Preheating aircraft engines is extremely important. Giving a cold start to the engine without preheating causes much more wear and tear than 1000 hours of runtime will. Or worse, it could lead to engine failure after take-off. While the term preheating might sound like it is just about increasing an engine’s oil temperature, it is more than that. It involves heating the entire engine to bring all working components up to an optimal and safe temperature range.
When a flight ends, a commercial aircraft will need to rapidly be cleaned, inspected, and prepared for the next set of passengers in a process known as a turnaround. To ensure smooth flights with no delays, the aircraft turnaround process must be minimal while ensuring all regulations and procedures are met. In this blog, we will discuss the efficiency of aircraft turnaround operations and how such processes can be safely improved.
Welding is a fabrication method that is often used to join metals and thermoplastics together, relying on high heat to conjoin parts through fusion. Welding is practiced for the manufacturing of countless assemblies, even finding many uses in the realm of aviation for aircraft part construction. Despite this, there are certain areas of an aircraft in which welding cannot be used, necessitating a reliance on fasteners and other solutions for securing assemblies. In this blog, we will discuss the most common aircraft parts and sections that cannot be welded, allowing you to better be aware of the limitations of such practices in the aerospace industry.
Airplanes are some of the most meticulously designed vehicles in engineering. While it is easy to appreciate the apparent flight control surfaces like the wings, elevators, and rudder, hundreds of other equally important components in the plane's interior contribute to safe operation. In this blog, we will be discussing the design and function of an aircraft's various bulkheads.
In order for a local area network to relay data packets between devices, a component known as a network switch is often used. Unlike a router that may manage data across multiple devices and networks simultaneously, a network switch is specifically intended for directing data towards a single device. In this blog, we will discuss network switches, their common types, and uses, allowing you to better understand typical network configurations and assemblies.
While a number of networks now rely on Wi-Fi for devices to interface with the Internet, such technology is often unable to match the speed, reliability, and security of Ethernet cables. Ethernet is a set of networking technology standards, permitting communication between computer stations, printers, and other various electronic equipment. Serving as a component that helps establish wired networks, such cables allow the creation of a local area network that may be useful for many reasons.
