  • Open Control Raises the Bar for Access Control
    wear gloves. Purdue University s Biometrics and Manufacturing Security Initiative ( ) has already demonstrated how all of these technologies could apply to drug manufacturing. High-tech access control will be particularly important to drug R &D operations, Purdue researchers say, since
  • High-performance hips
    resistance, higher fatigue strength, and superior wear performance. The challenge is being met through partnerships between orthopedic manufacturers, researchers, and material suppliers. Their combined efforts have contributed greatly to long-term clinical performance of surgical implants. Through
  • Tool Steel
    , or electroslag refining (ESR). As a result, tool steels are often specified for critical high-strength or wear-resistant applications. Because of their high alloy content, tool steels must be rolled or forged with care to produce satisfactory bar products. To develop their best properties, tool steels
  • Polyactuators: A strong and compact alternative
    just 0.6-in. clearance, provides strokes to 0.5 in., and handles loads to 100 lb at 35 psig. They can also be customized into specific sizes and shapes for a variety of applications. The actuators have no pistons, rods, or sliding seals, so friction, bending, scoring, and wear that can hamper
  • Iron-Based Superalloys
    by high temperature as well as room-temperature strength and resistance to creep, oxidation, corrosion, and wear. Wear resistance increases with carbon content. Maximum wear resistance is obtained in alloys 611, 612, and 613, which are used in high-temperature aircraft bearings and machinery parts
  • Molding a better plastic nut
    reinforcing fibers at thread surfaces, which will cause friction and accelerate wear as the nut touches the leadscrew. The graph compares the break-in-wear curves of an injection-molded thread versus its machined counterpart. The performance of power-transmission nuts made from plastics can vary drastically
  • Cryogenic Tool Conditioning Extends Useful Life
    Cryogenic Tool Conditioning: Fact or Frostbite? Exposure to extreme cold can cut wear so tools last longer. • Soaking parts at -300°F or less relieves internal stresses by "squeezing " crystal lattices. * Metal and semicrystalline polymer parts exhibit better dimensional stability and wear
  • Medical Device Link .
    , corrosion resistance, tensile strength, fatigue strength, modulus, wear resistance, processing, and cost. The vast majority of cobalt-based orthopedic implants worldwide have been manufactured using castings of ASTM F75, a cobalt-based alloy. Casting in this alloy provides desirable processing
  • Causing a stir in welding
    pieces being joined. The shoulder spins, creating frictional heat between the wear-resistant pin and two work pieces, which are butted together and clamped onto a backing bar. Heat softens
  • Caring for Cables
    Unprotected cables can twist, bind, and wear out fast. Machine tools, coordinate-measuring machines, palletizers, robots, ship-to-shore cranes, and laboratory medical equipment are just some of the applications for cable carriers. Cable carriers keep cables and hoses on translating and rotating
