Graphene Reimagined: Development and Manufacturing Explained

Scientists at Rice University have been hard at work developing and advancing graphene manufacturing to make the material more practical. This week, scientists manufactured conductive graphene foam that is reinforced by carbon nanotubes. It may sound like science fiction but the team at Rice University walked away with impressive results. Chemist James Tour from the Rice lab developed this extraordinary material. The material has impressive properties such as being able to support 3,000 ...

Automation and the Modern Manufacturing Enterprise.

Automation and advanced robotics have done so much for the modern manufacturing industry. These robotic systems offer small manufacturers the opportunity to improve their business and greatly expand their capabilities. At one time, only the largest manufacturing operations were able to afford industrial robotic arms to automate sections on their production line. However, as these robots become smaller, more affordable and capable, manufacturers of all sizes are jumping at the chance to own one ...
