Reverse Engineering

Finding replacement metal bellows components is easier with Servometer's time saving reverse engineering guidelines. Download White Paper Reverse Engineering guidelines Today's design engineers often find themselves in the uncomfortable predicament of replacing legacy parts or parts that have become obsolete. This predicament is often the result of undocumented drawings, part numbers, or specifications. In many cases, the original designer is no longer available. Whatever the reasons, it is often the job of the design engineer to propose a solution using outdated technology and resources or insufficient information. This paper offers hands on reverse engineering guidelines and provides a solution to finding the ideal replacement bellows for your application.

Electroforming Basics

Electroforming is the process of depositing thin layers of metal onto a mandrel through electroplating, dissolving the mandrel chemically, and leaving the plating as the final electroformed product. Learn how electroformed components are manufactured and how they can be applied to a variety of applications.

Step on It! Walking for Power

What would be an alternative energy resource that could work well in the middle of a crowded city? The answer was a technology that harvests mechanical energy of walking feet and converts it to electrical energy via a special floor tile. But it was a big step from theory to practical design.

The Road to Lightweight Vehicles

With a steady rise in fuel prices and increasing restrictions on emissions, automakers face difficult challenges as they are forced to find ways of making their cars lighter and more fuel-efficient. One way to achieve this goal is to incorporate strong, lightweight, and durable composite materials to replace heavier, more energy-hungry materials.
