Neither welding nor ultra-modern technological methods of joining metal surfaces - with the help of a laser or super-powerful adhesives - have replaced the ancient, but not aging method: soldering. And here promising innovations are constantly appearing, many come from NTTM participants, young innovators in production.

One of the innovations was born at the Vitebsk machine-tool plant named after S. M. Kirov. An original telescopic torch has been developed here, which allows you to solder different-sized parts with fusible solders: small workpieces - the torch is reduced, you need to connect longer ones - the "soldering iron" is stretched to the required size.

The "secret" is that the burner tube is made of composite. Its outer pipe is made plugged at the end and is mounted on a rod, and that through a slider - with an inner pipe connected to a protective screen and a gas fitting with an adjusting screw. A rod with a fixed slider serves to set the size of the firing area, and also prevents accidental rotation of the pipes relative to each other - that is, it also ensures that the holes of the outer and inner pipes match.

The gas is supplied through the fitting and the regulating nut into the pipe cavities, by expanding the perforated sections, the size of the firing section is set - for the entire soldered length of the workpiece. Thanks to this, warpage of the product is eliminated, uniform heating is ensured, the quality of the connection is improved, and mechanized soldering of parts up to 470 mm long becomes possible.

Blinking of the magician and his audience 19.05.2024

Magic and illusions have always captured the attention of the public, but what happens behind the scenes of the magician and in the brains of his audience? Scientists from the UK decided to solve this mystery by conducting a new study involving ten illusionists of varying experience. Illusionists, some of whom had been practicing magic for more than half a century, others for only six months, were invited to demonstrate the same trick - the popular coin trick. Recordings of their performances during training and on stage showed that each of them began to blink significantly more often at the moment of performing the trick. The study's findings indicate that magicians' blink rate may be related to unconscious aspects of their performance. At the same time, as scientists have found, spectators also begin to blink more often, following the movements of the illusionist. This observation supports the idea that magicians may be catalysts for blinking in audiences. Additional research has shown that magicians blink more often during ... >>

Ultrasonic coffee machine 19.05.2024

Iced coffee has become an integral part of coffee culture in recent years. Therefore, engineers from the University of New South Wales decided to improve its preparation. They have developed an ultrasonic coffee machine that reduces the cold brew time for ground coffee beans from 12-24 hours to significantly less time. Iced coffee, or "Cold brew", is popular due to its smoothness, low acidity and low bitterness. It is prepared by steeping ground coffee in cold water for a long time. Unlike traditional hot brewing, which often imparts bitterness to coffee, cold brewing extracts more delicate and complex flavors from the coffee beans. The innovative system, presented by a team of engineers, introduces ultrasonic technology into the coffee preparation process. The system uses ultrasonic waves to speed up the process of extracting oils, flavor and aroma from ground coffee. This allows you to significantly reduce the time ... >>

The speech of sperm whales is similar to that of humans 18.05.2024

In the world of the ocean, where the mysterious and unknown coexists with the studied, sperm whales, with their huge brains, are of particular interest to science. Researchers, working with a huge array of audio recordings collected during the Dominica Sperm Whale Project (DSWP) - more than 8000 recordings, seek to unravel the secrets of their communication and understand the structure and complexity of the language of these mysterious creatures. By studying in detail the recordings of 60 sperm whales in the eastern Caribbean, scientists have revealed surprising features of their communication, revealing the complexity of their language. "Our observations indicate that these whales have a highly developed combinatorial communication system, including rubato and ornaments, which indicates their ability to quickly adapt and vary during communication. Despite significant differences in evolution, sperm whales have elements in their communication that are characteristic of human communication," says Shane Gero, a biologist at Carleton University and director of the CETI project.

Cartilage repair with a printer 08.12.2012

Researchers from the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine have developed a new hybrid technology to create special structures that are very necessary for modern regenerative medicine.

3D printing of living tissue has helped make a big step forward in regenerative medicine. However, XNUMXD printed structures are not very durable and are not always suitable, for example, for restoring cartilage in joints. Scientists have been able to solve this problem with a combination of XNUMXD printing and electrospinning, which allows the production of porous structures and helps the implant integrate into surrounding tissues. The combination of two approaches makes it possible to create a structure from natural and synthetic materials: the first provide an environment conducive to cell growth, and the second - the strength of the structure.

Scientists have created a special device that combines traditional inkjet printing and electrospinning. This device can be used to create artificial cartilage scaffolds that can be implanted in patients to fully restore damaged joints. During the experiments, flexible synthetic polymer fibers were connected layer by layer with cartilage cells from the ear of a rabbit. The result was an implant with a diagonal of 10 cm and a thickness of only 0,4 mm. Even after one week, the cells inside this structure were alive, and 8 weeks after implantation in live mice, the growth of strong elastic cartilage was observed.

In the future, thanks to new technology, the replacement of damaged cartilage will become commonplace and will be able to restore health to millions of people. To do this, first a three-dimensional image of the joint using MRI will be taken, and then an implant that perfectly matches the anatomical features will be printed. After two to three months, the diseased joint will become healthy again.
