AS9145 Requirements for Advanced Product Quality Planning and Production Part Approval

2021-05-11
Production and continual improvement of safe and reliable products is key in the aviation, space and defense industries. Customer and regulatory requirements must not only be met, but they are typically expected to exceeded requirements. Due to globalization, the supply chain of this industry has been expanded to countries which were not part of it in the past and has complicated the achievement of requirements compliance and customer satisfaction. The IAQG has established and deployed the AS9145 Standard, as a step to help achieve these objectives.

Rubber, Silicone (VMQ), Low Compression Set, Non-Oil-Resistant, 65 - 75

2020-09-30
WIP
AMS3307E
This specification covers a silicone (VMQ) rubber in the form of sheet, strip, and molded shapes. Primarily for parts required to operate or seal from 55° to +200°C ( 67° to +392°F), compounded especially for low compression set. Silicone rubber is resistant to deterioration by ozone, smog, and weathering and remains flexible over the temperature range noted. These products are not intended for use with petroleum base fluids or lubricants. Certain design applications may cause these products to be susceptible to cutting, tearing, and abrasion. While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use.

Unsettled Technology Domains in Industrial Smart Assembly Tools Supporting Industry 4.0

2020-09-29
EPR2020018
“Smart” refers to tools that are “specific, measurable, achievable, reasonable/realistic, and time bound.” Smart assembly tools are used in many industries, including automotive, aerospace, and space for measuring, inspecting, gauging, drilling, and installing all existing fastening systems. Inside the Industry 4.0 environment, these tools have a huge influence on Information and Communication Technology (ICT), assembly cost reduction, process control, and even the product and process quality. These four domains—and their undefined nature—are the focus of this SAE EDGE™ Research Report. The technical issues identified here need to be discussed, the goals clarifying the scope of the industry-wide need to be aligned, and the issues requiring standardization need prioritized. NOTE: SAE EDGE Research Reports are intended to identify and illuminate key issues in emerging, but still unsettled, technologies of interest to the mobility industry.

Innovative setting bracket design to improve the tractor Fit and Finish between the Bonnet and Custer panel (Scuttle) The paper presents an integrated approach for arriving a process to assemble scuttle regarding bonnet to achieve Gap and flushness aesthetic requirement. Variation is inevitable due to fitting of bonnet on Tractor front semi-chassis, scuttle fitting on tractor middle clutch housing and assembling many parts with different tolerances, hence the deviation (stack-up) obtained after their assembly varies from approximately -10.175 to 9.775 mm. This is quite large and gives a huge impact in aesthetic point of view. To overcome this issue, we introduced one Innovative intermediate bracket as the setting gauge which is assembled with reference to bonnet and scuttle is mounted on this setting bracket hence zero flushness and uniform achieved between bonnet and scuttle.

2020-28-0464
The present study is focused on the significance of solar desalination heat storage method. The Solar energy is a prime source of energy existing directly or indirectly from the nature. The primary drawback of solar energy, which is existing in hours only. Thermal storage devices can overcome this problem as they can store the energy in daylight that can be utilized in off sunshine hours. The purpose of this work is to evaluate the increase in productivity of the solar desalination by using phase change material and combination of PCM with TiO2 (Nano particles). The present work is focused on performance of solar water desalination using Phase Change Materials along with TiO2 Nanoparticles. The Titanium Oxide Nanoparticles were synthesized by Sol-Gel method. The Titanium oxide Nano particles were characterized by XRD, SEM, EDS, and FTIR etc. In this experiment paraffin 34-carbons is used as phase change materials and Titanium Oxide Nanoparticles used for energy storage materials.

2020-28-0330
The economic growth of the company depends on the quality and delivery time of the components. The pursuit of new techniques is mandatory to maintain quick delivery time without compromising quality. Ergonomics is one such technique that helps to improve workstation productivity by reorganizing the workspace, changing the sequence in operations, up-gradation of machine tools, reducing operator fatigue, etc. The ergonomic study was performed in a tractor steering gearbox manufacturing unit. In the present work, an ergonomic assessment of the workstation is done. Ergonomics assessment includes RULA assessment and Work-place assessment helped to find out the factors influencing the work station to be in the alert zone. During the observation of base milling operation, the operator needs to clamp and de-clamp the steering box manually by using mechanical tools. Due to which operator feel more fatigue in the wrist and lower-arm position which reduces productivity.

In this work, Flash butt welding process was completely studied and the parameters for improvement of productivity were established with the help of flash butt welding machine. This work tries to confirm that an exploratory type of research is mostly preferred and analysis has to be done to achieve the end output. Quality affirmation and cost of value are the two significant variables that influence the efficiency of flash butt welding. To accomplish excellent quality and less cost of value different components that impact the welded joint and procedure are considered and comprehended. As commitment towards this point, an examination was done in the flash butt welding system. One of the fundamental goal of this investigation was to build up the imperfection free parameters. This was done initially by studying the different defects that occur in flash butt welded joints.
