Self-mating parts - searching for symmetry
Proto Labs : 12 September, 2014  (Technical Article)
If a part has the potential to be split into symmetrical halves that can self-mate, Proto Labs recommends exploring that option early in the design process. It could save time and money. Generally speaking, if a manual assembly process that involves screws or ultrasonic welding can be turned into a quick self-mating part that does not compromise the final application, it’s probably worth looking into.
 
Printed optics for outdoor applications
Luxexcel : 12 September, 2014  (New Product)
A material update now makes it possible to order 3D printed functional optics from Luxexcel that are protected against UV and rapid temperature changes.
 
Transparent silver nanowire (AgNW) mesh electrode could replace brittle, rare ITO in silver cells
Olympus Europa Holding : 12 September, 2014  (Application Story)
Olympus has released a new application note detailing how the quick and non-destructive nature of the Olympus LEXT OLS4100 high-resolution analysis and stitching function capabilities has enhanced research into organic semiconductors and transparent electrodes.
 
INEMI project looks at automotive electronics reliability
ITRI (Internationsl Tin Research Institute) : 12 September, 2014  (Company News)
The drive for miniaturization coupled with automotive reliability expectations requires better understanding of material properties beyond standard bulk analysis. A new INEMI project will measure functional performance of small geometries through understanding a combination of material properties and interface properties. Gaps and recommendations will be identified and closed, where possible in the project timeframe.
 
PPS (polyphenylene sulphide) acquisition targets high performance markets
Solvay Specialty Polymers : 08 September, 2014  (Company News)
Solvay has signed an agreement to buy the Ryton PPS (polyphenylene sulphide) business from US-based petrochemical company Chevron Phillips for $220 million, expanding its offering of high-performance polymers and entering a solid growth market. Completion of the transaction is due in the fourth quarter of 2014 and subject to customary closing conditions.
 
Thermoplastic hydrogen storage vessels for fuel cell vehicles
Element Materials Technology : 08 September, 2014  (Company News)
Element Materials Technology is undertaking a major research project from its Hitchin (formerly MERL) UK laboratory on thermoplastic high-pressure hydrogen storage vessels for fuel cell vehicles. The HOST (Hydrogen-Optimization of Storage and Transfer) project is part-funded by the UK Technology Strategy Board (UK TSB) and awarded to a consortium of industry experts for developing hydrogen barrier thermoplastics. Element’s involvement with the HOST project, which has a total project budget of £1million, will last two years.
