Fraunhofer ILT: Making Tungsten Carbide-Cobalt Cutting Tools with LPBF 3D Printing

Bound Metal Additive Manufacturing Market Outlook – Metal Binder Jetting and Bound Metal Deposition Obviously, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT does a lot of work with lasers, and, in the same vein, with metal 3D printing processes that use lasers. Now, it’s teaming up with scientists from the Institute for Materials Applications in Mechanical Engineering IWM and the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering WZL, both at RWTH Aachen University, to investigate laser processes for the 3D printing of cutting tools made of tungsten carbide-cobalt (WC-Co). The new AiF project – “Additive Manufacturing of Machining Tools out of WC-Co – AM of WC-Co” – began on October 1st 2019 and will last for 30 months; funding is provided by the Otto von Guericke e.V. working group of industrial research associations. Cutting tools made of WC-Co are very heat- and wear-resistant, which is what one generally wants in this type of application, but it’s not easy to use conventional methods of manufacturing to create them. Complex sintering processes are currently used, but it’s not ideal, as only a restricted amount of geometrical freedom is possible, and it’s expensive a...

H-2A workers will be able to cross the Mexican border, leaving farmers relieved

The U.S. State Department expanded the number of foreign agricultural workers whose visa applications can be processed without an in-person interview. SALEM, Ore. (AP)– Farmers and orchard owners nationwide are breathing a little easier because as of this week more H-2A workers will be able to cross the Mexican border. The Capital Press reports the U.S. State Department on Thursday expanded the number of foreign agricultural workers whose visa applications can be processed without an in-person interview. After suspending ”non-essential” visa processing in Mexico due to the coronavirus outbreak, the agency said it would prioritize processing for returning H2A workers whose visas expired within the last year by giving them an interview waiver. Bellows It also broadened those waivers to include new workers and returning workers whose visas had expired in the past 24 months. KEZI-TVP.O.

Houston designers fashion hundreds of free masks to aid in coronavirus pandemic

The Houston designer and Project Runway winner closed her 20-year-old namesake boutique last week because of the coronavirus and wanted help people dealing with the pandemic. Dao saw the demand for surgical masks increasing, so she began creating her own to give away for free. “It’s really been overwhelming, and I don’t get overwhelmed easily,” Dao said. “But we have had so many people call who really need the masks. People whose parents have cancer, health workers who can’t get any. This is just a crazy time.” Dao, with her small boutique staff, is making about 150 masks a day and gives them away at no charge. She makes them from 100-percent cotton fabric, with a pocket in which a piece of fabric or napkin can be inserted for extra protection. While her staff uses protective gloves to handle the masks, Dao advises washing masks before use. Certain surgical masks, like the n95 respirator masks used by health care workers, are regulated by the FDA. While Dao’s are not FDA approved, she said the demand for masks is so great, health care workers just want some protection. According to the FDA, surgical masks may be effective in blocking spl...

Free Mobile : 7,4 millions de clients, ralentissement de la conquête

Business : Sur ses 944,2 millions d’euros de chiffre d’affaires, 321 millions sont réalisés par Free Mobile, dont la part de marché au 3e trimestre atteint 11% avec 7,435 millions d’abonnés. Le groupe Iliad, maison-mère de Free, se porte toujours aussi bien. Au 3e trimestre, son chiffre d’affaires a atteint 944,2 millions d’euros, soit une hausse d’un peu plus de 15% sur un an. Sur les 9 premiers mois de 2013, la croissance de l’opérateur est de 22,5% à 2,7 milliards d’euros de CA. C’est dans le secteur de la téléphonie mobile que la croissance est la plus forte au dernier trimestre (+34,7%), avec 321 millions de chiffre d’affaires dégagés. Free Mobile ne communique en revanche pas sur sa rentabilité. En termes de conquête, le 4e opérateur mobile a attiré 640.000 nouveaux abonnés, portant le parc total de clients de Free Mobile à 7,435 millions. Cela représente 11% de part de marché. « Le Groupe a accéléré sa conquête d’abonnés sur les utilisateurs ayant une consommation modérée (forfait mobile à 2€/mois) » commente Iliad. Mais si Free a continué de gagner massivement des clients, Reuters précise néanmoins qu’il s’agit du « nombre de conquêtes d’abonnés le plus faible dep...

The new generation of smart software, with neural networks and algorithms that are able to partially

The new generation of smart software, with neural networks and algorithms that are able to partially imitate the human brain, is creating an agricultural revolution. Jonathan Berte, founder of Robovision says: “Smart machines with artificial intelligence (AI) will supersede dumb implements.” This is already a reality, in his view. “Farmers with smarter, more efficient machines have a competitive advantage, but these smart implements require large investments. The size of a combine makes no difference to an artificial brain. Or rather, you will see a return on it sooner with a very large combine than with a small one. This technology will therefore become profitable sooner on large farms, which will continue to drive scaling up in agriculture.” Berte graduated from Ghent University as a engineering physicist and spent a year studying applied neurology at the University of Zurich. The insights he developed there became the blueprint for the artificial mini-brains that Robovision is now road testing. Jonathan explains why AI and machine learning is such a major advance. “Take autonomous driving: a computer has to simultaneously process a huge amount of information and make decision...
