A precautionary approach to health and safety while using awesome, awesome laser cutters in the home.

Holy Mola, Laser Cutters! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seem some pretty cool projects coming out of my freshly arrived Glowforge laser cutter. But laser cutters are not all sunshine and cool, wooden hinges. Laser cutters were, until very recently, the domain of industrial fabrication shops with extensive safety systems. As a new generation of low(er) cost, hobby and household cutters enter the market, we need to step back an think critically about the potential health and safety impacts of these incredible machines. Like I did with 3D printers a few years back, I’m taking a deep dive into the hazards of laser cutters in the home and how to avoid them. First, the issues of least concern (not because they aren’t bad, just that they’re far less likely to occur). Fire. Lots of materials can catch fire, including, to no one’s surprise, wood. A fire safety plan will go a long way, but you can avoid ruining your laser cutter by being aware of what materials frequently catch fire. ABS, HDPE, polystyrene and polypropylene, and anything with poor thermal properties is going to ignite rather than cut cleanly. And then you’re going to have a bad day. Beam escape. If your m...

The trend involves a metallic polish running through the center of the nail, creating an effect that resembles a cat’s eye. If you’re baffled by this trend, we don’t blame you. Re-creating the look requires some unique nail tools. First, paint your nails with a color of your choosing. Next, you’ll need a special polish designed for this trend that contains a lot of metallic pigments to paint over your base color. The key to making your nails look like cat eyes is moving the metallic pigments on your nail bed in your desired direction using a small magnet. Depending on how you point the magnet, the shape of the metallic polish will change. To make the manicure look even more feline, you can shape your nails into a thin almond to resemble claws. On a black background, this nail look can appear especially spooky, making it the ideal October manicure to celebrate Hall...

Volkswagen unveils MEB-based battery-electric dune buggy at Geneva: ID. BUGGY concept

Volkswagen introduced the next member of the ID. concept family—the I.D. BUGGY—at the 89th Geneva International Motor Show. Drawing inspiration from the classic California dune buggies of the 1960s, the ID. BUGGY shows the versatility of the modular electric drive matrix (MEB). The zero-emissions drivetrain of the I.D. BUGGY is made up of the electric motor integrated in the rear axle, power electronics, a single-speed gearbox, the high-voltage flat battery (62 kWh) arranged in the car floor to save space, and the additional units integrated in the vehicle front end. The electric motor delivers 201 horsepower and maximum torque of 228 lb-ft from standstill. This means that the electric vehicle always provides enough power on the rear axle, even off-road. With full acceleration on paved slopes, the concept car sprints from zero to 62 mph in 7.2 seconds. The maximum speed is electronically controlled at 99 mph. As an alternative to the rear-wheel-drive layout, it is also possible to fit a second electric motor in the front axle of the ID. BUGGY. In this case, an “electric propshaft” would distribute the power of the 4Motion four-wheel drive between the front and rear axles in frac...

Supplementary Protectors Market Volume Forecast and Value Chain Analysis 2017 – 2027

Supplementary Protectors is a manually resettable device which is designed in such a way that it opens the circuit automatically on predetermined value of time versus voltage or current in electrical equipment or within the appliance.  Supplementary protectors may also be provided means for closing or opening the circuit. The primary function of supplementary is to protect the equipment from excess voltage or current. Owing to the contrast with branch circuit breaker that is applied with at 75% of the rated current value, the supplementary protector can be applied at 100% of the rated current values, unless marked differently on the device. Supplementary protectors are used for electrical equipment or within appliances such as control power transformers, control circuits, relays, lighting circuits and PLC I/O points. Supplementary protectors have three different types of tripping characteristic such as type B, type C, type D. These characteristics or tripping defines the speed of the devices in response to the various level of overcurrent. The tripping characteristic is applied on the basis of the application, for instance, type B supplementary protectors are developed primarily...

Doing the Most is a special series about ambition — how we define it, harness it, and

Doing the Most is a special series about ambition — how we define it, harness it, and conquer it. For many women, the window of career opportunity seems to get narrower and narrower with age. And while dewy teen ingenues may look like they have it made, the reality is that plenty of famous women achieve success way after their teens, 20s, or even 50s. Below, 25 women including Ava DuVernay, Iris Apfel, and Vera Wang discuss the benefits of being a late bloomer in their careers. 1) Leslie Jones“I remember some nights where I was, like, All right, this comedy shit just ain’t working out. And not just when I was 25. Like, when I was 45 … I’m glad this whole success thing is happening now. I can’t even imagine a 23-year-old Leslie in this position. They would have kicked me off the set [of Ghostbusters] after two days. I would have fucked half the dudes in the crew. I was a less confident person back then. And damn sure not as funny.” — The New Yorker, January 2016 2) Viola Davis“[For years,] I was trying to fit in, stifling my voice, stifling who I was, in order to be seen as pretty, in order for people to like me. And then going home, not being able to sleep and having anxiety. I...

Advanced Manufacturing Media is a leading source for news and in-depth technical information about advanced manufacturing

Advanced Manufacturing Media is a leading source for news and in-depth technical information about advanced manufacturing in North America. No one can accuse cutting tool manufacturers of not trying every possible combination of coating, substrate, material and geometry in their quest to gain a competitive edge for their customers. Improvements in indexable cutting tools extend to virtually every cutting process. Until the day when it will be sufficient to establish a baseline for comparative and competitive tooling performance through data analytics (a distinct future possibility of digitization and the IIoT), cutting tool manufacturers will rely on tried-and-true processes. They will mix and match data about chemical makeup, substrates, geometry and machine capability to advance technology the old-fashioned way—by R&D expertise, trial and error, internal testing and validation of new concepts in the field. Here’s how major cutting tool manufacturers are advancing the technology of indexable cutting tools. “Indexable tooling exists for almost every type of application: milling, turning and grooving, drilling, slotting, boring, and reaming,” explained Luke Pollock, product ...

Gucci Stirs Up Controversy With Straitjackets in Milan Runway Show

The most recent example came during the opening of the Gucci Spring Summer 2020 ready-to-wear show in Milan on Sunday. Michele sent models down the runway wearing white straitjackets and institutional-looking uniforms. The 21 looks will not be sold and were designed to make a statement, Gucci said in a statement. “It’s clearly meant to be a provocative move,” said Sarah Unger, senior vice president, cultural insights and strategy at Civic Entertainment Group. “The surrounding discussion speaks to the broader tension in fashion between art and capitalism.” The show sparked criticism on social media and initially on the Gucci runway itself, as model Ayesha Tan Jones, who walked the show, held up her hands in silent protest with the message “Mental Health is Not Fashion” written on her palms. According to Gucci, the opening looks at the show, were the “most extreme version of a uniform dictated by society and those who control it.” Michele designed “these blank-styled clothes to represent how through fashion, power is exercised over life, to eliminate self-expression.” “They encouraged the model’s protest as support of free speech, which is a fai...
