Ystruder: New Syringe System Offers Feature Rich, Open-Source Multifunction Extrusion

Bound Metal Additive Manufacturing Market Outlook – Metal Binder Jetting and Bound Metal Deposition In the recently published ‘Ystruder: Open source multifunction extruder with sensing and monitoring capabilities,’ Ville Klar, Joshua M. Pearce, Pyry Kärki, and Petri Kuosmanen explore the use of syringe pumps for projects requiring materials to be extruded at a specific rate. The use of syringes continues to trend upward in labs due to open-source accessibility and affordability—along with offering further potential for innovation. In this study, they have developed a new pump design called the Ystruder. Because there are budgetary concerns in many research projects, reducing cost is imperative to many projects that require high-performance equipment—in developing areas especially. Numerous open-source hardware (OSHW) syringe pumps have been created in the past ten years via 3D design and FDM 3D printing. Today, even more, ‘feature-rich’ syringes are being produced, and for this study, the Ystruder was created as a further refinement to pump designs. Also meant to expand the number of viable applications, the Ystruder is both compact and lightweight and has dual uses as either a ...

Home Alone Health: Exercise the Boredom Away With These Easy Workouts for One

This post is provided courtesy of Ankit Nayal, Director of BActive Sanlitun Soho gym, as well as an ACE certified personal trainer and fitness nutrition specialist. If we could recommend one thing to add to your daily schedule, it would be a little bit of fitness. A lifetime of exercise offers you not only physical benefits – weight management, reduce the risk of heart disease, strengthen your bones and muscles, etc. – but mental ones as well, including improved sleep, stress relief, and an increase in energy. The only caveat is, in order to attain these benefits, you must also exercise consistency. To see results, you need long-term commitment. With Beijingers continuing to operate under various levels of lockdown, and many gyms across the city closed, it goes without saying that getting enough exercise has not been a priority for many. However, being stuck indoors with restricted movement makes it even more imperative that we try to remain fit and healthy. To help you stay active, I have created a set of three fitness workouts that can be easily achieved at home. They are divided into three sections: Each of the workouts is based on the Tabata training style, a high-intensity ...

Russia PVC prices rise in March on low stocks, rouble depreciation

MOSCOW (MRC)–Russia’s domestic polyvinyl chloride (PVC) producers intend to increase prices in March on the back of low stocks and a weakening rouble, according to an MRC Price Report. The weakening of the rouble against the US dollar has reduced the attractiveness of exports for local producers. Russian producers said they intend to increase March prices by Russian roubles (Rb) 2,000-3,000/tonne ($30-46/tonne). Some converters in Russia reported supply restrictions from some producers in mid-February, and some companies have already finalised their deals for February shipments. PVC export prices in Europe and the US have increased in past months, a trend unlikely to be reversed in March. Chinese producers reduced the export prices of acetylene PVC in the last two weeks of the month, but questions over logistics and how quick shipments can be delivered remain. It is widely expected that on the back of oronavirus shipments of PVC to Russia coming from China will be seriously delayed. The Russian rouble weakened noticeably against the dollar and the euro in the past two weeks, a factor which will impede Russian producer accessing unexpansive imported PVC. Overall, deals for...

Mozambique: Beaches of Inhambane Threatened By Mining

Maputo — Mining companies are planning to extract heavy mineral sands from the pristine beaches of the southern Mozambican province of Inhambane. Cited in Monday’s issue of the independent newssheet “Carta de Mocambique”, David Archer, the chief executive officer of the London-based company Savannah Resources, said the Inhambane beaches are “one of the most attractive undeveloped deposits of mineral sands in the world”. In partnership with the Anglo-Australian multinational Rio Tinto, Savannah has been granted a concession of 400 square kilometres in Inhambane, from which it plans To extract titanium ores and zircon. The most common titanium compound, titanium dioxide, is used in the manufacture of white pigments. Titanium can be alloyed with iron, aluminium and other metals to produce lightweight alloys for the aerospace industry and many other applications. Zircon (zirconium silicate) is used in ceramics, water and air purification systems, nuclear fuel rods and catalytic fuel converters. Savannah has applied for a further 138 square kilometres in the same area, in the districts of Inharrime and Jangamo. The Chinese company Haiyu wants to open a ...

The first of its kind in the world, AP&T’s scalable production line for hot forming of high-strength aluminum offers new methods for manufacturing lightweight car body components. To meet increasingly strict government requirements regarding CO2 emissions, the automotive industry has been working for many years to reduce fuel consumption of newly manufactured vehicles by reducing their weight. New materials, designs, and manufacturing methods have made possible lighter parts and components. Press hardening of sheet steel has been vital to the progress made so far. As this technology continues to improve, other materials and material combinations have been developed, such as high-strength aluminum. While considerably lighter than steel, this material has entailed high costs and presented some forming challenges. In 2013 AP&T began to investigate the development of a new process for hot forming of complexly designed parts made of high-strength aluminum. During the following three-year period, the company worked with customers, universities, and suppliers on testing the material, production processes, and equipment.

Some 2019-2020 Audi A6 cars recalled over fire risk

According to documents Audi’s parent automaker, Volkswagen Group, filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a few thousand of the cars house a potential fire risk. In total, 5,471 A6 cars from the 2019-2020 model years are involved, ones that feature the mild-hybrid system paired with the 2.0-liter turbo-four engine. Getting into the nitty-gritty details of the problem, Audi found the belt starter generator’s plastic moulding could develop cracks and allow moisture in. If moisture enters, it could wreak havoc on the electrical system and result in a short, and possibly a fire. There’s already a fix ready for the problem and all it takes is a new and improved starter generator. Technicians will replace the component free of charge. Owners should expect a mailed notice starting May 15. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. We delete comments that violate our policy, which we encourage you to read.

Vet-recommended supplies to have when you bring a new cat home

The day you bring home your new cat is full of joy. But while you may be ready for snuggles and play from the moment your kitty arrives, most felines aren’t so gung-ho about moving day. Just when they were beginning to get used to the shelter or foster home — bam — here comes another transition. And cats, they aren’t the best at dealing with change. Preparing for the arrival of your new cat ahead of time helps to assure that their adjustment will be as seamless as possible. While it’s a no-brainer that cats require a litter box and food, new cat owners may not realize that items like scratching posts, cat trees, calming pheromones, and toys can help reduce stress and provide your new pet with an enriching environment. With the help of four experts, we’ve come up with a list of essential things to have when you bring a new cat home. For a veterinary perspective, we consulted with veterinarian Dr. Andrea Moore, owner and medical director at Pinnacle Animal Hospital in San Jose, California.
