Filament winding, reinvented : CompositesWorld

Robots and digital technology deliver speed plus larger, more complex parts, while generative 3D winding obviates mandrels and waste for automotive applications. This robotic gripper for automotive assembly weighs 50% of a standard aluminum version. It is made with the FibreTEC3D process, which winds carbon fiber tow impregnated with epoxy around aluminum pins with zero waste. Murata Machinery’s MFW-48-1200 simultaneously winds 48 to 180 fibers from its creel onto a rotating mandrel in the liner unit, which moves horizontally in and out of the adaptive nozzle. An early adopter of robotic filament winding, MF Tech has developed an unconventional system where the rotating mandrel is manipulated past a stationary fiber feed (creel and orange and black tower at right). Comprising two counter-rotating fiber application rings moved by a robot arm along the part being wound, Cygnet’s 3D winder was designed for scalable, speedy production of complex shapes, able to wind 24K or 48K carbon fiber at a rate of 1 kg/min. Aluminum-framed robotic grippers used in auto assembly, shown here as yellow structures, can be lighter with components made by 3D winding carbon fiber and epoxy. Developed ...

Street lights in Awapuni in Palmerston North were slow starting up on Wednesday evening because of a photocell sensor issue. Powerco network operations manager Phil Marsh said the lights did come on, but half an hour later than expected. Marsh said Powerco relied on the public to report street light problems to the Palmerston North City Council. The council could deal with maintenance problems, or refer to Powerco if it was a bigger issue. Light Oil Burner, Gas Burner, Diesel Burner, Oil Burners – Renaissance,http://www.eburn-burner.com/

The DN-FE-16T crimping tool has a rotatable die and a trapezoidal crimp profile. The crimper is self-adjusting for use with insulated and non-insulated wire ferrules in sizes from 26 to 8 AWG. The crimp head is rotatable to accommodate crimping from the side or from the front. This new crimper is identical to AutomationDirect’s two existing self-adjusting crimpers, other than having the rotatable die and trapezoidal crimp profile. The crimpers are lightweight, compact and comfortable for crimping a wide range of insulated and non-insulated ferrules, crimping terminals, and connectors. DN-FE series crimpers feature controlled-cycle ratchet action (with emergency release) to ensure crimps are completed according to specification every time. The crimpers are well balanced to avoid slipping and provide a low handle force for larger ferrule sizes. The compact, light-weight design provides easy access within confined spaces; a non-slip grip pad allows applying pressure against a surface for more crimp force.

Murder-accused bought acid-proof boots after uncle’s disappearance, trial hears

A Brisbane man accused of murder purchased protective clothing including goggles, a mask, gloves and boots to “work with acids” a week after his uncle disappeared, a court has heard. Robert James Wagner pleaded not guilty at the beginning of his Supreme Court trial in Brisbane to murdering his uncle Gerhard Wagner in January 1999. The court heard neither his body or motorbike has ever been found, and that his death was financially motivated because he held significant assets. Prosecutor Phil McCarthy said Robert Wagner was in a “precarious financial position” at the time of his uncle’s disappearance. He said an employee from a hardware store would give evidence about a customer who purchased protective clothing about a week later. “The customer he was dealing with specifically indicated that he was working with acids and he was working with acids to clean a garage floor,” Mr McCarthy said in his opening address. “Together through this trial we will learn about the precarious financial position of the defendant at that time. The prosecution told the jury it would hear evidence that Robert Wagner told a friend police had accused him...

71 Highly-Rated Products On Amazon That Are Extremely Clever & Affordable

I’ll admit it — I have an addiction to shopping. And while it’s not the worst problem in the world to have, my bank account isn’t happy. In fact, if my bank account could talk, it would probably be calling for a lighthearted (but justifiable) intervention. In an attempt to rectify my habits, I’ve decided that it’s in my best interest to limit my shopping to the most clever and affordable products on Amazon. Truth be told, it’s not that bad of a compromise. Instead of buying $40 delivery sushi on a Wednesday, I’ll grab a produce-saving container that helps keep my vegetables fresh. That’s an easy way to save myself some money over time, right? And rather than purchase yet another pair of leggings that I don’t actually need, I’ll put that money towards a portable espresso maker. Okay: I don’t even drink coffee, but I know it’ll make a great last-minute gift idea for my boyfriend — and he’ll actually use it. Finally, I can’t expect you to break your bank if I’m trying to glue mine back together. So whether you’re just in the mood to browse, or you’re looking for a splatter guard th...

From talking computers to reusable rockets, here are our picks for the products that had the

From talking computers to reusable rockets, here are our picks for the products that had the most impact in the last 10 years. There’s no shortage of products that are hailed by their creators as “revolutionary” or “totally transformative” upon launch. Sure, every company that births a new gadget into the world wants to believe that its innovative design and fancy new manufacturing process is going to profoundly change the way we experience technology in the future. But of course they think this way—it sometimes actually happens. Here are 10 instances from the years between 2010 and 2019 when it actually did happen. These are the products that arrived with a splash and grew into a typhoon. Since they span various industries, their impacts can’t be measured on the same scale. So, it doesn’t make sense to us to rank the products from one to 10. Instead, we’re presenting them chronologically. Here are the 10 technology products that defined this decade. The private messaging service technically launched in November of 2009, but that’s close enough—and its impact on the decade that followed was significant enough to warrant inclu...

Summer of Science: Making moves with Static Electricity

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – From lightning strikes to light bulbs, it’s always exciting to see electricity at work. Even regular tasks like combing your hair, taking off a blanket or sweater can cause a charge. This is also known as static electricity created by an unbalance of charges between two objects. Here are 3 simple ways to show this electricity with a few items you have laying around the house. Step 2: Tilt the can on it’s side. Hold the PVC pipe an inch or two away from the can and watch the attraction forces at work. Why it works: When you rub the PVC pipe on the fuzzy material, electrons build up a negative charge on the pipe. These electrons can then pull light and positively charged objects! Step 3: Drop the ring over the PVC pipe. Balance the pipe and keep the ring floating as long as you can! Why it works: While opposite charges attract, similar forces repel! Since both the pipe and plastic are negatively charged, they don’t want to be next to each other and the forces will force the plastic ring to float since it is so light. Why it works: The water flowing out has a positive charge, which is drawn to the negatively charged pipe. Sean Bailey comes to the WM...
