Every motor, as well as being a motor, is also capable of generating electricity. If you examine a motor, you will see it is a series of low resistance coils of copper wire, wrapped around a soft iron core. If we connect this across a power source, this is essentially a dead short circuit. The reason why the motor does not burn out when connected is that, as soon as the motor starts to turn, it generates its own EMF, back toward the supply source that is making it turn.
This back EMF restricts the forward flow of electricity, thus preventing the motor from burning out. If we restrict the speed of the motor (overload it), we restrict its ability to generate a back EMF. As a result, too much forward current will flow, and this will cause the motor to burn.
Backlash (or lash) is the amount of free play left between gears in mesh. The purpose of this lash is to allow room for gears to expand when they are hot, and to leave clearance between gear teeth for lubricating oil.
Remember, it makes no difference how big or small the gears are, the science, theories and adjustments on them are still the same:
A baffle is a dividing partition in a sump, reservoir or exhaust box. The partition divides the area inside, but does not seperate it. For example, in the sump of an engine, the baffle plates stop the oil surging around, thus reducing the possibility of oil starvation if the vehicle is suddenly braked or is operated on a slope.
In an exhaust silencer box, there are baffles which assist in taking some of the engery out of the exhaust gasses and convert this engergy to heat. This makes the exhaust quieter.
The Baldoyle Telephone Number: 01-8167400
Originally, it was intended that Baldoyle become the new home of the Construction Plant Fitters' Course. The plan was that after the two Apprenticeship courses that ran from May to September 2011 finished, the CP Fitters' Section would move into specially prepared workshops in the Baldoyle Training Centre.
This plan was abandoned, and as of November 2013, it is most unlikely that the necessary building work will take place to allow CP Fitters to move in. We have had no official information as to our future. If and when we get any more information, we will post it on this site.
Please note, if you ring CP Fitters, we cannot put you through to the main training centre. CP Fitters have their premises in a different part of the Baldoyle Industrial Estate, and we are on a separate telephone network.
This is a spring loaded ball and socket joint used mostly in the steering systems of plant vehicles. The joint allows a range of movement between the various rods and linkages that make up the steering system.
If the ball joints are fitted to the track control rod, they may be called 'track control rod ends'. These have the same basic construction as the ball joint, they are just named differently because of where they are used.
This is a hammer used by construction plant fitters. It comes in different weights, usually up to 1kg (2lbs).
