Lowe’s recently developed the conceptual design for a line of modular wheelchair ramps and asked Americana if they wanted to compete for the job of completing the design and building the product. Americana did not have the capabilities for the project and engaged FISHER/UNITECH, a SolidWorks reseller, to help the company get started with SolidWorks as quickly as possible.
Firefighters and mechanics tried repeatedly to put out a battery fire aboard a Boeing 787 Dreamliner through smoke so thick they couldn't see the battery, according to documents released Thursday that portray the incident as more serious than previously described. The Jan. 7 fire at Boston's...
The Unleashing Engineering Creativity workshop and book explore powerful creativity stimulation techniques.
Asymmetric Fasteners (Hackettstown, NJ) has introduced a new bolt that works with the standard 60 degree female thread.
The Surveyor is a new thermal imaging camera system from Process Sensors Corporation.
Baldor Electric Company (Fort Smith, AR) has introduced a line of shaft mount right-angle beltless Motorized Torque-Arm reducers in a full range of 7 sizes from 3 to 100 HP with torque ratings of up to 130,000 inch/lbs.
Every year thousands of people in Europe are paralysed by a spinal cord injury. Many are young adults, facing the rest of their lives confined to a wheelchair. Although no medical cure currently exists, in the future they could be able to walk again thanks to a mind-controlled robotic exoskeleton being developed by EU-funded researchers.
Researchers at MIT and the Santa Fe Institute have found that some widely used formulas for predicting how rapidly technology will advance — notably, Moore’s Law and Wright’s Law — offer superior approximations of the pace of technological progress.
Dr. Christopher Williams, Assistant Professor and Director of the DREAMS (Design, Research and Education for Additive Manufacturing Systems) Lab, will discuss how additive manufacturing is being used at Virginia Tech in a webinar titled The Future of Manufacturing and Design with Additive Manufacturing, on March 19th at 2:00 p.m. CST.
Researchers at MIT and the Santa Fe Institute have found that some widely used formulas for predicting how rapidly technology will advance — notably, Moore’s Law and Wright’s Law — offer superior approximations of the pace of technological progress. The new research is the first to directly compare the different approaches in a quantitative way...
Support structures wrapped in gold thermal blankets that look like a golden cage are housed within the vacuum chamber called the Space Environment Simulator, or SES. The SES is located at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., where components of the James Webb Space Telescope are being tested to withstand the extreme temperatures of space.
In the first gender benchmarking study of its kind, researchers have found that numbers of women in the science, technology and innovation fields are alarmingly low in the world's leading economies, and are actually on the decline in others, including the United States.
American astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson says he would like to go to space himself, or at the very least help others get there, but he's content living vicariously through the robots for now.
There’s a product out there that is living in fear. Yes, it is quite terrified…of water. It’s so terrified of water in fact that it can’t even stand to be around it.
EIC Solutions (Warminster, PA) has advanced the circuitry engineering in their cooling units to provide maximum cooling output regardless of available power supplies or the integrity of the voltage flow. EIC air conditioners run off either an AC or DC power source with consistently high power utilization efficiency.
