A Lesson In Lithium-Ion Volatility
DNTV 10/24/2014 4 comments During a teardown of the iPad Air and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Show in Schaumburg, Ill, an engineer showed this "inflammatory" video about the dangers of maliciously mishandling lithium-ion batteries. (The video originally appeared on YouTube.)
Low-Profile Retaining Rings
DNTV 6/19/2014 2 comments Smalley Hoopster® Rings fit into shallower grooves than regular snap rings or retaining rings. The low profile, precision circularity, and small radial size allow Hoopsters to be unobtrusive components. Stocked from 3/8"-3" in carbon and stainless steel.

Lomold Moulding Technology
DNTV 11/24/2010 Post a comment A new all-plastic pallet design from Lomold features a high-strength system whose top and bottom decks and optional components snap-fit into place and can be removed when not needed.
With erupting concern over police brutality, law enforcement agencies are turning to body-worn cameras to collect evidence and protect police and suspects. But how do they work? And are they even really effective?
A half century ago, cars were still built by people, not robots. Even on some of the country’s longest assembly lines, human workers installed windows, doors, hoods, engines, windshields, and batteries, with no robotic aid.
DuPont's Hytrel elastomer long used in automotive applications has been used to improve the way marine mooring lines are connected to things like fish farms, oil & gas installations, buoys, and wave energy devices. The new bellow design of the Dynamic Tethers wave protection system acts like a shock absorber, reducing peak loads as much as 70%.
