Chimney camera takes the heat

When extreme heat kicks in, how do you insulate electronics against the potential consequences? Tom Shelley reports

Terminating a knotty problem

Tom Shelley reports on a dramatic development in an ancient technology that’s still a cornerstone of many types of engineering

Sensor system detects beads, bulges and bumps

Dean Palmer reports on a unique, non-contact laser line sensor and integrated controller that offer high speed, accurate inspection and that requires no special programming skills to set up

Bridging the machine safety awareness gap

When it comes to machine safety legislation and standards many machine builders choose to self-certify their equipment, but this can prove costly, writes Dean Palmer

Protecting against the foggy dew

Tom Shelley reports on a simple idea to deal with items, especially electronic devices, that have either got wet or are in danger of doing so

Bearing sensor unaffected by EM fields

Today, AC motors normally consume around 400 to 600 Amps, but future motor designs are heading towards the 800 to 1,000 Amps range, with the focus on extreme power density and high current.

Pipe profile gauged to precision

Mark Fletcher takes a look at a laser profiler which promises to offer general industry the same functionality it has given the offshore oil and water industries

Cold supersonic deposition

It may soon be possible to both make and repair components using an entirely new method – that appears to achieve the impossible. Tom Shelley reports

radar saves lives and money

Mark Fletcher looks into A concept which will give engineers a far more accurate view of what is going on inside structures and mechanical parts, vital in the war against fatigue and failure

Pressure mapped instantly by membrane

When improving the design of parts which fit together, whether they be pipe joints, gear teeth or human bottoms on seats, it is useful to know the exact distribution of contact pressures.
