EP30D-14 optically clear, room-temperature curing two-component urethane elastomer is for bonding, sealing, coating, potting, and encapsulation applications. EP30D-14 cures at room temperatures or more rapidly at elevated temperatures. The elastomer can be used over a -60 to 250F temperature range and is 100% reactive, containing no solvents or dilutants. The compound cures with minimal shrinkage and is an electrical insulator.
A new service lets engineers and orthopedic surgeons design and 3D print highly accurate, patient-specific, orthopedic medical implants made of metal -- without owning a 3D printer. Using free, downloadable software, users can import ASCII and binary .STL files, design the implant, and send an encrypted design file to a third-party manufacturer.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
