    FEATURED REPORT

  • What Chemical Lab Equipment is Most Popular Among Engineers?

    I asked my wife, who has a degree in chemical engineering, “What’s the most popular chemical lab equipment being used by engineers?”

    Her response was as I expected, “Chemical engineers do not really use chemical lab equipment. Sometimes we evaluate processes on pilot scale equipment, but bench top chemical laboratories are for chemists and chemical research.”

    Non-technical people do not really understand the difference between a “chemical engineer” and a “chemist." Chemical engineers do not develop or engineer chemicals per se. Most chemical engineers do not really use “chemical lab equipment." Chemical engineers typically run experiments to develop and improve chemical processes on pilot scale equipment or even production scale systems.

    A new, non-penetrating sunscreen developed at the University of Arizona prevents oxybenzone from penetrating the skin.

Manufacturing Equipment and Accessories

  • Precision Machining Methods for Surgical Instruments

    MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT AND ACCESSORIES
    Ultra-hard metals and thin-walled metallic tubular structures present machining challenges to medical device manufacturers. Traditionally, a vast array of manufacturing techniques were used to achieve surgical precision edges, contours and patterns, including lasers, electric discharge machining (EDM), water-jet machining, chemical machining and grinding. Even when compared to other laser machining methods, fiber lasers have gained wide appeal as recent developments have allowed for advanced capabilities that produce superior edge quality.
