Aircraft are composed of countless components, many of which must be secured with fasteners. For years, the aerospace fastener industry has continually developed new and stronger variations that can increase aircraft performance. As such, there are numerous types of standard fasteners, such as nuts, screws, rivets, bolts, pins, and collars. Since they are subjected to extreme environmental conditions like high pressures and high temperatures, they must be designed to withstand such environments.

Large aircraft are typically equipped with multiple electrical power sources as they necessitate extremely reliable power distribution systems. One type of power source that is often implemented is an AC generator. Most aircraft have two or more main AC generators controlled by aircraft turbine engines, and one backup AC generator. Other power sources implemented in large aircraft include DC systems as well as an aircraft battery to provide emergency power in the case of multiple failures.

Found in machinery of all industries, encoders are responsible for converting motion or optical interruption into an electrical signal. Providing feedback by implementing a control device within a motion control system capable of reading and transcribing motion, encoders are ultimately used to calculate position, count, speed, or direction. Producing either absolute or incremental signals when generating feedback, encoders are critical for controlling many mechanical systems, helping to determine what actions need to be taken to maintain high-precision for sensitive mechanical work.
