So today I came across an article about a deadly venomous snake that is missing from the New York City Zoo.  This Egyptian Cobra, which can easily take down an elephant within hours (not to mention a human within minutes), has been missing for a few days now, and zoo keepers believe that the cobra is hiding out…

ActionJac Provides Environmental Efficiencies for Solar Applications: Power Transmission Engineering

This is great article about The time-tested ActionJac series achieving clean solar actuation.  In the 1970s a backyard home satellite system was big.

In order to assist in satellite positioning, Nook Industries designed and applied its ActionJac, a worm gear screw jack product line, to this specific market. Although home satellite systems have steadily decreased in size…

The end of manufacturing as we know it?

What would our economy look like if every home had an additive manufacturing, rapid prototyping system? For example, how would it affect manufacturing? Would it translate into more or fewer jobs? How about transportation? Would we need fewer trucks and fewer distribution centers? What if, instead of everyone having an individual system, rapid prototyping systems were grouped into franchise opportunities, sort of like a “Kinko’s,” and consumers went there to obtain the item they wanted or…

Cardboard Balers and how they can save

And inside the smallest boxes were more cardboard to protect the glass lids and handles. My… Continue
