Trends in Stamping Progress

Senior Editor Ellen Kehoe

1/12/2015

Papers exploring the current state and future trends in a particular technology are perennially popular. Too, rediscovering such papers a few years later provides a timeline of the topic’s evolution. Such is the case with several papers on stamping, among the 95 related to this fabrication process in the SME Technical Paper library. Full Article

Tech Front: New Conductive Polymer Nanocomposites Hold Promise for Portable Devices



Edited by Senior Editors Patrick Waurzyniak and Ellen Kehoe

1/1/2015

Researchers at Drexel University (Philadelphia) have developed a strong, flexible, electrically conductive nanocomposite material that could be used to power future wearable energy storage devices. The conductive MXene-polymer nanocomposite material, created by researchers in Drexel’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering in collaboration with scientists at Dalian University of Technology in China, is very flexible yet has the strength to support many times its own weight.

12/10/2014

The collective topics of forming and fabricating are a heavyweight segment of the SME Technical Paper library, with nearly 800 papers from 1951 to present. Here’s an overview of the many areas covered in the fabrication and material forming case studies and tutorials in SME’s database. Full Article

Tech Front: Hybrid Semiconductor Phosphors Emerge for Low-Cost LED Lighting



Edited by Senior Editors Patrick Waurzyniak and Ellen Kehoe

12/1/2014

A team of researchers at Rutgers University (Piscataway, NJ) have designed new materials that could change the way household light bulbs are manufactured. With the phase-out of traditional incandescent light bulbs in the US and other countries, lighting manufacturers have looked for more energy-efficient lighting alternatives in the form of light-emitting diodes (LEDs).

Advanced Materials Always on the Edge



Senior Editor Ellen Kehoe

11/19/2014

As materials discoveries have advanced, techniques have evolved “to accelerate the transition from materials processing in a laboratory environment to fabrication techniques in a full scale production environment” and to show how “the advent of new materials and advances in the design of mechanical and electrical components are inextricably linked.” The paper stating this describes a knowledge-based approach to hot isostatic pressing.
