Capturing Growth

Capturing Growth Automatic data capture systems, such as bar code scanners and printers, and RFID tags have become mainstays in the warehouse and the factory, but market growth for these devices was the same in 2007 as it was in 2006 — a modest 10%. The wearable mobile computer segment showed the most growth — about 15% according to this survey from Modern Materials Handling. Going forward, the RFID market is expected to grow by over 30% per year for the next five years. Is your warehouse or plant using these devices? What do you think has hindered recent growth?

Great Moments in Engineering . . .
Engineering Team Behind First Mass-Produced Catalytic Converter Receives 2008 GlobalSpec Great Moments in Engineering Award
Engineering Team Behind First Mass-Produced Catalytic Converter Receives
2008 GlobalSpec Great Moments in Engineering Award

On Tuesday, October 21, the GlobalSpec Great Moments in Engineering Award was presented to a team of engineering, research, and development professionals from General Motors in honor of the 35th anniversary of the creation of the first catalytic converter emission control system for cars.

This small band of professionals from General Motors and its AC Spark Plug Division conceived, designed, led the assembly, created, and tested the world's first production-ready catalytic converter emission control system for vehicles. Their work paved the way for unleaded fuels becoming viable, ultimately resulting in significant health and economic benefits to hundreds of millions of people in the United States and around the globe.

Richard Klimisch, Ph.D., General Motors' first catalyst expert, accepted the award on behalf of the team. Alan Taub, executive director, GM Research & Development, and Robert Stempel, past GM chairman and one of the nominees, also addressed attendees. Read the full story.

All About Material Handling

All About Material Handling The largest material handling show and conference in North America will feature more than 800 manufacturers and service providers. A series of more than 100 seminars will describe new equipment, practices, and trends, including how to deal with changing labor demographics. The seminars will also show attendees how to integrate the latest technologies — from conveyors to carousels to sortation equipment — into their operations.

Diversions . . .
X-ray Tape

X-ray Tape Move over duct tape — Scotch tape may have set the record for unusual applications. Scientists at UCLA have found that unwinding a roll of Scotch tape creates X-rays that can produce clear images of their fingers. A phenomenon known as triboluminescence, which is not yet well understood, creates the X-rays. For one potential application, the tape would serve as a compact X-ray source that could be used for treating cancer.
