Rapid Manufacturing: Not Just for Prototypes

Prototyping processes such as 3D printing, CNC machining and forms of injection molding have been known to produce great prototypes in low quantities. The perception of these processes known as Rapid Manufacturing is that they are only valuable for prototyping.

Hollow-Core Optical Fiber

Confining light to an air core fiber is not easily done using traditional guidance methods such as total internal reflection. In this presentation we demonstrate guidance in air using photonic band gap guidance and anti-resonant rings. Single-mode hollow-core optical fibers with large cores, resulting in low loss are shown. We also present the attenuation dependence in these fibers and how, using fibers that guide light in air, we are able extend the wavelength range of silica fibers out to the infra-red.

Designing for Stereolithography - 10 ways to Ready Your Part for Industrial 3D Printing

Designing for industrial-grade 3D printing has fewer considerations than traditional manufacturing processes; however, elements such as resolution, surface finish, feature size and build orientation can impact part performance.

Thermal Management: Heat Pipes, HiKTM Plates, and Vapor Chambers – Selection and Modeling

Heat pipes, high conductivity (HiK™) plates, and vapor chambers are two phase technologies that are often considered for electronics cooling.  All three devices rely on the very high evaporation and condensation coefficients of two phase fluids to reduce the ΔT between the source and the sink for a given power.  When properly engineered for power and mission duration, all of these devices provide passive, reliable cooling.

Smart Enclosures using RFID for Inventory Management

The NASA Johnson Space Center has developed a method for tracking collections of items in a smart container using radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags with a high level of read accuracy. Automating the tracking of a collection of items (particularly small items) represents a major industrial hurdle due to both tag size and cost. This technology promises to successfully address these hurdles. The smart enclosure innovation can track individual items in the smart containers or receptacles regardless of item placement. The NASA-developed patent-pending technology is available for licensing.
