If the promise of nanotechnology is to be fulfilled, then research programs must leapfrog to new nanomanufacturing processes. That's the conclusion of a review of the current state of nanoscience and nanotechnology to be published in the International Journal of Nanomanufacturing ("Nanomanufacturing: path to implementing nanotechnology").
Nano additives can make plastics scratch and flame proof, or give them antibacterial properties. For this to work, the particle distribution within the plastic compound must be absolutely correct. A new device is now able to test the distribution in real time.
We encounter functional plastics parts whenever we open the refrigerator door. Besides being easy to clean and ergonomically shaped, the material built into a refrigerator also have antibacterial properties, thanks to nano-sized additives mixed in with the pellets of plastic during the manufacturing process.
Rolith, Inc. Wins the 2013 Best Manufacturing Technology Award from the Printed Electronics IndustryPress Releases
Rolith, Inc., a leader in advanced nanostructured devices, is pleased to announce that Printed Electronics Industry selected Rolith for the Best Manufacturing Technology award based on its production of transparent metal mesh conductors for large touch screen displays, OLED lighting and photovoltaics.
Each year the Printed Electronics industry recognizes and awards outstanding achievement to those involved in the rapidly growing printed electronics business. The annual awards were announced at the tenth annual IDTechEx Printed Electronics event this week in Santa Clara, California - the world's largest event on the topic.
The federal interagency Advanced Manufacturing National Program Office (AMNPO) has issued for public comment draft performance metrics and intellectual-property-management guidelines for President Obama's proposed National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI).
The draft metrics for the NNMI* are intended to be used in evaluating how effectively the network's planned Institutes for Manufacturing Innovation meet their performance objectives. Metrics are suggested in six performance areas: impact, industry value, education and workforce development, portfolio, financial, and network contribution.
