Pomalux(reg) LM laser-markable rod and sheet is made from a Ticona Celcon(reg) acetal copolymer resin and produces parts that can be inscribed with clear, consistent, and precise laser markings. A software-driven technology, laser marking provides a method for permanently inscribing patterns from bar codes and automatic serialization to company logos and complicated graphic elements. The combination of Pomalux LM and laser marking produces on-line marking cycles, indelibility, enhanced capability to inscribe in recessed or other difficult-to-access locations, and elimination of volatile compounds.
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.
