Researchers at Tata Steel are hoping graphene could provide an environmentally friendly way to protect buildings from corrosion.
A new heat-based technique for counting and measuring the size of microscopic particles has been developed in the US.
Flexible electronic devices could become easier to manufacture thanks to a novel component developed at Surrey University, researchers claim.
Will we ever be able to 3D print an aircraft wing? Our panel of experts answers your questions on what additive manufacturing can and can’t do.
At Salford University, which is one of only two universities in the UK that teaches prosthetic design, SF-1400 Hydra-Clamps from WDS have been in use for more than 20 years without needing maintenance. The department relies on the clamps to keep the prosthetics absolutely still while work is carried out; the Hydra-Clamp is effectively sealed and offers long-lasting reliability.
Swiss cable system specialist Fortatech can offer its customers a rapid response to prototype and development parts required on short lead times thanks to Proto Labs’ services.
The Kitagawa VE-N series of low-profile steel vises, available from 1st Machine Tool Accessories, is suitable for long-size work and the simultaneous machining of multiple workpieces.
Aerotech’s engineering reference guide serves as a valuable resource for all Aerotech motion and positioning control components and systems. Section 12 focuses on electrostatic discharge protection.
An ABB robotic welding cell is enabling agricultural machinery manufacturer Shelbourne Reynolds to reduce production times for its range of articulated hedge-cutting tractor attachments. Handling the several hundred welds entailed in the production of the attachments, the cell has so far cut welding process times by 66 per cent compared with the company’s previous manufacturing process.
Home appliance manufacturer Neff has utilised the Protomold rapid injection moulding service from Proto Labs to assist in the development of the plastic guide rails of the fully retractable Hide oven door.
As Heraeus Noblelight explains, the last two decades have seen a rapid expansion of the application of powder coating throughout a range of industries. Indeed, in North America, powder coating is seen as the fastest growing of all finishing technologies and today represents more than 10 per cent of all industrial finishing applications. Much of this growth can be accounted for by the need to comply with increasingly stringent environmental legislation and to reduce emissions of environmentally .
