MATERIALS: Fujipoly introduces Sarcon® GR-Ae, an extremely soft Thermal Interface Silicone Gel Compound. Sarcon® GR-Ae is manufactured in sheet form and is designed to efficiently transfer heat from its source to a nearby heat sink. The unique physical properties of this material make it ideal for filling air gaps between delicate and uneven components.This high-performance gap filler compound offers a thermal conductivity of 1.3 W/m°K with a thermal resistance as low as .43 °Cin2/W. The gap filler pad is available in thicknesses ranging from 0.5 to 5.0mm. Sarcon® GR-Ae can be ordered in sheets up to 200 mm x 300 mm or die-cut to your exact application specifications.
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
