Spring Clips for Fourth Generation of Dodge Ram Brake

Manufactured with what is perhaps one of the most trouble-free brake systems, the fourth generation of Dodge Ram brakes come in both heavy-duty and light-duty packages. The heavy-duty package for 2500 and 3500 models utilise floating dual piston callipers in the front and in the rear. On the other hand, the light-duty package for 1500 model utilises floating dual piston callipers in the front and single piston floating callipers in the rear.

How Important is the Quality for Compression Springs?

Perhaps one of the most common types of metal spring, the compression spring is used either as an energy producer, a shock absorber, a vibration damper or a force generator. They are used in everything from the automotive industry to furniture and are an essential part in the functioning of many products upon which we depend.

Do Springs Work in Space?

We have been fascinated with space exploration for many years, and as we make our way further into space, more and more interesting questions are raised about how to solve particular problems that come with being in zero gravity. One of the things that we are interested in, however, is how springs and machinery and devices which use springs work in space. So, do springs work in space?

What’s the Difference Between an Automotive Engineer and an Automotive Mechanic?

The connection between engineers and mechanics can sometimes be unclear, and although they work together to put all the pieces of industry puzzles together, they are both very separate entities. In terms of automotive engineers and mechanics, engineers work on vehicles in a broader sense and are involved in everything from designing and developing new vehicles to improving performance. On the other hand, mechanics diagnose and repair vehicles, typically in a garage or workshop.

Collaborative Engineering and Its Importance

Defined as ‘working together to achieve a common goal’, regardless of industry, collaboration is a vital component in engineering. Collaborative engineering has risen as a response in the increasingly complex engineering problems and systems, as the level of difficulty and intricacy requires that several engineering teams work together.

Providing an input to a broad array of skills, engineers from all industries are vital to ensure not only an expert product design but also an optimised end product.
