Professor Dr. Thomas Graf shares his progressive thoughts on the future of lasers in industrial processing

Professor Dr. Thomas Graf shares his progressive thoughts on the future of lasers in industrial processing in the near future One of the most interesting, but also challenging, aspects of what has been proclaimed as the fourth industrial revolution is that mass personalization requires flexible and reconfigurable production systems.1 Actually, this was the first time that an industrial revolution—the so-called Industry 4.0—had been announced in advance, but the demand for a universally applicable and flexible production tool is an enormous chance for the laser. For decades, the laser has been known to be a very flexible tool for materials processing that can be used to fulfill a wide variety of manufacturing applications, which in fact cover the complete range of the manufacturing processes defined by the German industry standard DIN 8580. The DIN 8580 groups the processes into molding, forming, separating, joining, coating, and changing the material properties (FIGURE 1). In his 1992 textbook, Helmut Hügel already put it this way: “The importance of the laser for industrial manufacturing above all lies in its extraordinary flexibility with regard to the various machining proces...

At the AMA’s Annual General Meeting, held during its national conference in Brisbane, Dr Bav Manoharan,

At the AMA’s Annual General Meeting, held during its national conference in Brisbane, Dr Bav Manoharan, director at the AMA and its Queensland branch, moved “That Federal Council and AMA Federal President call for an urgent and immediate end to the trial of prescribing of antibiotics, paediatric vaccinations and oral contraceptives by community pharmacists in Queensland and Nationally, and to call for the Queensland Health Minister to adhere to national processes as occurring under the direction of COAG”. Since it was announced, the Queensland trial has attracted significant criticism from doctors, particularly at the leadership level of the AMA and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. Pharmacy Guild of Australia Queensland branch president Trent Twomey expressed disappointment in the motion. “I think this just shows the true colours of the AMA has being nothing more, and nothing less, than a cheap lobby group rather than a professional body,” he told the AJP. “I’d like to ask the AMA lobby to park their biases, park their self-interest and work with the Guild and both sides of politics – because this has bipartisan support, and the pharmacy workforce is ready ...

After reviewing different parameters of the client’s requirement, the team of Magento developers came up with

After reviewing different parameters of the client’s requirement, the team of Magento developers came up with this innovation that is mainly related to item blocks featuring distinctive products or product mixes that can be programmed in various ways. For instance, items in the featured product block may contain a product name, custom photo, cost, and ratings as well as an “Add to Cart” button. The extension can display the products in blocks according to top vendors, a top product, and sorted by dates. At long last, Featured Product blocks can be incorporated into the sidebars or main content area of your website. The Key features included were: • Create an infinite number of blocks. • Insert blocks via CMS, layout, and widgets. • Select product pictures to display in the block. • Disable the extension when not in use. With all these aforementioned intuitive functionalities, the Magento extension turns out to be a robust thing offering the clients a leg up on the competition. On and all, the extension was designed and developed to cover almost all the needs of web owners.

Stronger than aluminum, a heavily altered wood cools passively

Most of our building practices aren’t especially sustainable. Concrete production is a major source of carbon emissions, and steel production is very resource intensive. Once completed, heating and cooling buildings becomes a major energy sink. There are various ideas on how to handle each of these issues, like variations on concrete’s chemical formula or passive cooling schemes. But now, a large team of US researchers has found a single solution that appears to manage everything using a sustainable material that both reflects sunlight and radiates away excess heat. The miracle material? Wood. Or a form of wood that has been treated to remove one of its two main components. Wood is mostly a composite of two polymers. One of these, cellulose, is made by linking sugars together into long chains. That cellulose is mixed with a polymer called lignin, which is not really a single polymer. The precise chemical formula of its starting material can vary among species, and it typically contains multiple places where chemical bonds can form, turning the polymer into a chaotic but extremely robust mesh. Lignin creates a lot of problems for biofuels production, since its variabi...

EK Performance 280 and 360 Liquid Cooling Kit Review

Liquid cooling can be a touchy subject among computer enthusiasts. While air coolers generally offer better performance value for most desktops, some space-constrained cases and hot CPUs need the extra cooling capacity that liquid affords. Sealed all-in-one liquid coolers are the most commonly used because they are more affordable and convenient. While open-loop setups offer better cooling and customization, they’re also costlier and more complex. Today I look at two kits from EK that seek to alleviate those problems. When getting an air or AIO liquid cooler, you only need to check that it fits inside your case and can mount to your CPU socket. Shopping for a custom loop requires you to answer a bevy of additional questions. Is the pump strong enough for the entire loop? Did you get the right size tubing? Did you get the right size fittings for that tubing? Do the fans have enough static pressure to deal with the radiator? Even if all your parts work together, it’s still not uncommon to forget one or two things when you place the order (maybe clamps for the barb fittings or a mounting bracket for a reservoir). If you could add one SKU to your digital shopping cart th...
