A new formulation technology from M.A. Hanna Color combines laser marking with a super phosphorescence additive science. The proprietary system will enable automakers to design low-cost alternatives to back-lit or illuminated control and instrument panels. In addition, say company researchers, the system allows easy marking for components that traditionally have been difficult to illuminate. Hanna FX Nite Brite requires a minimum ambient light exposure to obtain 10 hrs of high-quality illumination. With the addition of a custom colorant into the base resin of a plastic component, the finished molded part can be laser marked with FastMARK(TM) laser marking. M.A. Hanna Co.: Product Code 4225
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
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.
