In recent years the demands for precision machining of gears in automobile transmissions, for low noise and vibrations, has been ever increasing. Historically, conventional finish machining of gears was a pre-heat treatment operation typically by shaving. However, the requirement for higher precision forced a shift toward a post heat treatment operation using a generating process, which eliminates thermal distortion, thus enabling high quality and precision. The Mitsubishi ZE15A gear-grinding machine was duly developed for the high production line applications and launched into a domestic market typically dominated by European machines. (3) Ease of use for the user achieved via interactive dialog functions and full CNC control of all axes. This paper describes the principle of grinding and control for the ZE15A before presenting some machining examples.

Fifty percent less pedal force I n most of the models of the 1950s and 1960s, Mercedes-Benz provided a power brake booster manufactured by ATE. The booster does not pro- vide additional braking capacity, a common misconception, but rather reduces the pedal force required for braking. The power brake is a vacuum-assisted hydraulic component using the pressure difference between engine intake manifold vacuum and atmospheric pressure for its operation. The power unit increases the pressure created physically in the brake master cylinder so that the same braking effect can be produced with less pedal effort. With a brake booster installed, the pedal force required for braking is reduced by 50 percent. The ATE T50 Brake Booster uses vacuum to “boost” the hydraulic brakeline pressure. The booster contains a hydraulic cylinder, a large vacuum piston that presses against the hydraulic cylinder, and a control circuit that regulates the vacuum flow based on brake-line pressures. This technology had been well proven since the early 1900s, and the T50 has been exceptionally reliable over many years of use. The Booster in action The power booster is a very simple design requiring only a vacuum source to operate. In gasoline-engine cars, the engine provides a vacuum suitable for the boosters. Because diesel engines do not produce a vacuum, dieselpowered vehicles must use a separate vacuum pump. A vacuum hose from the intake manifold on the engine pulls air from both sides of the diaphragm when the engine is running. When the driver steps on the brake pedal, the input rod assembly in the booster moves forward, blocking off the vacuum port to the backside of the diaphragm and opening an atmospheric port that allows air to enter the back chamber. Suddenly, the diaphragm has vacuum pulling against one side and air pressure pushing on the other. The result is forward pressure that assists in pushing the input rod, which in turn pushes the piston in the master cylinder. The amount of power assist that’s provided by the booster depends on the size of the diaphragm and the amount of intake manifold vacuum produced by the engine. A larger diaphragm will increase the boost.

March 1997 ICF Incorporated Fairfax, VA BACKGROUND For the purposes of this survey, a flexible pipeline is defined as a pipeline constructed of flexible material that can be installed in single long runs without the necessity of regular joints either to extend the length of the line or change directions. This material is usually shipped in rolls that are hundreds of feet long, with the installer cutting lengths to fit the requirements of each installation. Most varieties of flexible piping are available with secondary containment either as an option or an integral part of the primary piping. In all cases, the secondary containment piping will not serve as primary piping. The secondary containment piping is designed to channel leakage back to a sump or monitor point, where it can be detected. Because these pipelines differ significantly from the more traditional steel and fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) pipelines, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has periodically requested a survey of their characteristics and availability. This is the third installment of this survey.1
DESCRIPTION OF A COFLEXIP® FLEXIBLE LINE The Coflexip® Flexible Line Coflexip® products are designed for oilfield services, both on and offshore, where heavy duty is required in combination with Flexible lines are manufactured in long continuous sections (up to several kilometres) and are cut to fit each client's requirements. End fittings with the most common types of end connectors are kept in stock thus minimising delivery times. End connectors not kept in stock will be machined or obtained according to the client's specifications. Delivery time depends mainly on the type of end connectors required and our client’s particular specifications. The pipe structure Coflexip® pipes are composed of successive layers of steel and thermoplastic to produce unique structures that have the strength and durability of steel pipes combined with the flexibility of reinforced rubber hoses. Each layer works independently from the others, as no vulcanisation is used during manufacturing. This results in the structural stability of the pipe. flexibility and Functions of Coflexip® pipe components reliability. These requirements are in applications such as: Choke and kill lines Rotary and vibrator lines Test lines Hydraulic lines Acid and cement lines Nitrogen lines Coflexip® flexible pipes for drilling and service applications are manufactured by the Drilling & Refining Applications Division of the Technip Group 2 1. The thermoplastic inner tube makes the pipe leak-tight. 2. The interlocked zeta and flat steel spiral pressure carcass resist internal pressure and external crushing loads. 3. The intermediate thermoplastic sheath is an anti-friction layer. 4. The double crosswound steel armours resist axial loads, protect the pipe from torsional strain resulting from handling and working conditions. 5. The thermoplastic outer jacket protects the armours from external corrosion. 6. The Stainless Steel Outer Wrap (SSOW), protects the pipe from mechanical impact, abrasion, weathering and accidental mishandling.
