Features 9/30/2010 Post a comment As part of an industrial system design, high performance polyurethane wheels can be an attractive alternative material compared to rubber (solid or pneumatic), nylon or other polyurethanes to improve wheel performance and increase the safety and reliability of an application.
Patent Basics for Design Engineers
Features 9/29/2010 Post a comment As a design engineer, you work on the cutting edge of new technologies and new products. It is therefore important to be knowledgeable about not just patents, but other forms of intellectual property as well, such a trademarks, logos and brands.
Designing with Multi-axis Load Cell Sensors
Features 9/10/2010 Post a comment Custom projects often require customized sensors based on the environment in which they will be used. Thorough understanding of a project's mechanical, electrical and instrumentation requirements are key to making the right sensor choice.
Artificially created metamaterials are already appearing in niche applications like electronics, communications, and defense, says a new report from Lux Research. How quickly they become mainstream depends on cost-effective manufacturing methods, which will include additive manufacturing.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
