Lighting Science Group Corp., an LED lighting producer, and Tech Lighting, a company that produces light fixtures for architects and interior designers, have launched a full line of LED-based lighting products. Lighting Science will integrate its LED technology into Tech Lightings’ fixtures for both residential and commercial use. Tech Lighting teamed with Lighting Science in order to add LEDs to its product mix. “We partnered with Lighting Science because we felt they could lead us to an LED lighting system that meets our stringent requirements,” says Steve Harriott, president of Encompass Lighting Group, the parent company of Tech Lighting.
LEDs are growing in popularity due to their low energy consumption. LEDs consume up to 80 percent less energy than traditional incandescent lights and 50 percent less than fluorescent lighting.
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
