Researchers from the University of Manchester have designed and fabricated a carbide coating that can withstand the speed and temperature associated with hypersonic travel. To develop the unique coating—a type of ultra-high temperature ceramic (UHTC)—the researchers collaborated with China’s Central South University.
Gage Bilt’s split-system backpack reduces the weight of tools by up to 70%, reducing user fatigue and increasing productivity. Used with any split-system tool with a 5ft hose, this ergonomic accessory is comfortable and increases user mobility. The base of the tool rests conveniently in the backpack, while the operator only holds the much lighter pistol grip rivet tool. The hand held weight of our split-systems range from 1.5 lbs to 3 lbs, an efficient choice for your riveting team.
