Rolex Co.'s National Disc Spring Division says its new manufacturing procedure offers better control of the heat-treating process, critical to clutch spring function.
Clutch springs are typically required to provide constant loading over a large travel. In order to achieve that, conventional manufacturing methods require secondary processes and sorting. Rolex claims its proprietary method eliminates those secondary processes--specifically the need to decarbonize parts after heat treating, offering the additional benefit of cost savings.

By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
