  • Actuator
    An actuator is a component of a machine that is responsible for moving or controlling a mechanism or system.
  • Flywheel
    A flywheel is a rotating mechanical device that is used to store rotational energy.
  • Sail
    A sail is means for redirecting the power of the wind to propel a craft on water, ice or land.
  • Rivet
    A rivet is a permanent mechanical fastener.
  • Drivetrain
    The drivetrain of a motor vehicle is the group of components that deliver power to the driving wheels.
  • Cam
    A cam is a rotating or sliding piece in a mechanical linkage used especially in transforming rotary motion into linear motion or vice versa.
  • Crankshaft
    A crankshaft—related to crank—is a mechanical part able to perform a conversion between reciprocating motion and rotational motion.
  • Gear
    A gear or cogwheel is a rotating machine part having cut teeth, or cogs, which mesh with another toothed part to transmit torque.
  • Machine element
    Machine element refers to an elementary component of a machine.
  • Mechanical fan
    A fan is a machine used to create flow within a fluid, typically a gas such as air.
  • Machine
    A machine is a tool containing one or more parts that uses energy to perform an intended action.
  • Propeller
    A propeller is a type of fan that transmits power by converting rotational motion into thrust.
  • Engineering tolerance
    Engineering tolerance is the permissible limit or limits of variation in: 1.
  • Gasket
    A gasket is a mechanical seal which fills the space between two or more mating surfaces, generally to prevent leakage from or into the joined objects while under compression.
  • Linear actuator
    A linear actuator is an actuator that creates motion in a straight line, in contrast to the circular motion of a conventional electric motor.
  • Axle
    An axle is a central shaft for a rotating wheel or gear.
  • Wheel
    A wheel is a circular component that is intended to rotate on an axle bearing.
  • Pipe (fluid conveyance)
    A pipe is a tubular section or hollow cylinder, usually but not necessarily of circular cross-section, used mainly to convey substances which can flow — liquids and gases (fluids), slurries, powders and masses of small solids.
  • Bayonet mount
    A bayonet mount (mainly as a method of mechanical attachment, as for fitting a lens to a camera) or bayonet connector (for electrical use) is a fastening mechanism consisting of a cylindrical male side with one or more radial pins, and a female receptor with matching L-shaped slot(s) and with spring(s) to keep the two parts locked together.
  • Propulsion
    Propulsion is a means of creating force leading to movement.
  • Security seal
    Security seals are mechanisms used to seal shipping containers in a way that provides tamper evidence and some level of security.
  • Ball (bearing)
    Bearing balls are special highly spherical and smooth balls, most commonly used in ball bearings, but also used as components in things like freewheel mechanisms.
