New wireless test system

Alfamation has launched a new test system for manufacturing quality control of in-car wireless chargers. The new tester supports different charging standards, including Qi, PMA and more, as well as Near Field Communications (NFC). Due to its architecture, the new in-line tester can perform parallel, or multi-site, functional tests of up to four devices at

New microthermal technology for gas metering

New environmentally friendly technologies, such as power-to-gas and biogas production systems, will change requirements for the entire natural gas industry, including gas metering. Due to these trends, future gas metering will be confronted with new mixtures of natural gas, including those that contain significant amounts of non-conventional fuel gases such as hydrogen or carbon dioxide.

New laser scanner offers up to 1km range

Leica Geosystems has launched the Leica ScanStation P50, its fastest and safest long-range 3D laser scanner, and the newest member of the P-Series 3D terrestrial laser scanner range. The new ScanStation P50 combines all the well-known features of the P40 plus a longer-range scanning capability of more than 1 kilometre. Increasing user flexibility to offer

Increased security for digital manufacturing

Renishaw and Identify3D have announced a collaboration to offer an end-to-end, secure digital manufacturing process. Identify3D will provide data protection coupled with contractual and manufacturing licensing from design to production on Renishaw additive manufacturing (AM) systems. By choosing to secure all digital data in the engineering phase, the technology enables users of Renishaw systems to

ANSYS to Acquire 3D Printing Simulation Tech Amid Week of CAE Additive Manufacturing News

Welcome to 3D Printing Simulation Week, where Stratasys gets 3D printing simulation software and MSC Software’s Simufact gets 3D printing simulation software, and now that ANSYS gets 3D printing simulation software, “Everybody gets 3D printing simulation software!” This latest computer-aided engineering (CAE) additive manufacturing announcement

Sustainable growth in Uruguay

The German plant manufacturer Weltec Biopower recently signed the contract for a biogas plant extension of the milk powder producer Estancias del Lago (EDL) in Uruguay. From late 2018, the plant with its eight digesters will generate a rated thermal input of more than 6 Megawatt from cattle manure and fodder leftovers. The company will use

New low pass and bandpass SMA coaxial filters

Fairview Microwave has introduced a new series of low pass and bandpass filters for use with multiple popular frequency bands. Fairview’s 13 new SMA coaxial filters consist of seven bandpass filters and six low pass filters. The bandpass filters were developed for use in various applications including GPS, ISM, RFID and Wi-Fi systems and operate

Better voxel control

Stratasys has introduced GrabCAD Voxel Print, a new software solution for its J750 3D printing solution which provides true voxel level control during the design and 3D printing process. Manipulating microscopic voxels, which are the building blocks of 3D printing, enables users to achieve 3D printed effects and properties not possible before. This, combined with

Latest FloEFD Release Aims to Supercharge the Design Process

Mentor Graphics, who was acquired by Siemens earlier this year, has announced the latest release of its computerized fluid dynamics (CFD) program, FloEFD. Mentor hopes that the latest release will encourage engineers to integrate CFD into their design process in the early stages, allowing the full capability of fluid simulation to be experienced. FloEFD integrates
