Synthetic instrumentation advances with RF down converter
Military suppliers are moving toward synthetic instruments that replace existing test and measurement equipment with flexible modular architectures. BAE Systems and Phase Matrix have completed a down converter to handle RF capabilities in a small form factor.
FedEx fights fires with foam
Fires started by faulty lithium batteries are a major concern for air freight haulers such as Federal Express, which teamed up with Ventura Aerospace to develop an electronics system that smothers fires with foam that lasts up to four hours.
A fascination with fasteners
Boeing has cited a worldwide shortage of aerospace fasteners as one reason it has delayed the flight-test program of its 787, which is now in development. One of the main reasons there are shortages today is fastener manufacturers were forced to consolidate their operations earlier in the decade when orders dried up during the last downturn.
MAG advances machining
MAG had no shortage of new or updated products to display at the Westec show in Los Angeles, including the Freedom NC200 Infimatic control.
Going green to stay in the black
Trimming electricity usage is critical for manufacturing operations that want to reduce their carbon footprint. These savings come from steps as simple as changing light bulbs to building new facilities that eliminate the waste that comes when energy generation creates heat. ...
