Thyssenkrupp Wins 3D Printing Approval

the thyssenkrupp TechCenter Additive Manufacturing the world’s first producer of 3D printed parts for maritime applications to obtain manufacturer approval from DNV GL. This means that thyssenkrupp TechCenter Additive Manufacturing is an DNV GL approved supplier for maritime and general industrial applications. Certification was important for thyssenkrupp Marine Systems as the company is working closely with international customers on the integration of additive manufactured parts on ships and submarines.“Additive manufacturing will have a significant impact on the future maritime value

.”Enhancing iXblue’s offer in subsea positioning solutions, the Canopus LBL transponder was developed in tight collaboration with major scientific partners. Easy to deploy and to use thanks to its user-friendly MMI (Man-Machine Interface), it is especially suited for scientific and industrial applications that require high autonomy, instrumentation, repeatability and accuracy. Thanks to its hundreds of acoustic codes for interrogation and reply, Canopus can be used in the most complex environments without any acoustic interferences. It features underwater acoustic communication between transponder

capacity, and this test bed is just the next step in helping us achieve that mission."Yale was founded in 1950 by O. Sherman Yale, who early on recognized the value and cost-saving potential for synthetic fiber technology. Now, nearly 70 years later, Yale’s products span multiple industrial applications, and Yale rope, Fortis2 and LOUPS slings, cables, and other products are found on every continent - on the deep sea bed, in outer space, and under the arctic ice.The machine includes built-in programs and customization available for load testing including cyclic, bend over sheave and proof

can collaborate and contribute to new robotic capabilities.    Open means the system can easily be extended to work with new systems, new sensors and new programmers and hardware manufacturers – the goal should always be best-of-breed. An improvement in code, sensing or industrial applications is something that we should be able to take advantage of, without building a whole new system. By generating waypoints that dynamically stay ahead of the vehicle, the vehicle can adapt the mission in real-time as it senses new stimuli. Since all autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) and unmanned

and employ safe operating limits. Immediately, the system can relay alerts back to the autopilot, and if desired, can be programmed to take preventive actions without a pilot.    According to Gartner Research, battery life is one of the largest inhibitors to drone adoption in industrial applications. Synapse keeps UAVs in the air longer. Our ultra-efficient solution incorporates motor commutation algorithms and active braking that reduce power consumption by up to 10% per motor. What does this all mean? UAVs can stay in the air longer, carry more payload and fly further.   Synapse
