Engineering Drawings (Fluid Schematics)

Fluid power includes either gas (such as air) or hydraulic (such as water or oil) motive media. Fluid power systems are divided into five basic components: • Pumps • Reservoirs • Actuators • Valves • Lines Pumps Hydraulic pumps are shown by solid arrow heads. Pneumatic compressors are represented by hollow arrow heads. Reservoirs Reservoirs […]

Engineering Drawings (Quick overview)

Engineering drawing defines requirements for product geometry and manufacturing information. Orthographic Projection – Multi view drawings showing how the object looks from front, right, left, top, bottom and back positioned according to First Angle & Third Angle projection. 1st Angle: Object –> Image  (ISO standard – European) 3rd Angle: Image –> Object  (ANSI – USA) […]

Non-Destructive Testing

Testing that doesn’t destroy the test object or specimen. Widely used on aircraft, engine, frame, pipelines, concrete structures, pressure vessels, wire ropes, castings, forgings, welds and railways. Techniques used commonly for Non-Destructive Testing: 1. Visual Testing Visual checks to know about likely cracks and its orientation in welds and material, surface porosity, weld penetration and […]
