Morgan Technical Ceramics' ElectroCeramics
business in Bedford, OH announces its high-volume assembly capability for
piezoelectric assemblies and transducers for applications in a broad range of
markets, including medical, aerospace, industrial, oceanographic, commercial,
automotive and state-of-the-art scientific research. MTC utilizes CNC machining and automated
assembly equipment such as custom assembly fixturing, high-speed pick-and-place,
adhesives dispensing, high-volume polarization, electrode application, auto
calibration and serialized testing and data collection to meet its customers
high volume requirements.
MTC has extensive piezoelectric material
experience and an applications knowledge base of transducer design and
construction from prototypes to full production. Clients are able to shorten lead times and
expand their product capabilities by utilizing a single source for both a piezoelectric

Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team £100 to make (about $161 US).
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
