Nye Lubricants has broken the polyalphaolefin (PAO) heat barrier with its new lubricant for automotive electrical connectors. Partnering with one of the world's leading connector manufactures to develop RheoTemp 761G and to ensure the new grease would meet real-world demands, the new lubricant emerged after 18 months of development. Though PAO remained the main wear-preventing ingredient, Alkylated naphthalene (AN), another synthetic hydrocarbon fluid, was added to produce a unique high-temperature synthetic hydrocarbon blend that gives RheoTemp 761G a continuous exposure heat ceiling of 175C, vs. 125C for a typical PAO. To make the grease "slippery" enough to satisfy insertion force standards, a proprietary blend of urea was used to thicken RheoTemp 761G. RheoTemp 761G tests show up to a 50 percent reduction in insertion force, as compared to NyoGel 760G, depending on connector type, size, and contact metal. RheoTemp 761G delivers all the qualities of NyoGel 760G, plus it reduces insertion force and performs at temperatures up 175C.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
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
