Patent number: 8256661
A method of forming a part that includes a first component and a second component and which two components are diffusion bonded together ~ Barnes Aerospace (customer GE).
Publication number: 20170268641
A ball relief feature for a ball screw allows multiple turn ball circuits with reduced ball bearing stack-up within the ball screw assembly ~ Dynatect.
Publication number: 20180087554
An improved pin assembly for forming at least one pin joint in an object. The pin assembly may be readily inserted into and removed from more than one object when forming a pin joint, without the need for any special tools or equipment.
Publication number: 20170268643
This invention relates to an end cap return for a ball screw. The end cap uses tangential force from the sidewalls of the ball passage to roll the ball bearings sideways out of the leadscrew raceway rather than the typical protruding finger that picks the balls up directly ~ Dyantect.
Record of Invention
This invention record relates to the development of a special tool that burnishes rotor brake plate surfaces. This process allows for low variance control of thickness variation and lateral runout ~ Delphi Chassis (customer General Motors).
