“The Eagle has landed”

Lockheed Martin has revealed its concept for a new crewed lunar lander: a single stage, fully reusable system that incorporates flight-proven technologies and systems from the NASA Orion spacecraft. In its initial configuration, the lander would deliver a crew of four and 2,000 pounds of cargo to the Moon’s surface for up to two weeks.

‘Minecraft' getting kids into coding

Stephen Foster, CEO and Co-Founder of ThoughtSTEM, has a new outlook on STEM education and the utilities that can be used to get kids involved in software coding.

‘Military-grade’ Aluminum

While the cracking debacle on 263 U.S. naval vessels didn’t cause the Navy to halt aluminum use in all ship construction, it did prompt a re-think of future architectures and materials.

igus develops 3D-printable bearing material with low-friction properties

igus has developed what it claims is the world’s first tribologically enhanced plastic filament for 3D printers, which are used to print full-size, three-dimensional objects. Specifically created for motion control applications, the low-friction material is 50 times more resistant to wear and abrasion than conventional 3D printer materials, according to the German plastics company.

dSPACE enhances environment for electric motor controller testing

dSPACE’s latest solution for electric motor testing combines SCALEXIO hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation technology with an DS2655 FPGA base module and a scalable electronic load to enable users to test electric motor control systems in a more realistic environment by emulating the real motor and generator currents.

bauma industry barometer: tech-focused in North America

The triennial bauma trade fair may be a few months away yet, but setup for what essentially becomes a city of machinery began in November. Messe München executives present an event update as well as the results of an “industry barometer” survey conducted in 2018.

Zwick Roell provides flexible materials testing over a wide temperature range

To enable the tests required for development work to be performed with maximum efficiency, the Zwick Roell Group (ZwickRoell) – a global supplier of materials testing machines based out of Ulm, Germany – developed a materials testing machine that can be equipped with both a temperature chamber and a high-temperature furnace.
