Hitachi Powdered Metals (USA) Inc. began a gradual investment in industrial robots at their Greensburg, Ind. plant in 2005, driven by the emergence of a tightening labor market and the opportunity to produce an extremely fragile product.
Specialized metal alloys, ceramics, thermoplastics and other newer materials continue to aid aging populations
The advance of the novel coronavirus has had the entire world struggling with how to stay aware of and eliminate possible contamination—while still getting work done as efficiently as possible.
LIFT – Lightweight Innovations For Tomorrow, announced today it received a $5 million grant to expand the program to nine additional military bases across the country over the next three years.
Maker of a new alloy targets extremely corrosive environments and seawater applications
For untold millennia, the power of the sun has provided sustenance to mankind. On a late summer day, as the sun beat down on suburban Chicago, executives at JTEKT Toyoda Americas Corp. celebrated the launch of a new solar energy system that will help power the facility and sustain the environment for the future.
While water and fire tube boiler power plants may be considered archaic, they now power much of North America and will for some time, even as newer, cleaner, greener tech transitions into the mainstream and becomes practical.
Titanium aluminides possess many characteristics that make them highly attractive for high-temperature structural applications in automotive and aerospace industries. Their high specific strength, high-temperature stability and oxidation resistance relative to conventional titanium and nickel alloys make them beneficial for use in low-pressure turbine blades for aerospace engines, as well as turbochargers and exhaust values in automotive engines.
Manufacturers are always looking for ways to keep ahead of the competition. And with advancements in bonding technologies, they’ve been able to explore new ways in doing just that. Industrial-grade, double-sided acrylic foam tapes such as 3M™ VHB™ Tapes are increasingly being used in place of more traditional mechanical fasteners such as screws, rivets, bolts, and welds—in order to permanently bond components together.
