The Boeing 747-400 is made up of 6 million parts— of those, half are fasteners. If you’ve never seen an aircraft up close and in person, you probably can’t imagine why of 6 million parts, 3 million are aviation fasteners. Well, that’s because fasteners are any piece of hardware used to mechanically join or affix two or more objects together. So, it makes sense that half of the 747’s part list is fasteners; what wouldn’t make sense is if all 3 million fasteners were of the same type.
Fasteners are actually a very broad category. They can be grouped based on the type of head, the threading, whether or not they use a nut or a washer, what kind of drive they have, whether they have points or not, etc. One example is the hex bolt, a bolt with a hexagonal head and threads for use with a nut or tapped hole, and its variation, the heavy hex head bolt.
Heavy hex bolts are bolts that have larger and thicker than head than the standard. They are available in different lengths and diameters or different threading, but they are all marked by their hex head and the fact they have larger than standard heads. They are also all designed to be used with hex nuts for a more secure fit. Typically made from metals such as stainless steel, hex bolts can be customized via zinc, cadmium, or hot-dip galvanized plating.
Like other fasteners, heavy hex bolts are made based on a number of different ASTM specifications. ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials, is an international standards organization that develops and publishes technical standards for a variety of materials, products, services, and systems. So, while heavy hex bolts can vary in size, material, and plating, they are manufactured in order to meet certain standards in regard to grades, mechanical properties, and chemical properties. For example, the A193 standard calls for heavy hex bolts and nuts that can withstand high heat conditions, A320 standard calls for heavy hex bolts and nuts that can withstand extremely low heat conditions, and A490 and A325 standards call for heavy hex bolts with shorter threads.
Thanks to their stronger durability, heavy hex bolts are typically used in a variety of industrial sectors. While they’re incredibly useful, you won’t find a heavy hex bolt among the 3 million fasteners on a Boeing 747-400— their characteristically larger and thicker than average hex heads make them less than ideal for applications where excess weight matters. Instead, common uses include steel fabrication, railroad system construction, pump and water treatment, modular building construction, and renewable and alternative energy.

In keeping with the Army’s broad strategic aim for the Bradley, they’ve decided to arm the Bradley Inc's Fighting Vehicles with Stinger heat-seeking missiles. This will aid with the infantry’s ability to monitor air threats and eradicate them. Presently, most Bradleys are equipped with tube-launched, optically-tracked, wire-guided (TOW) anti-tank missiles. These missiles are land weapons used to attack vehicles and bunkers.
Unfortunately, TOW missiles cannot be used for air threats such as drones, helicopters, or aircrafts. But with the addition of Stinger missiles, the Bradleys will be capable of better protection from threats from the ground and from the air.
Stinger missiles are “infrared-guided surface-to-air” weapons. These missiles have twice the range that TOW missiles do. While TOW missiles can hit targets more than four kilometers away, Stinger missiles can hit targets up to eight kilometers away. The Stinger missiles’ ability to use long-range, high-tech sensors allow the infantry to better locate enemy targets.
Introducing Stinger missiles onto Bradley vehicles is part of the Army’s short-range air defense strategy (SHORAD). Their main goal is to enforce air defense weapons in the infantry. For instance, both China and Russia have helicopters armed with weapons that pose major threats to infantry troops. The concept of SHORAD is to eliminate these targets prior to a greater attack.
Bradleys not only need weapons to protect themselves from attacks on ground, but weapons to protect from attacks in air as well, especially because of easy access to drone attack technology. Bradley vehicles are important in infantry because infantry troops do not have the same weaponry or ground mobility that these vehicles do.

In the early days of aviation, there were no brake systems to slow and stop the aircraft while it was on the ground. Instead, slow speeds, soft airfield surfaces, and friction caused by the tail skid were used to reduce speed during ground operations. Fortunately, that’s no longer the case and all modern aircraft have brakes.
1. For most aircraft, each of the main wheels is equipped with a brake unit utilizing mechanical and/or hydraulic linkages connected to rudder pedals allowing the pilot to control the brakes. The kinetic energy of pressing on the rudder pedals causes friction to be applied on the wheels, turning into heat energy which can cause damage to the brake system components. As a result, proper adjustment, inspection, and maintenance for all brake system components is crucial.
2. Aircraft brakes are usually disc brakes, where the disc rotates with the turning wheel assembly while a stationary caliper resists the rotation by causing friction against the disk when the brakes are applied. While smaller and lighter aircraft can suffice with single disc brakes, there are also dual and multiple disc brakes used depending on the type of aircraft. For larger aircraft, there are segmented rotor brakes.
3. In addition to brake assemblies, there are other components to be worried about. Brake actuating systems are how the required hydraulic fluid pressure is delivered to the brake assemblies. There are three basic types of actuating systems: 1) an independent system not part of the aircraft’s main hydraulic system; 2) a booster system that uses the main hydraulics intermittently; and 3) a power brake system that primarily uses the main hydraulics. There are also emergency brake systems and anti-skid systems, both of which have their own laundry list of parts and components requiring regular maintenance and repair.
Because of the nature of braking, things like overheating and dragging are common ways in which brake systems can be damaged. As a result, it’s important to check every part of the brake system, from the seals and lining to the housing and discs.

Earlier in June, THAT Corporation announced the availability of the 626x Programmable Preamplifiers. The 6261, 6263, and 6266 Programmable Preamplifiers are available in a 7mm X 7mm 48-pin quad flat no-leads (QFN) package. They are digitally controlled, 2-channel preamplifiers with integrated analog to digital converter (ADC) drivers. The gain, or amplification factor, for these preamplifiers is programmable from -8 dB to +34 dB. They are low-powered at 60 mW and can be powered from unipolar (+10V and +5V) or bipolar (±5V) power supplies.
The 626x series has three products, each identifiable by step size. The 6261 has a 1 dB step, the 6263 has a 3 dB step, and the 6266 has a 6 dB step. All three preamps offer outstanding noise performance, with the 6261’s Equivalent Input Noise (EIN) at -127 dBu and the 6263 and 6266 at -126 dBu, at maximum gain. The dynamic range for all three at minimum gain is up to 118.7 dB.
In order to minimize the audibility of gain changes with signal, the 626x series can be programmed to synchronize gain changes with signal zero crossings. And, in order to enable seamless external gain changes, a BUSY pin for each channel allows external events to be synchronized with zero crossings. Each of the channels may also be set to a low-powered standby mode and muted by about 62 dB.
A 4-wire SPI interface running at up to 7.5 MHz (+3.3V supply) controls the preamps. They can also be daisy-chained to multiple devices using one chip select. There are also four general purpose logic outputs, or GPOs, available to control external circuitry. The GPOs can also be synchronized with zero-crossings.
The 626x Programmable Preamplifiers can be used for a variety of applications, from digitally controlled input stages to audio mixing consoles to PC audio interfaces.
At ASAP Aero Supplies, owned and operated by ASAP Semiconductor, we should always be your first and only choice in IT hardware and electronic parts.

On January 18, 2018 the Dubai-based Emirates Airline signed a Memorandum of Understanding, (MoU), at the airline’s headquarters in Dubai. The Memorandum of Understanding, (MoU), was signed by the chairman and chief executive, HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, and the chief operating officer, John Leahy. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed for the commitment of 20 new A380 aircrafts from Airbus with the option to add 16 more in the near future, for a total of up to 36 aircrafts. This commitment will start its deliveries in the year of 2020 at the cost of $16 billion.
The A380 aircraft is one of the most successful aircrafts for Emirates and it is continuing to improve. It is one of the direct causes of Emirates’ growth back in 2008. It can already fly 8,200 nautical miles non-stop while carrying 575 passengers throughout all 4 of its classes. The number of passengers results in less flights and therefore less air traffic. All of this is possible with plenty of room, a quiet cabin, a smooth and comfortable ride, the widest seats, two widebody decks, bigger aisles, and more floor space.
The A380 will also soon be used as fleet replacements along with remaining the largest passenger aircraft in the world. There is, on average, a A380 aircraft landing or departing from one of the 240 airports every two minutes, and over 200 million passengers have already flown on a A380 aircraft. It is also made to book easily on the iflyA380.com website to allow all passengers to avoid booking any other aircraft.

Boom, a supersonic aircraft company, announced their plans to pick an engine that will power their developmental airliner programme. Boom has a mission to break the barriers of modern day aircraft travel. Using supersonic speed, Boom will decrease the amount of time an individual spends in an aircraft, making aircraft travel less of a hassle. This will also allow individuals to spend more time in the place they want to be, allow people to explore new places in a time crunch, and less time away from things that are important.
Although the company is new, and just beginning to take off, they have big plans. The main concern the company has currently is perfecting their plane to make supersonic travel a reality. They have yet to decide if they will have a derivative commercial engine, or a clean-sheet powerplant. Boom intends to create its own engine, rather than using a military engine because it will require a lot more controls and over all complexity than what is already on the market. The plans for the supersonic aircraft indicate that the engine will be using three non-afterburning, medium bypass turbofan engines. The boom factory that will be producing these engines will be sized for assembly of up to 100 parts per year.
The cost of the tickets for round trip travel is estimated to be $5,000 per a person. This will be confirmed once the operating fuels can be confirmed, as that will either raise or lower the cost. The company has already gotten 76 orders for the supersonic aircrafts. The company also plans to put private jets into production. The interior of the aircraft is deigned to an experience that is nothing short of luxurious. Each seat will have a large personal window, and first class like seating.
