Chevron Phillips Chemical has introduced a new polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) for applications needing an extra measure of mechanical strength, toughness and weld line integrity. Ryton® R-4-260 PPS, a 40 percent glass-filled grade, exhibits 50 percent less micro-flash than current high-elongation PPS compounds. It has a tensile strength above 25,000 psi and a flexural strength of 34,000 psi. Applications include desktop and laptop hard disk drive connectors, and other electronic hard drive connectors used in the consumer electronics digital video recorder (DVR) and gaming markets.

The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
