Global Lighting Technologies (GLT) has combined its edge-lit LED light guide technology with
its mass production capabilities to create a new troffer downlight that is slim, light, efficient, and can be
cost effectively manufactured in high volumes.
backlight utilizes advanced light extraction technologies to extract light
precisely where needed, providing bright, uniform light in a thinner form
factor without hot spots or dark areas. The LEDs are spaced along the edge of
the troffer assembly against the light guide to create an assembly measuring
23.5 x 23.5 inches, with a thickness of only 0.35 inches, and a weight of less
than 3 kg (6.6 lbs.).
More and more robots are becoming more autonomous all the time. Now Lockheed Martin has completed a demo mission with two completely autonomous robotic vehicles performing resupply, reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
