This article details what soft robotics is, how it works, what it can be made of, and applications for it in the field. This includes current uses, and ways it may be useful in the future.
Water meters are used in all sectors of society - manufacturing, construction, weather detection, and at home. Here is a list of the types and uses of different water meters.
Telecommunication acronyms and terminology for AT&T. Learn how to speak the telephone language... or at least what some of the words are. Look, there are pictures, just look at the pictures.
This article explores miniaturization, wearable tech, sustainability, and new materials and technologies in the fashion industry to predict the future of what we wear.
Evaluating the impact of recycling metals can be little tricky. Keeping metal out of landfills cuts down on the speed with which we fill them up. It also prevents oxide seepage. Steel recycling saves on the amount of wood we use. It contributes to taxes, wages, and recycles evermore.
Lithium-ion battery technology has enabled the mobile technology revolution as well as the electric car movement. However, lithium is not the battery panacea that the world is looking for. There are many problems with this technology and researchers have turned their sights towards sodium instead.
Is generating electricity from 100% renewable energy sources impractical and unattainable? The answer is clearly no since there are already several countries that generate 100% of the electricity they use from renewable sources of energy. Many others are approaching the 100% renewable threshold.
What is nitriding? What are the benefits of nitriding metal? How does nitriding compare to other case hardening methods?
Multibeam antennas and multiband antennas are different types of RF hardware, though there is significant confusion on the matter. We'll explain the differences in the types of antennas and where they may overlap.
Alloys of lithium are used in many industries (especially batteries). Mixed it forms alloys and compounds. Its salts are medically used as mood changers , especially to treat forms of depression.
Anything you might find in a landfill that can be removed and reused is a source for urban miners. Around the world, a nascent industry has taken the world by storm. By reclaiming compounds and elements from products, buildings and waste, we can preserve resources and limit our carbon footprint.
This article considers how computer-aided design software has completely revolutionised the manufacturing industry. The article delves into the different types of cad software available and the huge benefits that it can bring to manufacturing companies large and small.
Moisture meters are calibrators that measure the amount of moisture within a solid or semisolid, like concrete or cheese. There are many different kinds for different kinds of work.
Plastics are ubiquitous and there are 3 types which are normally recyclable and identifiable by an imprinted code. There are at least 10 more plastics used in the home which you may not be aware of.
With the highest melting point of any metal, tungsten is strong at high temps. Its primary use is in the manufacture of alloys. Alloys made by melting and mixing two or more metals, and tungsten alloys are used in electrical devices and cutting tools when strength and heat resistance are imperative.
