Have we solved the nanomaterials problem?

Nick Hall for 3D Printing Industry:   Researchers at Virginia Tech have potentially cracked a conundrum that has tormented the scientific community and created a viable method to produce usable metallic nanomaterials. Of course, 3D printing provided the answer and this really could change the world we live in. Nanostructures have the capacity to disrupt a number of industries and they can revolutionize material science, medicine and battery technology to name just a few. If we can truly harness nanomaterials then almost every facet of modern life will change, from the clothes we wear to our water filtration system. It’s one of those breakthroughs that really could change everything. So the potential is immense, but nanostructures are complex to produce in usable form. Scaling them up to a workable size has caused issues with the structural integrity, performance and consistency. Outside of the theoretical setting, they have largely frustrated us.   Cont'd...

Using Silicon in Lithium Ion Batteries to Increase Capacity

We have demonstrated the ability to electrospin liquid CHS into silicon nanowires that when blended with carbon lead to performance comparable to that achieved by CVD grown silicon nanowires but at reduced cost and simplified scaling.

Turck Introduces the TBPN Hybrid Safety Block I/O Module

Turck introduces the TBPN safety block I/O module, which is the first block I/O module to combine both standard and safety inputs/outputs in a single device.

Building a sustainable manufacturing strategy

It will come as a surprise to many people that the UK is currently the 11th largest manufacturing country in the world, just after India. The manufacturing industry contributes £6.7tr to the global economy and it makes up 11 per cent of UK Gross Value Added (GVA) output. Despite this, recent innovations in electronics, thin battery technology and design engineering have stumped many business leaders. Here Prabhjit Singh, production manager at Accutronics looks at how to build a sustainable manufacturing strategy.
