Accurate 3D flight tracking

Accurate 3D flight tracking
The SI Tracker2 system from Specialised Imaging provides reports which have been used to precisely correlate high-speed video data with 3D visualisation and measurement information.  Traditionally for free flight, ballistic and rocket flight applications such as Earth re-entry space vehicle development and ballistic trajectory characterisation - engineers have had to use expensive Doppler radar equipment with complex software and on-board telemetry.

3D printed PEEK for high temperature applications

3D printed PEEK for high temperature applications
  Polyetheretherketon (PEEK) is considered one of the most powerful high-performance polymers, due to its mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance. Therefore, it is used as a replacement for materials such as steel, aluminium and other polymers.

3D printing colloidal crystals

3D printing colloidal crystals
MIT engineers have united the principles of self-assembly and 3D printing using a new technique, which they highlight today in the journal Advanced Materials. By their direct-write colloidal assembly process, the researchers can build centimeter-high crystals, each made from billions of individual colloids, defined as particles that are between 1nm and 1μm cross.

Using digital technologies to create spare parts

Using digital technologies to create spare parts
Digitalisation, realised by a specialist parts manufacturer such as Sulzer, is the key to rapid and precise repairs. Repairing critical equipment can be a time-consuming task, especially if it has been in service for a long time and original parts are difficult to source. In West Virginia, USA, Sulzer re-engineers and produces new casting parts for a wide range of rotating equipment using additive manufacturing technologies.

The next step: The 3D model goes into 3D printing

The next step: The 3D model goes into 3D printing
Double gears are an essential part of the everyday life of designers. When force, torque or speed in gears need to be changed, this task can only be performed if the geometry of the teeth is optimised. To enable manufacture of high performance geometrically complex gears such as these, time and money has to be invested.
