Efficiency, Speed Make Kencoa Aerospace Machining Top Notch

Advanced Manufacturing Media is a leading source for news and in-depth technical information about advanced manufacturing in North America. When Kencoa Aerospace began its operations 20 years ago, it was a small company focused on defense applications. But, according to Troy Boston, engineering manager for the company’s U.S.-based operations, the company also progressed into commercial aerospace over the last six years and considers itself very diverse in terms of the parts it can machine for well-known clients, such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Gulf Stream. While headquartered globally in Korea, the U.S.-based aerospace operation is a Tier-1 supplier of multiaxis precision machined aerostructures, jet engine components, and major assemblies of commercial, military and regional business jets. “We machine anything from plastics, stainless steel, titanium, all the way up to Inconel,” Boston said. He explained that the part sizes the firm creates can range from the size of a quarter to 20-feet long. The majority of these parts are internal structural components for aircraft and can range anywhere from wing components to cargo floor skins. To create the parts needed for these defe...

LAS VEGAS — Whirlpool is giving us a glimpse into its vision of the future. At

LAS VEGAS — Whirlpool is giving us a glimpse into its vision of the future. At the International CES, currently underway in Las Vegas, the appliance company showed off both connected appliances as well as concepts for what might be. What caught our eye was this fridge that played music while it chilled the food and wine inside. Thanks to a speaker built inside the door, you can stream music via Bluetooth from your mobile device to the fridge. When we put a hand on the outside of the fridge, you could actually feel the vibration of the music. If you have the kind of kitchen everyone hangs out in, the CoolVox could entertain you with music without the need for a speaker or music player cluttering up the kitchen counter. Much better for when you need space for chopping veggies. The company is also showing a fireplace of the future as well as appliances with 6th Sense Live, which connects them to your smartphone. Powerful yet fun DIY robotics for adults and children. This update moves the control/interactions to your favorite mobile devices. Two people watching two different shows — full screen — on one TV while they sit next to each other sounds silly, but you can̵...

You find them everywhere from 3D printers to jet airliners. They’re the little switches that detect

You find them everywhere from 3D printers to jet airliners. They’re the little switches that detect paper jams in your printer, or the big armored switches that sense when the elevator car is on the right floor. They’re microswitches, or more properly miniature snap-action switches, and they’re so common you may never have wondered what’s going on inside them. But the story behind how these switches were invented and the principle of physics at work in the guts of these tiny and useful switches are both pretty interesting. Microswitches have a long history, at least as long as it takes for the original trademarked “Micro Switch” brand to become a generic term. Back in 1932, a company called Burgess Labs in Wisconsin got an order to build 10,000 electric chicken brooders. Charles Burgess, the head honcho of the company, ordered 10,000 switches from a manufacturer, but was dismayed to find out that the switches were not up to snuff. They wouldn’t consistently switch at the same actuation point, and clearly wouldn’t work for the brooders he was already on the hook for. Dr. Burgess assigned one of his mechanics to develop a better switch. Phillip McGall eventually came up with a sna...

3D Food Printing Startup BeeHex Debuts a Cake Decorating Robot

BeeHex, a company that got its start as a NASA project to create a 3D pizza printer, has gone from pizza to pastries with its latest product, a dessert decorating robot. The new product, a high-volume machine that “prints” frosting from up to six 62 oz cartridges, uses an object scanning system to calculate the height and shape of items it will decorate. From there, the robot extrudes frosting to decorate the pastry with up to six colors. Depending on the complexity of the design, the robot can finish 15-21 cakes (1/4 sheet) per hour or 120-500 cookies. According to the company, this translates to an increase in productivity up to 66% over traditional (read human) cake and cookie decorators. The base price for the 3D Decorator is $65 thousand and can be leased for $1,600 per month. While that might seem a bit spendy for a frosting-dispensing robot, it could easily make economic sense for a business with a whole lotta cakes to decorate that is paying a human to do all the work. And of course, the best proof of whether a customer will pay a certain price is, well, customers, and BeeHex already has those. BeeHex CEO Anjan Contractor told me via email that the product is already shi...

Halter CNC Automation from the Netherlands and Fastems Oy from Finland have announced an intention to

The impact of compressed air on pneumatic tools and abrasive performance

Figure 1: Two controlled evaluations were conducted on 1018 carbon steel flat stock to show the direct impact pneumatic air has on abrasive performance. A compressed air system must be able to deliver an adequate volume of air in standard cubic feet per minute (SCFM) increments and maintain the proper operating pressure in pounds per square inch (PSI) to supply all compressed air requirements for a facility and its related applications. Knowing the proper requirements for optimizing the compressed air system is essential to meet all air needs. There is a common misconception that if the line pressure (PSI) is high, all air requirements will be met. This is false ‒ in fact it is a combination of both PSI and SCFM. Not only does the size or horsepower of the compressor make an impact, several other critical factors have a direct effect. These include the air receiver tank capacity, main trunk line diameter, drop-line diameter to manifold, plug/couple type, inside diameter (ID) and length of hose to tool, and whether the facility has a loop system. A proper air system is important for delivering optimal abrasive performance when using a pneumatic tool for grinding or sanding. Pneum...

Hello there Sajeev, hope all is well with you. I have an issue with a 2010

Hello there Sajeev, hope all is well with you. I have an issue with a 2010 Audi A4; my boyfriend bought this car from a dealership (used). However, he didn’t even have the car six months before realizing there was a piston ring problem — he would have to top up the oil when driving the car. We informed the dealership about it, but they gave us the run-around and did not fix the problem. The car is financed so he’s still paying for it and has about $9,000 left. The car is completely dead at this point; we know about the cost to fix the car but we’re stuck on what to do with the car. Working to pay to fix the car is a lot within itself and we can’t sell it because we’re still paying for it. I hate writing responses with no sign of a happy ending. The only silver lining: lessons can be learned.
