When it comes to the aerospace industry, money plays a huge factor since most parts and components are expensive and must be certified. So many companies deal with not being able to move forward with projects because the lack of money they are available to. Recently, the government of Canada gave a 283-million-dollar loan to Bombardier, which they will use for the 7000-business jet and C series aircraft programs. This money will be used for research and development for the new Bombardier Global 7000 business jet that is scheduled to release within four years. It is also going to be used for new activities to market their aircraft program. Lastly, it is going to fund several middle-class jobs and the beginning of a new generation of aircraft.
The main reason Canada gave this loan was because they wanted to keep the jobs to Canadians. With this loan, they could secure the high skilled, well-paying middle class jobs in their country. This can also allow Canadians to make a name for themselves in the aerospace industry because this Global 7000 flies very high ranked important people. This jet has a cabin experience that no other jet can compare to and they only want to get better because they believe a customer’s comfort is number one while traveling. The C series aircraft deals with many types of planes that could be marketed all over the world because every pilot could use a two engine, medium range jet and other smaller jets.
Canada believes it was a great investment to keep them competitive in the aerospace industry, and maybe innovate to put them on top of the game. They felt like Bombardier would be a good way to stay in the industry because they are one of the best in the aerospace sector.

On January 12 2017, there was an article by Senior Editor Jim Lorincz who wrote for Fastener News talking about how there will be flawless engine fasteners by 3D laser gaging from the company, Brugola OEB Industriale S.p.A. This Italian fastener company is uses high performance and dynamic bolts that are used in engine assembly. The company has been working on engine fasteners for than three generations.
To give an idea of how many fasteners are in an automobile engine, here is what Lorincz says:
"In an automobile engine, seven types of screws out of approximately 70 are considered critical to achieving the engine’s specified design performance, despite high vibration and heat. The seven include bolts for the cylinder head, crankshaft, con rod, flywheel, and main bearing cap, as well as for the camshaft cap, camshaft sprocket and VCT.”
Brugola OEB Industriale S.p.A. has many automotive customers such as Bugatti, BMW, and Aston Martin. By using a 3D laser gaging and axial vision inspection, the company is able to ensure that these fasteners will provide the engines to perform at its top levels.
Here is what Antonino Occhionero, the plant manager at Brugola’s Plymouth, MI plant has to say about the company and president.
“Once our president saw 3D laser gaging, he knew it would be a critical part of our quality control process to achieve zero defects. Our philosophy has always been to assure that all fastener dimensions are 100% accurate. He recognized laser gaging as a superior method to ensure such quality.”
On November 22nd 2016, there was an article posted on Fastener World that was talking about how Nord-Lock has a new combi bolt that can improve the safety, efficiency and accurate assembly while keep inventory at a minimum. These combi bolts washers are available in different sizes such as the NL5, NL6, NL8, NL10, NL10sp, and NL12. These combi bolt wasters use a wedge locking technology that allows for more safety. These are also designed so that the bolt has a permanently attached washer.
These combi bolt washers will be very helpful for MROs or maintenance repair and operations which are used across many industries. These are also very easy to use.

These new series of connectors have been built with a smaller more compact structure considered to be a low profile BM29. This BM29 was built to have an enhanced powered connectivity while being able to save space for micro applications. Per the manufacture, Hirose Electric Group the BM29 comes to be one of world’s smallest hybrid FPC-to-board connectors. Designed with a uniquely small structure with “the height 0.6mm, depth of 1.5mm and a width of 3.16mm.” These series of connectors are equipped with receptacles and plugs that are compatible with Flat Printed Circuit to hook with a board connection. Noted to be a hybrid connector that is imposed with ratings on the power contacts at a 3A and its signal contacts at a 0.3A.
Many buyers might be disillusioned from its micro size but Hirose can insure that its size is no factor to its capabilities. According to the manufactures of the connectors the high performance is “due to the provision of 2-point contacts and a long effective mating length of 0.1mm.” Created to have an easy mating system by incorporating the X-direction at a 0.3mm in separation while the Y direction is at 0.24mm of separation for the Guide ribs to be easily incorporated. The manufactures have also created the connector with a metal guide in case of any incorrect mating that may occur in the process of incorporation. Alongside metal locks that decrease the chances of unintended inmating that may be caused by drop impact and increase the retention force.
Some key features the connector has to offer are ,“Number of contacts: 2 signal/2 power (6 signal/2 power, 10 signal/2 power under development), Contact pitch: 0.35mm, Current rating: 0.3A signal/3A power Stack height: 0.6mm, Voltage rating: 30V, Mating cycles: 10, Halogen-free “Applications that are often well compatible with the connector are,” point-of-sale equipment, medical devices, wearable devices, small sensors, IOT modules and other small portable devices.”
Hirose is one of the best companies out there. They have been established since 1937. Ever since they have developed and introduced thousands of connectors that are beneficial for so many people they are well known in their industry. They manufacture connectors and have been the cause of the fast development in the field. Their goal is to always broaden the scope of their business activities they manage to do that by keeping pace with market advances and trying to satisfy the changing connector needs of companies in Europe, Asia and in North America.
Their international strategies are a reason they have been around for such a long time. They are always dedicated to meeting connector demands worldwide. So, this really does help them hold a better business while helping people around the world find the best connectors they can get. They recently have introduced the FH53 series. They have a range of flat printed circuit connectors thus new connector that they have developed offer excellent impedance characteristics. It delivers high density transmission required to support embedded Display Port per 1.3. Some of the key features for this new connector is that it has over 1941 number of contacts. Its pitch is around .2mm, the current rating is around 02A and the voltage rating is AC/DC30V, it is RoHS compliant and Halogen free. With this new connector Hiros they are reaching their goal and meeting with the connector demand.
They are constantly contributing to progress in connector technology. Hirose are based on quality they always when producing any connectors, they always look for highest quality while still being affordable. This is what every customer seeks, any product that is reliable due to its quality while still being affordable. They have been certified as a QS9000 company in November in 2000. They also continue to be certified as a ISO 9001:2008.
