Welding System Perfect for Joining Dissimilar Materials

Posted on Categories Metals, TechnologyTags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Automation Alternatives recently introduced a fiber laser welding system called RubyLaser that is perfect for joining dissimilar materials. Its spot size is as small as 0.001 to 0.002 in. and fast weld speeds allow the system to deliver high power density. These characteristics make it perfect for welding together materials that are not identical.

Typical materials include stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, nitinol and more.

An Apple A Day…

Posted on Categories News, TechnologyTags , , , , , , ,

Is made from a 3-D printer??

Don’t worry, you won’t be eating these 3-D printed apples; rather, they are used to monitor the conditions in which your apples travel from farm to store.

These apples are specifically engineered to match the thermal response of real apples, meaning they will cool at a rate that is within 5% of real apples, compared to the 16% of water-filled fruit simulators. They can be placed among the real apples as they travel from cold stores to ripening facilities to stores.

Ultimately, the novel sensor system provides an improved method to identify any quality issues when transporting fruits. Creators hope to better pinpoint the location and reason for unexpected quality loss.

How do you like them apples?

Taking technology out of the lab and into the world, ETH Zurich is working on the world’s first house made with 3-D printers and robots.

The home will be three stories tall and is expected to be completed next year.

New 3-D Printed Robot Can Go Just About Anywhere

Posted on Categories News, TechnologyTags , , , , , ,

Engineers at the University of California have created a soft-legged robot whose body is made entirely from 3-D printing. The bases and caps of each leg are solid, metal components, while the length of the leg is soft and helps the robot adapt to move on nearly any terrain.

The hope for these robots is that they will be helpful in search and rescue missions, as well as observing endangered species without disturbing their natural habitat.

What is so cool about this new technology is the ability for a 3-D printer to produce multiple types of material. Shifting from hard material to soft with no gap between them makes the robot more durable and efficient.

Check out the robot in action here.

U.S. Steel Produces Innovative Technology For Energy Industry

Posted on Categories News, TechnologyTags , , , , , , ,

This past Monday, U.S. Steel Tublar Products unveiled an exciting new innovation and in energy industry that is sure to make a major impact on the oil industry.

The technology that they introduced is still patent pending, but in it’s simplest definition, the new technology innovates the way oil and gas line connections are made. The joints are now sealed in a way that improves torque, can withstand higher pressure and improves the overall safety of the gas line.

U.S. Steel’s new technology found a way to innovate the metal to metal connection of the joints and pipelines. What was a major point of vulnerability, is now a point of durability.

“The introduction of this new product continues U. S. Steel’s transformation as we provide highly engineered products to our customers in the oil and gas market.”

Said Mario Longhi, president and CEO of U.S. Steel
