  • High Torque Precision Screw Tool | TechLink
    and missiles require high reliability and or operate in extreme environments They also specify the careful application of high levels of torque for maintenance however the rounded shape of the devices makes it difficult to do this work As a result upkeep on such devices is slow and inefficient performance and durability can be negatively impacted by over or under tightened screws or the equipment damaged when screw heads are stripped or screws break The NAWCWD solution is a lightweight handheld device compatible with work stand applications Previous devices required large ground mounted holding mechanisms The Navy invention hugs the rounded device housing and maintains consistent pressure by employing the same threading used by the screw to be removed or installed The tool is compatible with torque measuring devices to ensure that screws are precisely installed according to exacting specification requirements Benefits Field Portable The small lightweight device replaces large fixed mounts previously required for maintenance of cylindrical devices requiring high torque Accurate Compatible with torque measuring tools provides precise and consistent pressure by matching the pitch of the screw to be removed or installed Military Grade Developed and deployed by the US Navy to conduct maintenance on the AGM

  • Outboard Motor Quick Mount | TechLink
    for use by Special Operations forces works with transoms on both inflatable and traditional boats and has applications for a wide range of recreational professional law enforcement and military watercraft The mount utilizes a cam to secure the motor mount into position on the transom The cam can be readily engaged secured and disengaged for installation operation and removal tasks The cam is also engineered to tolerate repeated motor mounting and dismounting Traditional mounts for smaller outboard motors are cumbersome and typically lack durability when motors are removed and re installed multiple times Most existing mounts require two or more physically capable assistants in order to position a motor and mount on a boat Two tightening rods are then rotated or screwed inward to secure the mount to the transom Many common products in use are not engineered to be tightened and loosened repeatedly leading to separations and other failures Benefits Simple One person can easily place the motor and mount on a boat transom and quickly secure them in place with a single cam device that does not require tools Durable and Broadly Applicable Engineered to facilitate frequent motor mounting and dismounting without mechanical breakage or failures for a

  • Offset Force Clamp | TechLink
    Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division Lakehurst NAWCADLKE has designed built and patented an offset force clamp tool for use on grated or slotted cutting tables The tool enables work pieces to be quickly yet securely clamped to the table via a familiar locking pliers mechanism The offset design keeps the work area almost entirely unobstructed by positioning the bulk of the tool away from the work piece This device was designed and is in use for Navy water jet cutter operations The clamp is also suitable for plasma laser and other techniques that require a work piece be secured to a grated surface Traditional clamping methods essentially bolt pieces to the table in a manner that is slow cumbersome Such clamping techniques often obstruct the work field requiring additional time for further burdensome repositioning in order to complete the operation Benefits Fast and Simple Adjusts quickly and repositions easily to minimize setup time and increase productivity Unobtrusive Offset design distances the bulk of the tool away from the work piece to maximize access Simple Easily manufactured primarily from commercially available off the shelf components The Opportunity US patent 7 926 394 is available for license Potential for collaboration with NAWCADLKE
