MATERIALS: Rheometer Services Inc. introduced a new line of drives and rheometers designed for laboratory scale polymer studies. This exciting new line of instruments is compatible with a wide range of industry standard mixers and extruders allowing existing sensors to be utilized with our new drives.
Applications include sample prep, flow behavior studies, fusion characteristics, polymer stability and processibility, scorch and cure of rubber, cure of thermosets, color stability, additive effect studies and much more.
The rs5000-S5 Torque Rheometer is the only instrument available to feature IsoThermal Torque Rheometry capability enabling advanced torque rheometer studies in the fields of polymer degradation kinetics, chemical cross linking, grafting, etc. with the optimum temperature consistently maintained throughout the run.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
