Manufacturing Technology

Ever wondered how certain objects are made? Mechanical Engineering is responsible for designing and producing manufacturing equipment. Learn how Manufacturing Technology makes even the most common products and tools available to you. They use a vast range of materials to get the job done. From metal and glass to plast and nano-materials, learn the basics of these elements. Read articles on the safety and use of materials to build the machines and mechanisms that power our every day world.

How Bolt Locking Devices Work

The article discusses important forms of bolt locking devices employed in order to avoid nuts from loosening or gradually unlocking due to the various types of mechanical shocks or vibrations generally involved with all threaded parts fixed over machines.

How to Measure Friction in a Machine

The parameter which makes the existence of an ideal machine virtually impossible is friction, which is in fact an opposing resistance developed due to the interactions between the moving elements of the machine. Here we discuss formulas to measure and eliminate machine friction.

The Chemical Formula for Acetate

This article provides an engineering perspective on acetate, an important material in industry. In addition to learning the chemical formula of acetate, readers will find out about some of the most common varieties of acetate, as well as their uses in industry.

Acid-Base Properties of Organic Compounds

Acid base properties of organic compounds are the same as the properties of inorganic acids and bases. Organic acids and bases are all weak acids and bases, however, while there are strong and weak inorganic acids and bases. Organic acids and bases, thus don’t exhibit the properties strongly.

ISO Definition of Traceability

ISO is a system of International Standards that was founded in 1947 by an alliance of over 100 countries, with each country having a representative standards body. It can be defined as the capability to trace a product from its origin through processing, delivery and receipt, to its final location.
