There’s no doubt about it, the engineering world is rife with obscure jargon and technical terminology. Even engineers might scratch their heads if it’s a term from outside their specialty. Not only are a lot of these terms simply unfamiliar, sometimes a word means one thing in one industry and something else altogether in a different one. Here’s an example:
Bobbin: A thin, flat form or a small, cylindrical form used to hold wire windings. The bobbin remains part of the final assembly after wire has been wound onto it.
Bobbin–there’s a word that has multiple meanings, but at Minco, it’s used exclusively to talk about wire-wound sensors. To help our customers sort it all out, we created our Minco Glossary, the ultimate guide for speaking our language.
