NASA Scanning Technology Creates 3D Maps of Surface Flaws

The High-Speed 3D Laser Scanner, developed by NASA’s Ames Research Center, creates a highly accurate 3D map of a surface for measuring "flaws" or deviations on that surface. It was originally designed to scan Space Shuttle Orbiter thermal tiles to accurately detect and measure the depth, area, and volume of flaws on the tiles. Scans are accomplished at high speed, with the most accurate scan taking less than 3 seconds. The 3D scanner is small, light, and portable. The instrument connects to a portable PC that displays a 3D map of the scanned surface while scanning, identifies flaws on the surface, and displays the flaw measurements.

Aqueous Critical Cleaning

Critical Cleaning is a process of removing undesirable contaminants from the surface of products or manufacturing equipment to a desired level where value or functionality is impacted by undesired residuals.  These Important factors in aqueous cleaning include what makes up an aqueous cleaner, the water, and how to choose an aqueous cleaner.  Once a detergent is chosen the 9 variables or B-A-T-H-O-C-A-R-D are reviewed to understand the variables that go into cleaning:1)    Before clean2)    Agitation3)    Time4)    Heat5)    Orientation6)    Chemistry (Concentration)7)    After-clean8)    Rinsing9)    Drying  Presenter: Jeff Phillips, Sr. Manager, Science & Marketing View the Tech Talk here.

Simplifying the Design of Automotive Motor Control Systems

Do you design electrical drives and motor control systems for automotive applications? If so, you know what a challenge it can be due to system complexity and the real-time nature of the application. Are you frustrated by the lack of good technical support provided by most silicon suppliers, the kind of support that could help get your motor control projects off the ground more quickly and with less stress?
