A software developed by aerospace engineers at the University of Buffalo (www.buffalo.edu) may help NASA detect air leaks at the International Space Station. Currently, locating a leak involves closing off modules individually. The software can correlate any disturbance with the geometric structure of the ISS, finding the location and size of the leak faster.
Most machine design engineers will survey existing component manufacturers for standard linear guide products, limiting what they can do with their designs. Using extruded aluminum profile guides can customize machine designs while shrinking the bill of materials.
Practically all electronic devices today contain metals that may
be coming from conflict-ravaged African countries. And political pressures will increasingly influence how these minerals are sourced and used in products.
