  • Rotary Metal Chip Drying System
    EnviroAir furnished a custom metal chip drying system for drying and de-oiling chips from an aluminum machining operation. The chips are created from, and used for the manufacturing of pistons in the automotive industry. The model discussed in this article has a nominal production capacity of 1000
  • A bright idea for the operating room
    . Reflectors injection-molded from Ultem 1000 PIE, in combination with aluminum metallization, produce what's called a cold mirror -- it directs visible light downward while radiating infrared heat upward toward the top of the lamp and away from the patient. Another benefit of Ultem PIE is its ability
  • Looking Back
    10 YEARS AGO -- MARCH 11, 1999 Handheld PC keeps on-the-go executives in touch: The HP 660LX palmtop computer from is the first handheld PC to come with a 56k modem and 32-Mbyte RAM, double the memory of most palmtops. Priced at about $1,000, the device gives users fast access to e-mail
  • A New "Twist " On Nanostructures
    to that used for nanobelts and nanosprings makes nanohelices. Zinc-oxide powder goes inside an alumina tube, which itself goes in a horizontal high-temperature tube furnace. The furnace heats the material under vacuum to about 1,000 C, at which point an argon carrier gas is introduced. Heating
  • Sensors eye Fluids And Lubricants
    sensor features a separate probe and display console. The smaller AS 1000 incorporates signal-processing electronics in the aluminum housing, making it suited for OEM installations. Both products measure dissolved water content. The handheld HMG 3000 simultaneously acquires and displays data from 10
  • Give glue a go
    , and corrosion, explains Scelzi Shop Foreman Jose Villa. The switch to Lord Engineered Adhesives not only seals the cabs from the environment, it cut 3 hr from the prep and painting process, improved truck appearance by eliminating weld marks, and did away with 100 rivets attaching aluminum diamond plate
  • Image makeover for product packaging
    to package 1,000 lb of corn, but just 13 lb. of plastic can do the same job. And plastic packaging itself has become more efficient. A plastic milk jug, for instance, now consumes a third less plastic than jugs made in the 1970s. There are fuel savings as well that stem from the use of plastic. It takes
  • Bearing Materials
    . Alloys with various proportions of molybdenum, tungsten, chromium, vanadium, aluminum, and silicon are used to produce hardness at high temperatures. The ball-bearing industry has used SAE 52100 steel as a standard material since 1920. This is a high-carbon chromium steel which also contains small
