Owens Corning of Toledo, OH has introduced EnergyComplete™, a home insulation and air sealing system designed to combine savings, safety and affordability. "Buildings are the number one user of energy in the United States, consuming 40 percent of the country's energy resources — more energy than industry, more energy than transportation," says Karel Czanderna, group president of Owens Corning Building Materials.
EnergyComplete is designed to meet this challenge by providing consistent room-to-room temperature. The sealing aspects of the system are also designed to reduce the conditions that can lead to mold growth and provide a first line of defense against pests and insects.
For existing homes, the EnergyComplete system can be installed in attics, basements, crawl spaces, or during a home addition or remodeling project. Homeowners are also eligible for a 30-percent tax credit on the cost of the system for a maximum credit of $1,500 under the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act.
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
