Bearings are frequently used in industrial machinery as a way to transfer and/or bear a load. As their name suggests, ball bearings utilize balls designed to reduce friction while simultaneously supporting a load. They are often found in engine shafts, centrifugal pumps, locomotive axles, and even computer hardware where they can facilitate the smooth rotation of internal fan(s). While there are a variety of different ball bearings types, most of them consist of three basic parts which are the balls, races, and cage.

Furnaces are a common appliance found in buildings of all types, and they are used to generate heat for the means of managing room temperatures. In order to generate heat that is transferred through an HVAC system, the furnace relies on the combustion of fuel and the functionality of components like motors, filtration systems, and blower wheels. Blower wheels in particular are an essential element of furnaces, serving to move air in and out of the furnace during operations. Over time with regular use, blower wheels may face dirt buildups, those of which can cause significant losses in air circulation, furnace performance, and fuel efficiency. In order to save money on potential repairs and higher fuel requirements, it is essential that one knows how to properly clean the blower assembly of their furnace.

The Engine Indicating and Crew Alerting System (EICAS) and Electronic Centralized Aircraft Monitor (ECAM) are electronic systems in modern airliners that monitor various aircraft systems, such as the hydraulics, avionics, and fuel, and alert the pilots when a problem is detected. Additionally, these systems can assist pilots by displaying relevant checklists for addressing the detected malfunction. While both systems accomplish the same task, ECAM are used on Airbus aircraft, while EICAS are used on Boeing 737, 777, and 787, as well as on Embraer and Canadair aircraft. For more information about these two systems, read on as we discuss their use on modern planes.

Aircraft paint must be able to handle harsh weather conditions, exposure to various chemicals, and bend and flex, all the while looking good. To withstand these conditions, only two types of paint can be used: epoxy and enamel. These tough materials can be mixed with pigment and dyes to be used as paint, and they also act as a sealant, insulation, and adhesive in this and other applications. To choose the right paint for an aircraft, one needs to understand the different options available and the advantages of each.

For the armed forces, defeating threats long before they can be seen is their number one goal. To support their mission, BAE Systems is the premier mission systems provider in effective and affordable electronic warfare (EW) technologies. Electronic warfare systems are present on over 120 platforms and operate on 80% of US military fixed-wing aircraft, more than 95% of US Army rotary-wing aircraft, and their US allies. BAE Systems serves as the sole EW provider for modern aircraft and will likely extend its services well into the future.
