Experimental evaluation of a special purpose miniature machine tool with parallel kinematics architecture: Free leg hexapod
This paper reports on multi-scope evaluation of the special purpose in situ parallel kinematics machine tool known as the Free-Leg Hexapod or FreeHex.
New composites and nano-composites polymers are continuously developed satisfying more and more exigent demands in terms of mechanical and tribological properties.
Wind Energy association statistics says that changing from Preventive to Predictive maintenance, the reduction of maintenance costs is around 47%.
This work summarizes the corrosion, tribological and tribocorrosion response of different Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO) coatings developed on aluminium-silicon alloys destined to replace cast iron liners in a total aluminium engine block, as well as the tribological behaviour of Mg pistons improved with PEO treatments as possible candidates for Al pistons replacement.
Influence of temperature on tribological behaviour of ionic liquids as lubricants and lubricant additives
Ionic liquids are low-melting-point salts composed entirely of ions, and many of them are liquids at room temperature.
A simple method for the detection of TNF-alpha protein biomarker in human serum with great sensitivity has been developed using a surface plasmon resonance biosensor.
