The company has introduced a four-channel entry-level version of the LMS Pimento. It is designed to combine the power of a professional portable system with a more affordable price. It covers a range of noise and vibration applications, including general-purpose data acquisition and specific modules for rotating machinery analysis. The product is ideal for manufacturers who want to quantify the noise or vibration performance of their products, and then analyze the characteristics of the products with the dynamic behavior of their designs.

Designed to increase productivity and cut costs in the critical phase of aircraft development, the Best of Breed Structure Engineering solution reportedly integrates the activities and processes required to design and manufacture structural aircraft parts and assemblies. The relational design capabilities enable early communication between design, manufacturing, and service engineering teams. It also allows manufacturers to constantly monitor performance and cost implications of design decisions. Dassault Systemeshttp://rbi.ims.ca/3847-605
SWAN, which is compatible with industry-standard design frameworks, was created to bring a new level of analysis to ultra-deep submicron CMOS technologies. It eliminates a critical barrier in the design of mixed-signal systems-on-chip by offering a means to model and analyze the substrate-noise generation. The product consists of two parts: a standard-cell library characterization and a substrate-noise waveform computation. IMEChttp://rbi.ims.ca/3847-606
From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
ABI Research, a firm based in the UK that specializes in analyzing global connectivity and other emerging technologies, estimates there will be 40.9 billion active wirelessly interconnected “things” by 2020. The driving force is the usual suspect: the Internet of Things.
Just in time for Earth Day, chemicals leader Bayer MaterialScience reported from the UTECH Europe 2015 polyurethane show on programs and applications using its materials to help reduce energy usage. The company also gave an update on its CO2-based PU as that eco-friendly material comes closer to production.
Solar and wind energy are becoming more viable as a source of energy on the electric grid. For decades, the major drawback to solar and wind was that they’re temperamental. A cloudy day kills solar and a still day renders the wind turbines useless. Automation tools, however, are providing a path to help these renewables become practical.
In honor of Earth Day, the National Security Agency has launched the STEM Recycling Challenge in Maryland schools to encourage kids to think about where the garbage they throw out every day actually goes. The agency has also introduced “Dunk,” a muscular blue cartoon recycling bin wearing shorts and sneakers.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
