{\pi}f{C_1}}X_C = \frac{1}{2{\pi}(1kHz)(10{\mu}F)}X_C = 15.92\OmegaNote: As much as possible, don't round off the values except the final answer in order to have minimal errors. This is applicable not just with this…

    Here is a program that adds two (2) floats. The program only accepts numbers. It keeps asking for input until a number is entered. The function add(float addend1, float addend2) returns the result in float.code:When operating on floats, the computer, sometimes, doesn't give the right answer. The computer isn't actually wrong. Read the explanation HERE. We can format the answer we print as a workaround for this (see code lines 36 and 37).You may use this or any part of this program for noncommercial use, i.e. your assignments, projects, teaching programs.If you have questions/suggestions,…
  • Logic Circuits: 4-bit K-Map (Karnaugh Map) problem #1

    19 Jan 2015 | 6:39 am
    Simplify the following function using K-map: F(w,x,y,z) = Σ(8,10,12,13,14)Solution:This is a summation of minterms, therefore, 8, 10, 12, 13, and 14 are all 1's.We can group the four 1's (the one's in Green) since there is only 1 bit difference from bits 00 to 10 (see figure). Please, review on Gray Code to understand better. And, we can group the two 1's (1's in Red). When dealing with minterms, an x is equal to 1 and an x' is equal to 0. Zero's will be listed as x' and one's as x.Listing them, we get:F = (w + w + w + w) (x + x + x' + x') (y' + y' + y + y) (z' + z' + z'…
  • Logic Circuits: 3-bit K-Map (Karnaugh Map) problem #2

    Simplify the following function using K-map: F(A,B,C) = Σ(0,2,3,7)Solution:This is a summation of minterms, therefore, 0, 2, 3, and 7 are all 1's. We can't group the 4 of them together since they don't form a square in the K-map (see figure). We can group them by pair. Notice the ones grouped in red. They can be grouped together since the difference between bits 00 and 10 is only 1 bit, and we can only group together bits that are 1 bit apart (review Gray Code, K-map is in Gray Code). When dealing with minterms, an x is equal to 1 and an x' is equal to 0. Zero's will be listed as x' and…
