Bolt system resists effects of vibration for safer joint design

It is vital that joints holding sub-assemblies together remain secure. Bolts need to be easily removable during maintenance, but resist loosening effects of vibrations and dynamic loads. Csaba Madru reports

Use of adhesive tape in car infotainment is on the increase

Tape increasingly used in car infotainment systems

Tighter control of joining processes boosts non-threaded techniques

Product designers often rule out riveting and similar non-threaded fastening techniques, viewing them as suitable only for applications where there is no need for tight process control. However, as Paul Stevens reports, modern monitoring and servo control capabilities are creating new opportunities for these economical joining methods

Mig brazing shows its advantages

Brazing often used to be viewed as a poor alternative to welding. Here, Paul Stevens reports on how Mig brazing is growing in popularity for automotive repairs and other applications

Latch combines security and access convenience

New from Southco, the R4-EM electronic rotary latch can be used with a variety of security devices including RF key fobs, biometric devices and remote controls

Focus on fasteners and security

How well a design functions is often a direct result of, among other things, how well the fasteners perform. A design will not be better than its weakest link. Harlen Seow reports
