Machine alignment tool

  • 12-Feb-2009 08:31 EST

Pinpoint Capture software from Pinpoint Laser Systems is used with the firm's Microgage measuring and alignment products to record and monitor measuring and alignment results. The Windows-based application allows readings from one Microgage display and up to four remote receivers to be viewed on a computer and recorded at any time and then uploaded to other spreadsheet and statistical packages for analysis. The software features a large-screen format with easy-to-read measuring values and a choice of plots and graphs to follow the measuring results. Results can be recorded in manual mode with the user's notes as well as in automatic mode where readings from all receivers are recorded automatically over time. The Laser Microgage 2D features a laser transmitter that projects a focused laser beam, which is detected by a portable receiver; the receiver is connected to a handheld display that tells the operator where the receiver is located relative to the laser and its beam.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
Improvements to Airbus A320 passenger air nozzles could potentially contribute to program-wide benefits.
NASA has selected proposals for the creation of two multi-disciplinary, university-led Space Technology Research Institutes (STRIs) that will focus on the development of technologies critical to extending human presence deeper into our solar system. The new STRIs will bring together researchers from various disciplines and organizations to collaborate on the advancement of cutting-edge technologies in bio-manufacturing and space infrastructure.
