Rivets are a common fastener type used in numerous industries and construction applications, allowing for a permanent joint to be installed with the use of a single component and tool. With a standard rivet, the installation process simply required one to pass the tail-end of the fastener through a preformed hole before deforming it to create a second head. While this installation technique is quite easy, it requires one to have access to both sides of an assembly, that of which may not be the most feasible for applications such as aircraft construction. In these cases, specialized fasteners must be used, the most popular form being the pop rivet.
All internal combustion engines require a spark source in order to ignite the fuel-air mixture in the combustion chamber. While many vehicles have transitioned to battery-powered coil-type ignition systems, aircraft still rely on century-old magneto technology to create the spark necessary for combustion. These small devices are considered to be one of the most reliable components featured on the aircraft, owing to their simplicity and non-dependence on other systems. Due to FAA regulations and industry standards, customers generally must choose between two magneto types: Bendix or Slick. In this blog, we will discuss some of the main differences between these devices in an attempt to help you decide which is most in line with your individual requirements.
