FAQ's Trib-Joining
New Coupling Technology

Application notes - metal-to-metal couplings.

Also review "FAQ's for TRIB-JOINING" which deal with more practical aspects of how and where to use Trib-joins and how they behave.


bulletNote 1- Trib technology theory - how to make high friction metal joins - explains the theory of Trib-joins.


bulletNote 2- Increased friction secures dowel pins - describes how Trib joins are used to secure a wide variety of different locking pin forms.


bulletNote 3- Building thin wall tube structures with Trib-Joins - describes a simple join that can be used in a variety of forms to assemble tubular structures.


bulletNote 4-  Composite crank shafts made with Trib-Joins - describes how to make composite crankshafts from fine blanked or sintered parts.


bulletNote 6- High friction Trib-joins vs. Anaerobic adhesive joins - a competitive assessment.


bulletNote7- Attaching gears to shafts with Trib-joins - describes various methods of cold welding gears to shafts ranging from small to large.


bulletNote 8- Light weight built-up beam made with Trib-Joins - shows how Trib-joins can be used to assemble load-bearing light weight structures.


bulletNote 9- Ideas for light weight drive shafts made with Trib-Joins - shows a simple press together hollow construction that reduces weight to one third.


bulletNote 11- Long reach tooling made with Trib-Joins shows two examples of long reach tools made with TRIB-joins instead of messy brazing.


bulletNote 14 - Balance shafts made with Trib-Joins - shows how weight can be reduced by replacing a casting with a light weight assembly.


bulletNote 15 - Making light weight composite camshafts with Trib-joins - shows how to make a camshaft from individual components.


bulletNote 16 - Making light weight cylinders for automobile drum brakes with Trib-Joins shows a novel approach to making light weight brake components.


bulletNote 18 - Fusion Roller assembly for copying machines made with Trib-Joins - shows how to overcome the thermal fatigue failures commonly experienced with friction welded dissimilar metal joins (aluminium to hard steel).


bulletNote 20 - High grip self locking quick-change angle-poise joins - self locking pivoting joints.


bulletNote 21 - Improved grip self tightening quick-change chucks and couplings - shows concepts for making novel high grip self locking couplings


bulletNote 23 - Releasable heavy duty enhanced friction couplings - shows concepts for enhancing the coupling strength of 'metal matrix composite' coupling elements, this combination provides  exceptional strength when used as expandable releasable dowels or tubular sleeve couplings


bulletNote 24 - Improved oil injection procedure for bearing retention - shows concepts for introducing friction enhancing medium into oil injection procedures for securing large bearing races and for strengthening large shrink fit assemblies.


bulletNote 25 - Expandable tubular joins - shows examples of development joins
