Laser-markable Celanex(reg) PBT thermoplastic polyester generates bold, permanent characters and graphics without printing. The high-resolution marking technology enables automotive and other designers to decorate and identify parts permanently. The laser-markable PBTs are available in three grades, and combine the mechanical properties of conventional Celanex polyesters with laser markability. The polyesters can tolerate up to 25% regrind without loss of mechanical properties or marking quality.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
