ALMA sheetmetal software – More profitable nesting for PALFINGER

ALMA sheetmetal software – More profitable nesting for PALFINGER

Every year PALFINGER processes around 20,000 tons of high-tensile steel panels to manufacture loading cranes and other loading and hoisting equipment. Off-cut optimisation is therefore a key concern shared by the whole management team in the company. Thanks to Alma’s act/cut software, the sheet metal plates to cut can be automatically nested in half of […]

IIoT gateways allow  communication with power grids

IIoT gateways allow  communication with power grids

A new family of Industrial IoT gateways for Smart Grid applications, the Anybus SG-gateways, enable communication between industrial applications and energy protocols. This communication is the very basis for the so called “Smart Grid” where power plants and energy equipment are interacting with industrial applications. The SG-gateways are yet another example of how HMS realizes […]

Smart chip tells you how healthy your battery is

In the picture: NTU Prof Rachid Yazami (left) holding his smart battery chip with research fellow Sohaib El Outmani holding a prototype testing device.   Scientists from Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) have developed a smart chip which can tell you how healthy is your battery and if it is safe for use. If the battery […]

PowerMILL chosen for new additive/subtractive service from Star Prototype

PowerMILL chosen for new additive/subtractive service from Star Prototype

Delcam’s PowerMILL CAM software has been chosen for a new service from Star Prototype that combines additive and subtractive manufacturing. The new service, which Star Prototype calls AddSub Manufacturing, combines metal 3D printing and five-axis CNC machining to deliver quickly complex, low-volume components that would previously have required the input of two separate bureaux. British-owned […]

Fujitsu launches manufacturing industry solution VPS

Fujitsu launches manufacturing industry solution  VPS

The software’s tracking functionality has now been enhanced so that changes to the original 3D CAD design data are reflected to the parts affected in VPS, which enables improved response to design changes and manufacturing process development. Viewing functions have also been enhanced, such as with the ability to use iOS devices to display process-flow […]

ArtCAM Pro allows the most complex designs to be modelled and machined

ArtCAM Pro allows the most complex designs to be modelled and machined

Delcam’s ArtCAM Pro CADCAM software for artistic applications has made it much easier to create complex designs, with a new approach called interactive distortion modelling. This allows users to distort either vectors or reliefs within ArtCAM models by bending or stretching the design, and to see the results in real time. Unlike most other CADCAM […]

The 1,300 tonne machine is one of the biggest of its type brought into […]

Energy conversion principle to double engine efficiency

Energy conversion principle to double engine efficiency

Professor Ken Naitoh of Waseda University’s Faculty of Science and Engineering (Department of Applied Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering, School of Fundamental Science and Engineering) and his associates have discovered a revolutionary energy conversion principle (new compressive combustion principle) able to yield stand-alone engines with double or higher the thermal efficiency potential of conventional engines, independent […]
