Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

C-Clip Nesting Cap
The use of a nesting cap prevents snap-off of a shaft-securing C-clip,
particularly in high thrust conditions, and allows selection of cap material which is
compatible with the shaft-supporting wall.
Rotating shaft 10 experiences high axial load. This shaft is rotationally
supported in wall 11, and is secured thereto by C-clip 12. Nesting cap 13
surrounds the C-clip and prevents expansion (i.e., snap-off) of the clip under this
high axial load.
Cap 13 is fabricated of a material which is compatible with wall 11. For
example, the material of cap 13 provides a non-sticky bearing interface to an
aluminum wall 11.
In this construction, the diameter tolerance of hole 14, within wall 11, is not as
critical as it would be were cap 13 not used.
