Hardness testers are used to check whether materials have the desired characteristics. These days, this is done in a fully automated, networked process.
As hybrids boast both a conventional engine and electric battery power, drivers get the best of both worlds. However, many aren't aware that the hybrid concept also extends to composite materials.
Design engineers have long searched for material coating methods to reduce friction. But, could the restructuring of newly found materials reduce friction on macroscopic scales? Here, Chris Johnson, managing director of EZO bearings supplier SMB Bearings, explains.
Manufacturers Replace Metal with Plastic to Reap Benefits of Plastic Resins While Maintaining Integrity of Metals
In today's fast-paced world there is an immense pressure on manufacturers to create a better, faster, stronger, cheaper product, and only those who are willing to adapt and innovate will survive. Manufacturers who've been dragging their heels (or worse, kicking & screaming) are now getting on-board with replacing metal parts with plastic ones.
Few industries have been impacted more by the advent of robotics than the manufacturing industry. In fact, the manufacturing industry was one of the first to implement robotics all the way back in 1961. Since then, science-fiction has become a normal part of life. Let's take a look at how robotics has become an indispensable asset to the manufacturing industry.
Innovative premium high-strength and high-performance stainless steel fasteners offer significant benefits - from product and asset infrastructure maintenance to total lifecycle costs - in many global industry sectors.
For many manufacturers, the benefits of composite materials are still being discovered. Combining the strength of glass or carbon fiber with the adaptability of a resin system that can be tailor made and cost-efficient to suit your exact technical requirements.
Manufacturing for the aerospace industry faced roadblocks in 2019, which slowed the speed of innovation. This article looks at the three biggest challenges engineers in the aerospace industry faced in 2019 and anticipated solutions in 2020.
Thermoset composites are formed using glass, carbon, or aramid fibers, which are then combined with resins such as polyesters, vinyl esters, epoxies, or phenolic resins.
Introducing Fiber, the first 3D printer with AFP continuous carbon fiber reinforcement using high temperature resistant PEEK and PEKK, designed to deliver industrial fiber performance on the desktop
Since 2014, there has been a surge in investments in companies engaging in the 3D printing of composites, with almost $250 million raised to date.
Bio-based products are those with components wholly or partially derived plants or renewable marine, agricultural or forest materials. These products help people who buy them to choose more sustainable options.
Carbide is composed of a combination of the elements of carbon and tungsten. When these two elements are mended together they create an alloy that is resistant to heat, scratches, pitting, and rust.
