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
material provider and transducer manufacturer. This vertical integration of
materials and device knowledge at one location gives MTC a unique position in
For decades, engineers have worked to combat erosion by developing high-strength alloys, composites, and surface coatings. However, in a new paper, a team at Jilin University in China turned to one of the most deadly animals in the world for inspiration -- the yellow fat-backed scorpion.
Green energy is being billed as a way to make communities that are energy deprived more self-sustaining. So it makes sense to use natural materials to create devices that harvest this type of energy. That’s the idea behind a hybrid wind/solar energy harvester made of bamboo that’s been developed by UVM researchers.
