POPPET VALVE

A cam-operated or spring-loaded reciprocating-engine mushroomtype valve used for control of admission and exhaust of working fluid; the direction of movement is at right angles to the plane of its seat.

PLIERS

A small instrument with two handles and two grasping jaws, usually long and roughened, working on a pivot; used for holding small objects and cutting, bending, and shaping wire.

PEDESTAL DESIGN

A robot design centered on the vertical axis of a central pedestal, in which the motion of any workpiece is confined to a spherical working envelope.

PACKAGING DENSITY

The number of components per unit volume in a working system or subsystem.

OPPOSED ENGINE

A reciprocating engine having the pistons on opposite sides of the crankshaft, with the piston strokes on each side working in a direction opposite to the direction of the strokes on the other side.

OPERATOR UTILIZATION

The ratio of working time to total clock time; a ratio of 1.00 (or 100) indicates full utilization of the operator's work time.

OPERATION ANALYSIS

An analysis of all procedures concerned with the design or improvement of production, the purpose of the operation, inspection standards, materials used and the manner of handling them, the setup, tool equipment, and working conditions and methods.

OPEN-CYCLE ENGINE

An engine in which the working fluid is discharged after one pass through boiler and engine.

OFFSET

1. A horizontal ledge on the face of a wall or other member that is formed by diminishing the thickness of the wall at that point. Also known as setback. 2. The steady-state difference between the desired control point and that actually obtained in a process control system. 3. A short perpendicular distance measured to a traverse course or a surveyed line or principal line of measurement in order to locate a point with respect to a point on the course or line. 4. In seismic prospecting, the horizontal distance between a shothole and the line of profile, measured perpendicular to the line. 5. In seismic refraction prospecting, the horizontal displacement, measured from the detector, of a point for which a calculated depth is relevant. 4. In seismic reflection prospecting, the correction of a reflecting element from its position on a preliminary working profile to its actual position in space.

OBLIQUE VALVE

A type of globe valve having an inclined orifice that serves to reduce the disruption of the flow pattern of the working fluid.
