Built for low to medium-volume electrical production environments, this instrument combines seven different electrical safety tests into one compact unit. It can be used both as a simple manual tester or with varying degrees of automatic test sequencing. It has on-screen user instructions and a QWERT keypad, and can perform insulation resistance, flash/hipot, earth/ground bond, leakage, short-to-line and run/load tests. They are all individually user selectable, and results from up to 6,000 tests can be stored in the instrument's internal memory. It includes special safety interlocks and protection routines, and there are a number of available test station accessories, including warning beacons. There is also an optional safety label printer available to make test bags, labels and test reports.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
