- Striving for gender parity in engineering
The dialogue around women in work hasn’t changed much over the last decade. Progress has been slow. Engineering in particular faces a number of challenges if it is to become more female-friendly. Not least of these challenges is a male-dominated talent pool and low numbers of female graduates.
- New materials could turn water into the fuel of the future
Scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and California Institute of Technology have nearly doubled the number of materials known to have potential use in solar fuels.
- Invisible radar a boost for defence
New radar technology developed in Australia promises comprehensive surveillance of enemy troops without compromising safety.
- New chapters published by IChemE
The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) Safety Centre and the Safety Institute of Australia will publish two new chapters in the Occupational Health and Safety Body of Knowledge next week.
- Miniature piezoceramic planar triaxial accelerometer
Dytran Instruments has recently announced the release of series 3493A, a miniature, low noise, IEPE triaxial accelerometers.
- Metal-oxide gas sensor
The SGP gas sensor is a multi-pixel platform, which integrates four gas sensing elements into a very small 2.45 x 2.45 x 0.9 mm3 DFN package featuring a fully calibrated air quality output signal.
- Kaeser delivers compressed air to wastewater plant
As part of the Malabar Waste Water Treatment Plant Process and Reliability and Renewal Improvement Project, an ageing compressed air system at the plant was recently upgraded with three Kaeser CSDX series rotary screw compressors, along with a Sigma Air Manager 4.0 compressed air management system.
- Australian physicists open door to improved communications
Research led by ANU on the use of magnets to steer light has opened the door to new communications systems which could be smaller, cheaper and more agile than fibre optics.
- NASA to launch Australian sensor-rich satellite
The miniature CubeSat was developed by the University of Adelaide in South Australia and will be sent to the International Space Station tomorrow on board NASA’s Atlas V rocket.
- New motor control reduces energy usage
Two years ago, Solcon Industries released the DriveStart to deliver on a promise to create a medium voltage motor control that costs less and requires a smaller footprint than a variable frequency drive (VFD).
- A World ‘Simply Connected’
Take a moment to imagine a world that is even more connected than today. A world built on artificial intelligence and cyber physical systems. A world where factories are seamlessly connected throughout the value chain; where production is optimised automatically in synchronisation with customer needs; where breakdowns never occur thanks to continuous equipment monitoring and … Continue reading A World ‘Simply Connected’
