When it comes to drones, UAVs, and eVTOL aircraft, the importance of an optimized motor-propeller configuration cannot be overstated. Not only will this ensure your aircraft can fly, it will allow your aircraft to perform at optimal capability. Though regular testing of your motors and propellers throughout the design process may be tiresome and seem unnecessary, it can save valuable time and resources in the long run. Data from manufacturer parts manuals can give you an idea which motors and propellers will work in your design, but before testing it out, it’s not possible to know for certain just how well your drone will work. While there are many benefits to testing your drone motor and propeller, this blog will cover five of the most significant.

A hoist is a mechanism used to lift or lower loads via a chain. They often feature two wheels around which a chain is wound. As the chain is pulled, it winds around the wheels in one direction, either lifting or lowering the load to which it is attached. Since the early 1900s, electric and manual hoists have been manufactured in bulk. Hoists are being used in a broad range of industries all over the world where they provide countless benefits. Their chief benefit is that they make the typically complicated job of lifting heavy materials simple and easy. Because of this, many operators are using electric hoists for lifting heavy weights while still relying on manual lifting for lower weights. However, this is not necessarily the best idea. This blog will discuss why operators should be using electric chain hoists for all lifting, light or heavy.

Circuit breakers are automatically operated electrical switches designed to protect against damage caused by electrical overload or short circuit. Its basic function is to interrupt current flow after a fault is detected. There are three types of circuit breakers: standard, ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI), and arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCI). Each type handles different amp capacities and operates in different locations depending on the necessity of defense.

While many people believe that the electrical components of an aircraft or automobile are controlled by the housed battery, this is actually not the case. The electrical system of a vehicle is controlled by the alternator which is one of the main components of the vehicle charging system. An alternator is a type of generator that creates electric power through the conversion of mechanical energy into electric energy. In this blog, we will discuss how an alternator works, as well as their benefit to vehicles that utilize electrical equipment.

When you need to lift heavy objects like the engine of a Boeing 747, you’re not doing it with a team of guys, yelling at them to “put their back into it”. You’re doing it with a crane and sling. Choosing the right kind of sling requires understanding of the application. Depending on the details, you’ll have to choose between wire rope, chain, and synthetic slings.

Precision and work efficiency is something that many companies invest into to be able to produce at their highest potential. When it comes to maintance on aircraft it requires extreme precision and tedious work on solely one aircraft. Completing normal checkups has been under speculation and has been deemed “old fashion” with the incorporation of a lot of newer aircrafts. The term that mro-network.com has used for older types of review is “A, B, C, D checks.” Checks such as these need to be more efficient when it comes to fleets containing various models.

DuPont's chairwoman and chief executive Ellen Kullman has stepped down. Agriculture is DuPont's largest business, accounting for about a third of its $35 billion in sales last year. Kullman narrowly defeated Peltz's efforts to win board seats at DuPont in May, but the New York investor has retained his stake in the company and warned he could fight for further changes if things don't improve. DuPont, which has been in an ongoing battle with activist investor Nelson Peltz, said this week that its chief executive Ellen Kullman will retire Oct. 16 after nearly three decades with the Delaware-based company. DuPont’s series of massive earnings misses led to the “mutual decision” for Ms. Kullman to “retire” at age 59.
