Corrosion control is a critical aspect of maintaining the integrity and longevity of both ground support equipment (GSE) and aircraft. Neglecting corrosion prevention measures can lead to costly repairs, compromised safety, and operational disruptions, necessitating basic knowledge on common practices. In this guide, we will explore effective strategies to uphold corrosion control for your GSE and aircraft, ensuring optimal performance and safety.


When it comes to fastening components securely in place, there are countless tools and devices at our disposal. One such tool that often goes under the radar while playing a pivotal role in many industries is the humble speed nut. In this blog, we will delve into the world of speed nuts, shedding light on what they are, how they work, and why they are essential in various applications.


Bolt shear is a common source of failure prevalent in bolted joints that can significantly impact the structural integrity of various applications. It occurs when the bolt “shears” or breaks due to an excessive load or stress. Understanding the causes of bolt shear is essential for ensuring the reliability and safety of bolted connections. With this in mind, we will explore the factors that contribute to bolt shear and its implications on numerous assembled structures.


In the modern era, technology has provided us great control over the spaces we live in, ensuring increased comfort, safety, and much more. With the introduction and installation of HVAC technologies, countless buildings can now have control over room temperatures and air flow for the benefit of those residing within them. In order for HVAC systems to effectively operate, a system of air ducts are commonly routed throughout a building so that circulation can be upheld. While ductwork is very effective, there can be instances in which cold and hot spots form or other issues arise, leading to things like uneven room temperatures, dirty ductwork, high electricity bills, and more. To avoid such concerns, it is important that one has a basic understanding of air ducts, their common types, and why they may face various problems.


A ball spline is a device which enables linear motion on a single shaft. They are well-suited for applications that require high speed, vibration, and shock loading. Though ball splines look and act somewhat similarly to a traditional rolling bearing guide, they are designed with grooves that keep the recirculating balls along a restricted track. By moving in this track, the round nut of the device does not ride freely on the shaft; instead, the spline nut is constrained along a specific path. In a typical ball spline, the nut can only move linearly, but a rotary ball spline allows rotational movement on the shaft in addition to linear movement.


Pins are a type of fastener, capable of being inserted into a preformed hole to secure components in an assembly. While being simplistic in nature, pins may come in a number of designs and types that accommodate varying needs. The clevis pin is a common option that one may find across the market, and they are a fastener featuring a cylindrical shape and a formed head on one side. Meanwhile, the tail-end of the component will have one or more cross-holes situated on the shank, allowing it to serve as part of a clevis fastener set or work independently.
