This takes my thoughts immediately to ESD grounded workstations.Whenever working with developing prototypes for any electronic computing device, our labs were always monitored by our internal ESD cops – the QA safety team that insured that all benches had that light-blue anti static pad as the work-surface, and that any user at the station had the mandatory wrist-straps and ankle grounds.Even if a manager wandered down into the lab to check on the daily progress, they were in violation (with the ESD cops) if they reached into the prototype set-up without first grounding themselves with a strap.While I realize that ESD safety precautions are more prevalent today than they were when the SPARC station was introduced about 20+ years ago, I'm wondering if the author of the article had ESD cops at his facility-?
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
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
