Two-dimensional measurement tool

  • 01-Jun-2010 12:30 EDT

Heidenhain’s ND1200 QUADRA-CHEK metrology digital readout supports up to four axes and functions as a measuring computer for 2-D geometries. The device, which contains a dark gray faceplate, is suited for optical comparators, measuring microscopes, and 2-D measuring machines. An operator guidance system provides information about the various functions. A flat-panel LCD screen displays values, dialogs and inputs, graphics functions, and soft keys. Predefined features include point, line, and circle; a Measure Magic function selects the feature that best matches the shape implied by the points probed. Optional edge detection allows users to capture measurement points automatically via an optical edge detector.

The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
NRL scientists have demonstrated metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction 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.
Researchers from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory's Optical Sciences Division and Material Science Division have detected acoustic emissions from cracks in riveted lap joints using a distributed feedback fiber laser-acoustic emission sensor.
