Defiant attack helicopter proves it's faster than Black Hawk

On a recent flight test, Sikorsky-Boeing's new SB-1 Defiant attack and assault helicopter proved it was faster than the legendary Black Hawk by reaching 205 knots -- and the compound coaxial copter is designed to go much faster. Defiant is one of two designs in the running for the Army's Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft competition.

Going super small can make super-strong metals
It's long been thought by materials scientists that metals get stronger as their grain sizes get smaller -- down to a point of 10 nanometers, and then the materials get weaker. But experiments led by a former University of Utah researcher show that's not always the case. A team produced nickel that is 10 times stronger than commercial-grade material using grain sizes as small as 3 nm.

Why would you need a sapphire piston -- and who could make one?
If you want a prototype piston made of metal for research purposes, you have a lot of options -- you can even 3D print your own. But what if you need something much more exotic, like the second-hardest natural material? When Mid Michigan Research had just such a need, it turned to Insaco for the company's long history of custom fabrication of sapphire precision parts, often in unusual forms.

THK world-class KR actuators -- Rigid, accurate, and compact
The LM guide actuator model KR from THK provides high rigidity, high-precision functionality, and space savings. It is achieved by a nut block designed in a structure that integrates an LM rail having a highly rigid U-shaped cross-sectional form with the LM guide section. The KR features a four-way equal load rating. The LM guide actuator can be operated in any position, which makes it ideal for loading in directions that are not fixed.

Solenoid valves for spaceflight applications
Marotta Controls has introduced four new solenoid valves to its CoRe Flow Controls series -- one of the only valve catalogs available for spaceflight. These new products support the commercial space industry's growing use of more efficient in-vehicle system designs and propellants that deliver better performance and greater ROI. CoRe pneumatic valves operate with 1/4-in. to 3/4-in. lines; handle fluids such as helium, methane, nitrogen, and oxygen; and are qualified to the Air Force Space Command's (AFSC) SMC-S-016 standard. These valves include Marotta's customer Qualification-by-Similarity (Qual-by-Sim) support, designed to get customers into orbit faster and with less upfront investment.

CNC machining for prototypes or low-volume parts
For plastic parts, CNC machining allows you to test the form, fit, and function of prototypes prior to tooling up for the injection molded production parts. For both plastic and metal, CNC machining provides fast turnaround and low cost for small quantities of parts. Learn all about ICOMold's CNC machining capabilities, which typically include tolerances to within +/- 0.2 to 0.3 mm for plastics and +/- 0.05 mm for metals. Parts that are CNC machined can also exhibit better structural integrity than those that are 3D printed, due to the nature of the manufacturing process. Secondary processes also available from ICOMold.

50 years of Mazda rotary-engine prototypes: Weird, wild, and wonderful
Founded in 1920, Mazda is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. As part of the big celebrations, we take a look back at two of the things the company is well known for: its success with the rotary (Wankel) engine, first introduced in the company's vehicles in 1967, and their sometimes-out-there prototype rotary-engine cars, which range from fancy track racers to everyday commuters.

Cut-and-form LED panels let you bend the rules of lighting design
VCC is bending the rules of lighting design with its new VentoFlex tiles. The VentoFlex modular lighting system opens up countless ways for architects and lighting designers to make an impact. Available in 12-in. x 12-in. sheets, these innovative LED tiles can be cut and formed around any design element, including rounded corners and tight spaces, without taking up much room at all -- just 0.15 in. (3.81 mm). A pair of scissors is the only tool required to cut VentoFlex tiles to the size and shape you desire. Ten or 15 tiles can be linked together to one driver and dimmer to create thousands of square inches of versatile lighting power.
