Micro-Mini(TM) "Ratchet" connectors feature contact inserts that maintain side load strength, which exceeds current standards by five times. The vibration-resistant ratchet coupler design prevents loosening in severe, high-vibration applications while the epoxy-coated coupler passes the 500-hour salt-spray test per Mil-Std-202F for corrosion resistance. The watertight seal meets IP-67 and NEMA-6P ratings, and the easy-stripping PVC-jacketed cable and molded-to-cable connector junction are bonded for connector-to-cable reliability.

Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
