Peter Hagelstein, an MIT electrical engineering professor, found a better way of getting electricity from waste heat. He combines thermoelectrics and thermionics in a device that converts about 17% of the heat it absorbs into electricity. And, he says, 20 to 25% is possible with improvements. For more information, contact Hagelstein at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (617) 253-0899.
This slideshow includes several versions of multi-materials machines, two different composites processes including one at microscale, and two vastly different metals processes. Potential game-changers down the line include three microscale processes.
Hosted CAD or PDM systems is an emerging technology that offers many advantages over traditional on premise workstation CAD configurations and is making many companies rethink how to deliver future CAD software solutions.
