A Bright Future for Thermally Conductive Plastics : Plastics Technology

Lighter weight, lower cost, and greater impact strength, moldability and customization are rapidly driving demand for thermoplastics that help keep electronics, lighting and car engines cool. PolyOne’s thermally conductive compounds are used in automotive and E/E applications such as LED lighting, heat sinks and electronic enclosures. Among Covestro’s thermally conductive Makrolon PC offerings are grades for LED lamps and heat sinks. RTP’s thermally conductive compounds are used in housings like this battery case, as well as heat sinks and more integrated heat-spreading components. OEMs in industries such as electrical/electronics, automotive, lighting, medical devices, and industrial machinery have been hot for thermally conductive thermoplastics for several years now, as they seek new solutions for applications that include heat sinks and other heat-removal devices, LED enclosures, and electric battery housings. Industry studies have indicated these materials are growing by double digits, driven by new applications like all-electric vehicles and complex automotive and large commercial LED lighting assemblies. Thermally conductive plastics are challenging more traditional mate...

Tribune editorial board: Here are our ideas to make downtown La Crosse even more fun | Editorial

Partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered thunderstorms mainly during the morning. High 89F. Winds SSW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 40%.. The development of corporate offices, first-rate housing, hotels new and refurbished, eateries and entertainment has created a vibrant city center. Our editorial board recently held a spontaneous discussion about ways to make our downtown even more fun. More signage for tourists: The recent state track meet was a wonderful example of tourism potential. Yet it was almost comical watching the parade of cars heading down dead-end streets trying to find Grandad Bluff, for instance. One smart way to make sure tourists come back is to make sure they have a good time while here. Making it easier for them to navigate all of our attractions would help. A good place to float your boat: The Mississippi River has been flowing through La Crosse for a few years now, and it’s time we figure out how to put boat docks along the river near downtown to welcome visitors. We can welcome the Mississippi Queen; we can’t dock a single boat near downtown. It makes no sense. More fun ways of getting around by water: As we continue planning to develop Riverside No...

MXA TEAM TESTED: SLIPSHOT HYDRAULIC HOLESHOT DEVICE

Publisher – Motocross Action Magazine is the worlds leading publication about motocross and supercross. WHAT IS IT? The Slipshot is an AMA-legal holeshot device that is allowed in the stock class. It has nothing to do with suspension and everything to do with clutch control. Its goal is to guarantee repeatability each and every time you drop the clutch off the starting line. The Slipshot’s hydraulic mechanism operates off the clutch arm on the engine cases. Its small, lightweight hydraulic cylinder is cable-operated from the clutch lever. How fast the clutch is released can be adjusted via a dial on the back of the cylinder. More tension releases the clutch slower; less tension releases it faster. It allows hydraulics to release the clutch at whatever speed you prefer—without you doing anything. (1) Concept. The Slipshot device gives you a consistent launch off the gate. All you have to do is dump the clutch lever and the Slipshot handles the speed with which the clutch is released. You can set it so that the clutch releases slowly so you don’t get wheelspin on concrete. Or, you can set it to release the clutch quickly to blast out of loamy starting spots. Once the clutch ...

Steelcase Uses Carbon 3D Printing to Create Customized Arm Caps for SILQ Office Chair

The furniture company Steelcase recently enlisted the help of Fast Radius and Carbon to design and 3D print multiple iterations of a custom arm cap for its award-winning SILQ office chair. SILQ is an award-winning “innovative seating design” from the furniture company Steelcase. It was designed with minimal parts and provides custom-comfort to anyone who decides to take a seat. However, Steelcase wanted to take the personalization of this chair one step further. And so, they reached out to Fast Radius, a provider of additive manufacturing solutions, and Carbon, the Silicon Valley tech startup and digital manufacturer, to help improve the design. The two companies have partnered with Steelcase to create a custom arm cap. They worked together to design, engineer and print the cap using Carbon’s Digital Light Synthesis technology. By using this groundbreaking additive manufacturing method, the furniture company was able to evoke the idea that the chair is aligned with human physiology. The ability to personalize the chair to react to an individual’s body and movements is essential to the concept of the SILQ. “Ever since SILQ first debuted, we have continued to experiment with enha...

Little-Known Trick Will Disable Engine Auto-Stop-Start System

We know, advertisements are annoying and slow down the internet. Unfortunately, this is how we pay the bills and our authors. We would love for you to enjoy our content, we’ve worked hard on providing it. Please whitelist our site in your adblocker, refresh the page, and enjoy! Opinions on engine auto-stop-start technology are scattershot: some enjoy the technology and its attempt to increase fuel efficiency, some are indifferent, and the rest downright hate the feature and will go to great lengths to turn the system off at every opportunity, especially in vehicles that don’t offer a way to disable the feature. We’ve already covered the diverse opinions on the tech and how to disable the feature. But what we haven’t covered is a little-known way to disable the system, and it involves the hood. So, here’s a new tip for those who hate the system. As it turns out, engine auto-stop-start does not operate if the car is started with the hood open. Moreover, the system remains off even after the hood is closed, effectively disabling the system from functioning until the next key cycle. For those who despise the system, this could be welcomed knowledge. To take advantage of the w...

GEWhether you’re short on time or just need a snack now, the microwave is a staple of American households for a reason: They’re fast and versatile. A traditional microwave allows you to steam veggies, melt butter, and reheat your leftovers.

Wheels Aplenty: A Buyers’ Guide to Aftermarket Mustang Wheels

When it comes to modifying our Mustangs, there is a phenomenon known as “Day One” and “Day Two” builds. The first day or two when you get a car, there are several things most people do first to personalize it. Almost always, a Day One or Day Two build includes wheels and tires as the starting point, since larger or just different wheels are the easiest and fastest ways to radically change a car’s appearance overnight. But choosing exactly the right wheels is a personal thing and one that some people get overly obsessive about. Usually, the best way to decide what you like best is to look in magazines, online, or by walking around car shows to check out cars similar to yours, and note which wheel design and sizes trip your trigger. To help speed up that decision-making ability, we put together this Buyer’s Guide of aftermarket wheels for early Mustangs, ranging from stock-style performance wheels with modern build quality to pure race wheels and several in-between those styles. So check out these wheels, and see if one jumps off the page, grabs you by the neck, and screams, “Buy me!” Larger-diameter wheels are an easy way to change the overall look of your car, even if you stay w...
