Overview of Liquid Silicone Rubber Molding - What is LSR?

At Proto Labs, product designers and engineers can get liquid silicone rubber (LSR) parts with the same quick-turn speeds as our thermoplastic injection-molding process. LSR parts are available in low volumes, typically from 25 to 5,000+ pieces, in three weeks or less. Why use LSR?

Data acquisition for rugged and harsh environments: SomatXR

The NEW SomatXR family of rugged data acquisition modules were designed to perform in the harshest of environments. These modules are IP65/IP67 rated, meaning they can withstand high pressure washing, shock up to 70g, and sustained vibrations of 10g. By combining proven signal conditioning from the QuantumX family together with the SoMat experience of reliably collecting data in harsh environments, the result is “SomatXR”. This short webinar will only scratch the surface of the capabilities and versatility that this family of products offer, touching upon the benefits of its modular design, superior signal conditioning, and easy to use “out of the box” Catman setup software.

Will we harvest energy with our own footsteps?

At the Center for Research in Advanced Materials (CIMAV), scientists "captured" the energy produced by people walking. The team designed a pill-shaped cylinder adapted to a shoe in order to store the mechanical-vibrational energy that the person generates when walking. Similarly, the London-based company Pavegen produces a technology that harvests mechanical energy of walking feet and converts it to electrical energy via a special floor tile. Both ideas perhaps could lead to cities using the alternative, piezoelectric solutions to create power when and where it is required. What do you think? Will we harvest energy with our own footsteps?
