  • 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
    . Microstructural comparison of high carbon standard ingot bar to the consolidated powder CCM Plus. Top micrograph is CCM Plus bar stock as-received. The bottom micrograph is CCM Plus that has been forged into a hip stem. CCM PLUS FORGED & SINTERED (100X) Micrographs show the dramatic difference in grain
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Computer Power User Article - A Bluetooth Bonanza
    of making this functionality available to anyone. True, the HS-700's audio quality is average at best, but the device does clock in at just under three hours of nonstop runtime, and its half-ounce weight makes it comfortable to wear for prolonged periods. Anycom says its HS-880 unit (which wasn't
  • 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
  • Positioning in nanometers
    Air bearings and piezo actuators revolutionize the road to super-fine, super-fast movements. Just a few years ago, systems able to position to within 10 min. (10 millionths of an inch) were considered state of the art. Today, the bar has been raised. Companies routinely require the ability
  • Tips for no-melt machining
    use temperature of 500 F along with high strength, stiffness, and chemical inertness the machinable PI helps ensure that the rings stand up to the ravages of wafer processing. Called Duratron XP, the material is a ductile PI and, as such, resists chipping, breakage, and tool wear during machining
