Effects of Sterilization Methods on Specialty Optical Fibers and Terminations

Optical fibers and terminations were subjected to different sterilization techniques, including multiple autoclaving and treatments with peracetic acid, E-beam and UV radiation. Effects of different sterilization techniques on key optical and mechanical properties of the fibers and the terminations were revealed.

P2P Pumped Two Phase Cooling For High Heat Flux Applications

Thermal management solutions for powered applications are becoming more demanding. Traditional air-cooling and pumped single phase liquid cooling systems are becoming too large and heavy to address high heat load applications. Pumped Two Phase (P2P) Cooling solutions are now being more routinely applied for cooling high heat load, particularly when a high degree of isothermality is required. P2P cooling can be applied to all sectors from laser diodes to IGBTs to large scale system applications. This presentation will provide design engineers with a better understanding of the fundamentals of P2P cooling technologies, including new solutions and opportunities for implementation.

Vincent Systems Prosthetics Give Patients A New Feel For Life

The human hand is a biomechanical marvel and therefore hard to replace. Being ready to take up this challenge the Vincent Systems GmbH builds ultra-sophisticated prosthetic hands and partial hand systems since the founding in 2009. Ever since the Company attempts to mimic the range of the human hands natural capabilities by combining mechanical performance with an anatomically correct sized soft-shell design and an intuitive usage. This Webinar gives the audience a brief introduction to the daily work at the Vincent Systems GmbH and on how their products affect the life of prosthesis wearers. Precision, functionality and control have to go hand in hand with aesthetic design and natural feel. Vincent Systems masters all these challenges within PTC’s Creo 3D CAD system and the computing power of the HP Z420 workstation. You will get an overview about how these systems work and on how they are designed and build.

Metal Injection Molding - Process Overview

Proto Labs offers product developers up to 5,000+ stainless steel parts in less than three weeks with its metal injection molding (MIM) process. MIM transforms a fine metal powder encapsulated in a plastic binder into fully dense, net shape metal parts through a multi-step debinding and sintering process.

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.
