The EZ-mixVR variable ratio meter, mix and dispense system is a piston-based, software-driven, positive displacement system that offers accurate mixing without changing gears or other time-consuming mechanical adjustments. It features 0.1 ml repeatability, and users can achieve variable ratio dispensing in 1/100th increments from 1:1 to 20:1 through the keypad. It is designed to eliminate the process of waiting for piston pumps to refill with material from reservoirs. DTIC Dispensing Technologieshttp://rbi.ims.ca/4911-590
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
