Virtual Fit-Ups: How to Eliminate Rework with 3D Measurement

When replacing equipment or components achieving accurate measurements can be very challenging, especially if the unit is still being used. A solution to this challenge is implementing portable CMM’s, such as laser trackers, to conduct virtual fit-ups. Conducting virtual fit-ups (ensuring parts will fit mating parts) allows for early verification of critical dimensions during disassembly. Stop wasting time and money on rework and get it done right the first time!

The ANCER™ for Corrosion/Erosion Protection on Copper Micro Channel Coolers

Advanced Cooling Technologies (ACT) has developed a vapor deposited ANCER™ (Applied Nanoscale Corrosion Erosion Resistant) coating which has shown to provide superior protection of copper Micro Channel Coolers (MCCs) from catastrophic erosion/corrosion failure while cooling laser diodes. In this webinar, you will learn how corrosion and erosion effects can seriously impact MCC performance. You’ll learn how the thin, conformal ANCER™ coating offers a cost effective solution to extend the life of the copper microchannel coolers, even under relaxed DI water operating parameters. You will also see how the coating may be extended to provide corrosion resistance in other materials, such as aluminum. The webinar will be of value to thermal and mechanical engineers who are facing thermal and corrosion life challenges of their products.

Using Novel Flash Infrared Thermography Techniques and Software

Researchers at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) have developed an infrared (IR) flash thermography software program that is capable of detecting and characterizing anomalies, such as voids, cracks, and delamination, in nonmetallic structures with higher fidelity and sensitivity than other available techniques. Using an innovative IR contrast methodology, this software extracts normalized contrast versus time evolutions from flash thermography IR video data to accurately measure flaw depth, width, and diameter.

The Stealth E-Bike: Challenges in Developing the First Fully Integrated Drive System for E-Bikes

Developing an E-Bike that looks and drives like a conventional bike raises significant engineering challenges. Yet this is what the team at FAZUA has achieved with their proof-of-concept bike, using electrical assistance from their evation drive system. The drive system, containing all engine components like engine, electronics and battery, is placed in the downtube of a bike and can be removed by just one click at any time. Within seconds, an e-bike is converted into a lightweight bike as a bezel is put at its place. The next generation prototype, which will attain a pre-series status, is currently in development with the aid of CAD construction and simulation software.

SansEC: Electrical Sensors with No Electrical Connections

SansEC is a NASA-developed wireless sensor technology that is damage tolerant and requires no electrical connections. Unlike other sensors, a SansEC sensor can be designed for measurements unrelated to each other - like temperature and fluid level - and easily switch from one to another or do both simultaneously.

FMC and VPX Enable Rapid Development of Embedded Products

The VMEbus has been the standard of embedded system design for three decades. In the defense industry, for instance, it is typically used for such applications as signal acquisition and processing. As FPGA technology has advanced to feature improved analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog devices, new industry standards, better I/O, more memory, additional DSP options and more efficient power usage, a move to the next generation of VMEbus-based systems has been necessary to make the best use of those resources.
