Abstract

Details of Some Components Used for Subsidiary Services in Aircraft, Missiles and Space Vehicles. A flexible pipe specifically designed for aircraft ground services and test rigs using the Skydrol 500 type of hydraulic fluid has been developed by Dunlop. Skydrol is widely used in aviation because of its fire resistant properties but the fluid is particularly searching and the Dunlop GW.95 flexible pipe gives maximum resistance against contamination in use.

Abstract

The Aviation Division of the Dunlop Co. Ltd. (Engineering Group) is to install Dynex power units, designed and built by Applied Power (U.K.) Ltd., in the latest design of hydraulic production test rigs at the Division's Coventry factory. The company is completely re‐equipping its production test facilities by providing every rig with the higher pressures and flows which future trends in fluid technology will demand, and to ensure that each testing station is capable of handling service fluids currently in use, including kerosene, DTD 585, Skydrol, Lockheed 22 and Oronite.

Abstract

MANY who realise the implications of White's book on The Organisation Man have probably closed it with the self‐satisfied reflection that ‘it can't happen here.’ That is the anodyne we generally swallow to protect us from disagreeable fears.

Abstract

NOT perhaps the most vintage of Farnboroughs from the point of view of new aircraft and new technology, but undoubtedly one of the most successful in relation to the business done. Some fifteen major orders worth over £32½ million were announced, bringing the total order book for the industry this year to more than £782 million already. This exceeds by a handsome margin the new business won by the industry in any nine‐month period in the past, and it is expected that by the end of the year orders worth well over £800 million will have been received. Highlights of the new British hardware on show were the Hawker Siddeley Nimrod and production Harriers on the military side; the B.A.C. One‐Eleven 500, the Handley Page Jetstream, the Garrett‐engined Short Skyvan, and the Beagle Pups showed the resurgence of the industry's civil interests. The number of foreign aircraft that appeared, sponsored in the main by Rolls‐Royce, bore witness to the strength of Britain's aero engine and aircraft equipment industry, and further evidence of this was found in the exhibition proper with many examples of major items of equipment having been adopted for overseas markets. The overall impression at Farnborough was a new‐found confidence in the future of the industry exemplified by a more aggressive and effective export sales policy that has already proved our ability to deliver the goods. It is not possible to cover all the exhibits shown at Farnborough, but the report following describes many of the interesting items.

Abstract

Invented and manufactured by the French company AHG (Ateliers de la Haute‐Garonne), the MATT rivet has been specially formulated to prolong the life of riveting in thin sheet metals. The original design allows controlled expansion of the head and shank, and most importantly, the head expands into the countersink to ensure a precise interference fit which does not require additional sealants.
