Conquering metal fatigue

Conquering metal fatigue
Metal fatigue can lead to abrupt and sometimes catastrophic failures in parts that undergo repeated loading, or stress. It’s a major cause of failure in structural components of everything from aircraft and spacecraft to bridges and powerplants. As a result, such structures are typically built with wide safety margins that add to costs. Now, a team of researchers at MIT and in Japan and Germany has found a way to greatly reduce the effects of fatigue by incorporating a laminated nanostructure into the steel.

Curtain nozzle enhances coating processes

Curtain nozzle enhances coating processes
The Rehm Thermal Systems VarioFlex is now on sale at Altus Group. It has been developed for highly selective conformal coating processes. With the increase in miniature components, the requirement for smaller tolerances between areas to be lacquered becomes more difficult. To address this problem Rehm have added the VarioFlex curtain nozzle to their Protecto system.
