There are a few hundred electric buses in the U.S. – and thousands still running on diesel. That gap doesn’t deter Ryan Popple, chief executive officer of Burlingame, CA-based electric bus manufacturer Proterra Inc., from proclaiming a zero-emission future for American buses to be a sure bet. A big part of his pitch rests on simple economics.

CASE STUDY DOWNLOAD: Barkhausen Noise vs. Nital Etch
With Barkhausen noise analysis, you can detect near surface stress and micro structural defects due to improper heat treatment and grinding. Unlike traditional nital etch, Barkhausen noise analysis is non-destructive, objective, and repeatable.
  • No scrap or consumables
  • No chemical disposals
  • Safer laboratory and work space
  • Improved traceability and process optimization
In this case study, find out how one transmission manufacturer leverages Barkhausen noise analysis to significantly improve the safety and accuracy of their inspection and cut costs.

A memorable Superbowl commercial a few years back depicted a crew of mechanics hastily changing the wings on a passenger plane while the aircraft remained aloft, never veering from its established flight path. It was a metaphor, of course, for the challenge of managing major change within an ongoing enterprise. These are industry issues sure to contribute to the growing buzz surrounding the upcoming International Paris Air Show in June.

Abbas Daeichin is a German engineer passionate about renewable energy, but quick to point out their current drawbacks. He says that renewable energy power plants have large capital costs, low efficiency, and are dependent on sun or wind. Daeichin and his team have been working for two years on the Marine Acrobat, an underwater robot that generates power from gravity and buoyancy forces. The team has a working prototype and is looking to fund a larger capacity model and eventually create six for a "power plant" through a Kickstarter campaign.

The entry of any well-known – or "2D printing" – company into the additive manufacturing (AM) industry has become the pinnacle of not only a good headline but proof that 3D printing is serious business. HP baited its entry for some time before officially launching its polymer technology back in 2016, Ricoh built its own powder-bed system, and other household brands including Polaroid and Kodak have since introduced smaller desktop products aimed at more commercial and education facing markets. So, when Xerox, another digital print technology giant, tipped 3D printing, namely metals, as one of its key focus areas for its three-year innovation roadmap, our curiosity was once again piqued.
