The DataMan 100 QL and 200 QL fixed-mount readers from Cognex offer reliable 1-D bar-code reading performance. The readers are easily field-upgraded to add 2-D data matrix and QR code reading capability if application needs change. The devices are roughly the same price as laser scanners yet provide significantly more reliable code reading performance, according to the company. They read codes that laser bar-code scanners fail to read, such as marks that are low in contrast, damaged, or distorted by severe perspective. The readers feature the 1DMax code reading algorithm, which also handles quiet zone violations that can occur when codes are printed close to a label’s edge.

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.

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.
