Sometimes you check, and you check, but the numbers just don't add up. Avoid the self-doubt and let the Internet check your math.
Space Age Control Inc., producers of miniature, all-environment position transducers, now offers on-line calculators to help engineers, technicians, and researchers see how changes in acceleration, temperature, and gravity affect position transducer performance. Teachers and students can also use the calculators to demonstrate in class the effects of changing physical conditions.
The three calculators offered at www.spaceagecontrol.com are: Sinusoidal Motion, for translating between the variables of displacement, velocity, frequency, and acceleration; Thermal Effect, which shows the effects of changes in temperature upon the length of material; and Cable Sag, which gives the amount of cable sag based on length and straightline distance.
All calculators offer a choice between Imperial and SI units, and they display the actual formula used, just in case that self-doubt creeps back.
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
