3V Fasteners Company Inc.'s externally threaded NAS and MS parts are manufactured from
traditional titanium alloy TI-6AL-4V and weigh 40 percent less than comparable
non-titanium hardware. They are useful for applications onboard commercial and
military aircraft from actuators to seat track assemblies, among many others.
3V titanium fasteners have a high strength-to-weight ratio,
high-temperature properties and stability, low density and corrosion
resistance. Parts can be manufactured to achieve 160 KSI tensile strength,
95KSI shear strength and demonstrate fatigue performance. The fasteners can be
provided in various head types (12 point, hex, flush, flat fillister, and pan)
and drives in thread sizes -04 to -8 and diameters .093 to .500. All can be
offered either uncoated or with aluminum or cadmium plate.
Artificially created metamaterials are already appearing in niche applications like electronics, communications, and defense, says a new report from Lux Research. How quickly they become mainstream depends on cost-effective manufacturing methods, which will include additive manufacturing.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
