Engine oil is fairly essential for the proper functionality of engine assemblies, serving to lubricate moving parts while also reducing heat through thermal transfer. To ensure that engines remain safe and efficient, one will need to conduct regular engine oil servicing to replenish levels as quantities get low. While one may think that consistent servicing to keep engine oil quantities topped off will make things easier, it can lead to over-servicing which is a condition where an excessive amount of oil is supplied. As this can result in a variety of issues, ranging from part stress to higher costs, it is important that one knows the risks of over-servicing and how to avoid it.

An aluminum electrolytic capacitor, commonly referred to as just an electrolytic capacitor, is a specialized component used in numerous network applications which operate with direct current (DC) power supplies. This includes implementation within systems used by industrial power supplies, various other electronic devices like DC converters to buff or smooth rectified current,  and standard power supplies. Although they have a tendency to exhibit low impedance values at lower frequencies, they find great use among power supplies, drives, inverters, certain converters, and more.

Circuit boards are a common part of many modern electrical systems and devices, serving as a thin, rigid board where multiple circuit elements can be embedded and connected with ease. Using a circuit board, one can better ensure proper electrical energy transfer between electrical components, as well as reduce the overall size of an assembly with compact construction. Countless electronics rely on some form of circuit board, their applications ranging from printers to modern smart devices. With the progressive electrification of aircraft, spacecraft, and other such vehicles, aerospace applications often rely on circuit boards now for the functionality of control towers, satellites, shuttles, and much more. As conditions are often intense high up in the atmosphere or within space, these printed circuit boards must be designed to take on various stressors while avoiding losses in performance or shortened lifespans.

With advancements in technology come increased expectations for the speed and accuracy of the information we receive. Specifically, equipment that is connected to the radio spectrum is often intended for high-speed data collection, as it is common in industries that rely on efficient communication. As such, Radio Frequency (RF) connectors are designed to complement the highly efficient nature of radio communication, whether this takes the form of radio, television, Wi-Fi, antennae, telecommunication, or high-data-rate wireless transceivers. Regardless of how the user is utilizing the radio waves they receive, we all want our information as quickly as possible, and RF connectors are designed with this in mind. For your better understanding of the different types of RF connectors available and their different applications, this blog will provide a brief overview of this vital part of radio communication.

Whether you operate a commercial aircraft that travels across the world or a simple trainer used for pilot training, all aircraft will need to be cleaned on a regular basis. While cleanliness surely upholds general appearances, it is also important to remove any corrosives, pollutants, grease, or other substances in or on your plane as many can lead to the degradation and discoloration of parts. In this blog, we will provide a brief guide on how to properly clean an aircraft, ensuring that you have the basics to kickstart your own care schedule!

Bearings play an integral role in extending the operational lifespan of machines across an array of industries while also reducing downtime and maintenance costs. They accomplish this action by limiting motion and reducing friction between two surfaces or adjacent components. With numerous variations in design, it is critical to choose a bearing with the capacity to handle the project in question. Moreover, the bearing material also plays a significant role in the assembly's utility. In this blog, we will discuss the several bearing materials that may be encountered in a commercial setting while also highlighting the best practices for how to choose one for a given application.

When it comes to constructing any vehicle, the implementation of brakes may be one of the first elements that comes to mind. However, in the case of airplanes, not every person understands how such braking systems work. Airplanes have disc brakes similar to those used in cars, but in aircraft, such components must be designed to accommodate tremendous loads to make takeoff and landing operations possible. Additionally, these brakes allow aircraft to stop within the length of a runway, and to achieve this, disc brakes are often used. Moreover, when landing, some planes also utilize thrust reversers, spoilers, and flaps to slow down their speed, only activating wheel brakes once the aircraft hits the ground. To better understand how different aircraft safely come to a halt, we will discuss the function of landing gear and air brakes.

One-way clutch bearings are a category of bearing types that feature reverse stop motion and a one-way rotation function (which is where they got the name “one-way bearing”). The one-way clutch bearing is designed so that when its movement opposes the intended one-way direction, an immediate locking or disengagement motion occurs, arresting the system in place. In general, one-way clutch bearings boast low frictional torque, saving energy by avoiding losses.

It is well known that aircraft are regularly subjected to stringent testing in order to screen for any defects in their structure or function. These inspections may vary depending on the particular aircraft, in addition to the number of flight hours since its last assessment. In this blog, we will discuss the several types of aircraft inspections, highlighting what goes into them and how often they should be carried out.
