Manufacturing Process: Done using a lathe and screw threading machine.
Function: Screws into pneumatic system. Head width(side to opposite side) is .747 inches. Length of bolt is .748 inches. Thread count is 10 threads in the .500 inch length of the screw.
Brass was selected because its easier to manufacture, and they could get away with using it instead of steel.
Applied forces are only the forces acting between threads when the screw is tightened.
The magnitude of force is estimated at 14 lbs.
Each manufacturing process was chosen for this component because it was the easiest, fastest, and cheapest way to do it at high volumes of product.
The component is functional.
On a scale from 1-5, 1 being the simple like a ball, and 5 being complex like a engine, this component is a 1. This component is simple.
