Government Tightens Energy Star Rules

Government Tightens Energy Star Rules The EPA will no longer allow U.S. manufacturers to self-certify products for energy efficiency to gain the Energy Star (RM) label, reports Environment News Service. Now, companies must submit complete lab reports and results for review and approval by EPA prior to labeling. The action comes after the Government Accountability Office conducted an investigation, using four bogus manufacturing firms that submitted 20 fictitious products with fake energy-savings claims for Energy Star status. Fifteen of the products gained certification. Are there "seal of approval" programs within your industry that need closer scrutiny?

Inspection on the Fly

Inspection on the Fly Using a portable 3D inspection solution engineers in machine shops can verify manufactured parts directly to CAD models. The tool combines a Hexagon Metrology 6-axis CMM with 3D model-based inspection software (see video). Doing away with 2D drawings, the rapid inspection process boosts productivity and eliminates the need to route products to fixed inspection stations.

SMT Boasts Vision Breakthroughs

SMT Boasts Vision Breakthroughs Parquda, a Swiss-designed surface-mount machine, offers four functions: a chip placer, a fine-pitch placer, a component placer, and a dispensing machine (see video). It has an innovative vision system that can take pictures of four components at once. Key is an illumination system that incorporates three independent light levels.

Software Shapes Therapy System

Software Shapes Therapy System For proton-based cancer treatment, clinicians need components that precisely shape radiation beams for each patient's procedure. Using PC-DMIS metrology software, Indiana University's Cyclotron Facility QC managers automatically generate coordinate measurement machine programs that determine where holes will be drilled in key components. The lab measures from 8 to 12 sets of components a day.

QC Helps Beat the Bug

QC Helps Beat the Bug  Most public health departments successfully handled the H1N1 threat thanks to good QC strategies. ASQ members provided techniques including cause-and-effect diagrams, affinity charts, interrelationship digraphs, and flowcharts for process mapping. Many departments also used PDSA (plan, document, study, act) to analyze early and institute needed changes.

A Standard for Standards

A Standard for Standards Not all standards are created equal says a brochure created by the International Standards Organization. ISO's standards-making procedures reflect the thinking of national standards institutions of 159 countries. But ISO is concerned that an increasing number of private standards create technical barriers to trade and confusion in the marketplace.

Test Lab Spotlights Photonics

Test Lab Spotlights Photonics Agilent and U-Cal San Diego set up a facility to test ultra-high-speed optical components and subsystems for uses including data centers and cloud computing. A suite of 40 Gbps test equipment will permit compliance testing and troubleshooting of micro- and nano-level devices. Plans include upgrading data rates to 100 Gbps and adding system and network analysis.

Instrument Forecasts Food Spoilage

Instrument Forecasts Food Spoilage With this analytical tool you can predict the shelf life of foods containing fats or oil before committing to volume processing. The device determines a product's oil stability by analyzing effluent air after a stream of purified air is passed through a sample. It can simultaneously process 32 samples at up to eight different temperatures ranging from 50 C to 220 C.

Keeping Environmental Damage at Bay

Keeping Environmental Damage at Bay Grounding planes to avoid damage from volcanic ash was justified, notes a UK TRaC lab engineering manager. He cites possible dangers: excess weight on the tail, pitting of cockpit windows, and engine failure. TRaC performs tests to predict damages to mechanical and electronic equipment from sand, dust, and other environmental hazards.

Wanted: Leaders Skilled in Lean

Wanted: Leaders Skilled in Lean As a tool to achieve continuous improvement, Lean is beating Six Sigma, according to a survey by the Avery Point executive recruitment firm. Appliance Manufacturer notes that this year's survey shows that corporate demand for Lean talent exceeded that for Six Sigma experts by almost 35%. That's a big switch from 2005, when requests for Six Sigma specialists outstripped Lean by 50%. More companies also want Six Sigma leaders to learn Lean skills.

Hats Off to Engineers

Hats Off to Engineers It's easy to overlook the countless ways that engineers have improved people's lives all over the world. In a series of playful "thank an engineer" video clips, Texas Instruments gives some examples. A recent video shows the frustrations of a couple getting lost on a car trip without GPS. Other clips bring home the benefits of such technologies as digital thermometers, high-speed internet, streaming video, MP3 players, and notebook computers.
