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.
According to a study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, one of the factors in the collapse of the original World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, was the reduction in the yield strength of the steel reinforcement as a result of the high temperatures of the fire and the loss of thermal insulation.
Robots are getting more agile and automation systems are becoming more complex. Yet the most impressive development in robotics and automation is increased intelligence. Machines in automation are increasingly able to analyze huge amounts of data. They are often able to see, speak, even imitate patterns of human thinking. Researchers at European Automation
call this deep learning.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
