Iris locates hardware components in 3D space and references CAD-specified datums to project a laser outline of each component onto the weldment, ensuring products are manufactured as designed, eliminating manual measuring, marking and fitting steps and making templates obsolete. Waterloo, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) November 12, 2013 Virtek Vision International will demonstrate its Iris™ Spatial Positioning System, which has been shown to accelerate welded assembly processes by as much as...

In a complex feat of nanoengineering, a team of scientists at Kyoto University and the University of Oxford have succeeded in creating a programable molecular transport system, the workings of which can be observed in real time. The results, appearing in the latest issue of Nature Nanotechnology, open the door to the development of advanced drug delivery methods and molecular manufacturing systems. Resembling a monorail train, the system relies on the self-assembly properties of DNA origami...

The first real steps towards building a microscopic device that can construct nano machines have been taken by US researchers. Writing in the peer-reviewed publication, International Journal of Nanomanufacturing from Inderscience Publishers, researchers describe an early prototype for a nanoassembler.In his 1986 book, The Engines of Creation, K Eric Drexler set down the long-term aim of nanotechnology - to create an assembler, a microscopic device, a robot, that could construct yet smaller...

By Thurs, Daniel Patrick In the summer of 2002, MIT's new Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies (ISN) found itself at the center of a controversy. The subject of debate was not the technical specifications of a new nanomaterial or a breakthrough in nanoscale electronics. It was about a comic book. The proposal that had won the five-year, $50 million grant to establish the ISN included a drawing of what the soldier of the future might look like. Her impressive outfit, set against a...

The science of nanotechnology could lead to radical improvements for space exploration. NASA -- When it comes to taking the next "giant leap" in space exploration, NASA is thinking small -- really small. In laboratories around the country, NASA is supporting the burgeoning science of nanotechnology. The basic idea is to learn to deal with matter at the atomic scale -- to be able to control individual atoms and molecules well enough to design molecule-size machines, advanced electronics and...
