The French Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique (CEA) has unveiled the first infrared images taken inside a nuclear fusion reactor. Taken at the CEA's TORE SUPRA tokamak reactor, the images show the temperature variations and integrity of components that face the plasma. The camera acquired images of critical components at 1.5 to 5 microns wavelength, where there is maximum energy in the infrared bands.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
