NASA Langley Research Center has developed a test station capable of in-situ testing of material deposition and layer adhesion in an extrusion additive manufacturing process. The technology addresses the problem of monitoring part quality during the 3D printing process.
With the drilling machines used at home or professionally, there is no provision to contain the dust or debris that is generated during the drilling process. Drilling in areas which are occupied (home/offices) creates a real challenge with the dust/debris generated and subsequent cleaning process.
Every year, air pollution causes the premature deaths of between 5.5 million and 7 million people, making it more deadly than HIV, traffic accidents and diabetes combined. The majority of these deaths — about 4 million — are caused by indoor air pollution, primarily in developing countries.
