California Codes Break Quake Claims

California Codes Break Quake Claims Government intervention is not always openly welcomed and can meet with very vocal opposition, especially in California. But after Southern California was recently shaken, rattled, and rolled by a 5.4 magnitude earthquake, building inspectors found very little evidence of any significant structural damage. Why is that? Because state government enforced building codes developed after the near catastrophic 6.7 magnitude Northridge quake over a decade ago vastly improved structural integrity, adding safety and security for the people living in this quake prone area and making the area a great example for potential quake epicenters worldwide.

Smart Control Breaks Vibe Convention

Smart Control Breaks Vibe Convention Active and passive vibration control are traditional means to reduce noise and vibration in systems. Now a patented approach of Vibration Control by Confinement (VCC) promises a range of applications from micro motor spindles to military transport aircraft. The approach diverts regions of energy to reduce the flow of noise and vibration.

Stopping Suprise Situations

Stopping Suprise Situations Today it's best to think about what could happen and implement security measures to stop even the unthinkable. The first line of defense for critical facilities, including embassies, nuclear plants, military bases, and corporate building, is barricade systems. See how one company is thriving in this new security marketplace.

Air Lift Assembly

Air Lift Assembly Moving massive machinery along assembly lines with overhead cranes or conveyor and rail systems can be awkward and dangerous. Obstacles include motion limiting supports and rails. A better alternative might be air casters and bearings that float heavy equipment down the line on a cushion of air with just the nudge of a hand.

Smooth Summer Stargazing

Smooth Summer Stargazing Summer is great for night-time viewing of the heavens. But when both amateur and professional astronomers try catching a glimpse of their favorite planet or galaxy from a deck, dock, or pier, they might experience unwanted vibrations. The solution is to add a helical isolator system to cushion fragile optics and to help them focus.
