On today’s episode of RapidFire, brought to you by 3D Creation Systems, your number one source for 3D printing services and technology, we’re exploring the emerging technology behind bionic 3D printing with embedded electronics.
Critics of the new 2.3% medical device excise tax are hitting new heights with their claims of dire consequences. What are the facts? Is the industry overreacting? Students of military strategy learn quickly the advantages of choosing when and where to fight, rather than wasting resources on trivial issues.
GreenPeak Technologies has posted a new White Paper called “Sentrollers and the Internet of Things”. In this paper Sentrollers are defined as a new, all-encompassing term for sensors, actuators and controllers – the various devices that make up the new Internet of Things.
Keyence's image dimension measurement system puts much faster in-process inspection within everyone's reach. Timex is America's leading watchmaker and is present in more than 80 countries. Fralsen, its French entity, makes watch movements using three technologies.
A Wayne State University researcher understands that the three most important things about real estate also apply to small ground robotic vehicles: location, location, location. Weisong Shi, Ph.D., associate professor of computer science in the College of Engineering, describes his development of a technique called LOBOT that provides accurate, real-time, 3D positions in both indoor and outdoor environments.
It’s a familiar scenario – a patient receives a medical implant and days later, the body attacks the artificial valve or device, causing complications to an already compromised system. Expensive, state-of-the-art medical devices and surgeries often are thwarted by the body’s natural response to attack something in the tissue that appears foreign.
Alloys like bronze and steel have been transformational for centuries, yielding top-of-the-line machines necessary for industry. As scientists move toward nanotechnology, however, the focus has shifted toward creating alloys at the nanometer scale—producing materials with properties unlike their predecessors.
Most Americans want the U.S. to place more emphasis on developing solar power, recent polls suggest. A major impediment, however, is the cost to manufacture, install and maintain solar panels. Simply put, most people and businesses cannot afford to place them on their rooftops.
New York University physicists have uncovered how energy is released and dispersed in magnetic materials in a process akin to the spread of forest fires, a finding that has the potential to deepen our understanding of self-sustained chemical reactions.
Stratasys (NASDAQ: SSYS) has announced the immediate availability of VeroDentPlus MED690 dental material for the Objet EdenV series of 3D Printers. VeroDentPlus MED690 enables the 3D printing of dental models that are highly accurate, economical to produce, and offer the appearance of dental stone with fine details and resolution.
Roxtec (Sweden) C RS T’s new approval for IP69K demonstrates its capability for protecting equipment during industrial high pressure cleaning with very hot water. The cable entry seal is designed for installation in cabinets and enclosures.
E-Switch (Minneapolis, MN) has announced an RGB color option for the LP6 series LED illuminated pushbutton switch.
