Halogen lamp sockets are manufactured with high-temperature materials such as ceramic, mica, Teflon, or silicone-insulated wire; and nickel- or silver-plated contacts. Guaranteed temperature ratings exceed 230C. Basic construction is 17 mm in diameter and 9.5 mm in depth. Type H9941 provides mounting for G-4 and MR11 lamp types. These lamp types are normally rated at 6 or 12V and less than 50W. Type H912 accommodates the larger G6.35 and MR16 lamps with ratings of 12 or 24V and exceeding 50W.

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.
