The 90-Line Beam Bender turns the reference beam from the Microgage 2000 and turns it exactly 90 degrees, making it ideal for squaring machinery and equipment, setting and adjusting parallel tracks and rails, aligning web rollers, idlers and wheels, checking gantry travel and position, monitoring and adjusting machine tools, and assisting in geometric alignment. The existing laser is square to the incoming beam within 0.0006 degrees, about 0.001 inches over an 8-ft distance. The aluminum block, anodized-coated housing allows several adjustments, which can rotate the existing beam through a full plane. It can be adjusted with a precision rotary mount, and positioning the 90-Line is easy with its 2-axis stage mount.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
