How 3D Scanners are Used in the Precision Parts Industry

The use of 3D scanners is widespread among companies that make a large range of precision parts. A 3D scanner is a highly accurate measuring device, making it perfect for jobs that have a low tolerance for error.

Specifically, 3D scanners use laser technology to sample or scan a surface. There are various ways these scanners can be utilized, with the main difference being the amount of power used. When the surface of a part or object has only to be digitized, a 3D scanner will be set for low power.

3D scanners allow technicians to uncover information about a scanned surface.
3D scanners are versatile and programmable, allowing technicians to perform a number of delicate precision measuring tasks.

Among various 3D scanners on the market are very high-accuracy instruments that perfectly measure a three-dimensional shape. This use of 3D scanners is common in the casting and sheet metal stamping industries. Another type of 3D scanner is used when its necessary to measure three-dimensional shapes of plastic parts, press-formed parts and cast parts.

There are 3D scanners that use a technology known as laser beam light-sectioning. Here, technicians scan parts and other work pieces with a slit beam. A CCD (charge-coupled device) camera collects the light that is reflected from the part, then distance information is created from the 3D data by a process called triangulation. This gathering of information would be impossible without 3D scanners.

A use for high-precision 3D scanners includes dimensional measurement of dies, forging, sheet metal, casting and the production of molded plastic parts. In the precision parts industry, workers typically are engaged in making work pieces that must adhere to strict manufacturing guidelines. 3D scanners give them the required accuracy.

Adherence to exacting guidelines is critical, because parts and pieces that are off-spec can cause injury or worse to those who end up using them. A 3D scanner uses advanced technology to tell the devices operators much important data about the piece being worked on and assures that the piece will be finished correctly.

To sum up, high-accuracy, portable 3D scanners are ideal technology for any precision work that calls for dimensional analysis, reverse engineering and industrial design. 3D scanners are also excellent research and development tools.

Industry Gem Finally Approves Steps To Up-list To A Higher U.s. Stock Exchange Otcflki

Ive been following this company since 1997 and it has been interesting to watch it grow from an idea to an internationally respected corporation, a leader in the industry.

Management notwithstanding the publicly traded status of the company has always managed to keep itself below the radar, that is, until late last year faced with an unfriendly bid for control, it could no longer do so.

It amazes me how stock traders of todays chat rooms and message boards can display such incredible disregard for the basics, foremost among these, the short term acumen and patience necessary to a great winner. In the case of FLKI, you could smell the sizzle for the last year. Everything was obvious, but like a baby wanting it now, they let the golden egg dissipate out of their avaricious pockets to fill those of the more patient of their acolytes. Its the beauty of this game of course that theyll or at least some of them will have a chance to get back in, late but in time for a worthwhile return.

I concluded long ago, that for these folks, money doesnt seem to be the primary motive, most lose money all of the time; its the adrenaline rush of a quick in and out that does it for them. I have written a number of articles on the subject.

The current tale will undoubtedly remind you of another tale, that of the hare and the turtle, how much plotting however does a stock investor need when the news is good, the earnings and prospects growing, the fundamentals scream yes and the charts rate the stock buy buy buy. Let the stock stand still a while, let it go back and forth, give it the time to rise to its proper level. Well for these amazing traders, you guessed it, if its not now, and I mean now, they dump it, feeding volatility, lavishing commission income upon the brokers, and perpetuating a syndrome that ensures extravagant losses.
Stocks like people need time to rest and consolidate.

Well there were and remain plenty of astute investors with their pockets wide open to purchase the stock at half the price these impatient traders laid out for the privilege of ownership. Theyre there buying of course because of whats to come and it takes no investment genius to figure it out.

FLKIs decision to commence the process for up-listing to a more senior market is fueled by the well reported rapid progress in its portfolio of high end product development, by the rapid expansion of its global distribution network, and by time and again witnessed, the growing world-wide interest in its Eco Pledge Standard for a Green, earth friendly production of biodegradable products. And yes let me say it now ahead of the naysayers, possibly as a management defensive technique against an unwanted bid for control even at the hefty price of $ 1;50 for newly issued shares (diluted value about 55 cents by my best count). But so what the end result is a massive improvement in the value of the stock whichever way it goes, and as for me let me stay with tested and enthused management any day.

As any good due diligence will prove, Falken Industries Ltd (OTC:FLKI) stands for solid gains in global implantations of its product conceptions and for growing global interest in the Company’s exceptional biodegradable product mixes, including products, notably wipes for disinfection and degreasing, designed for rescue teams, the military, and general utilities. Moreover it is apparent to all who take the time, and management shares the opinion, that FLKI substantially meets the requirements to up-list to a more senior U.S. stock exchange.

In fact, FLKIs Advisory Board approved steps that would initiate a reverse stock split as early as this year, if needed, to meet minimum stock price requirements of the senior U.S. stock exchanges and is establishing audit, compensation and nominating committees in advance of a planned up-listing. Nothing light about that news.

It makes sense, moving to a senior U.S. exchange should be a high priority for the company given the progress of its business interest, the demand upon its product conceptions, the major expansion of its distribution network, and its industry leadership and growing global interest in its Eco Pledge unique standard for ensuring Green products. Listing on a more senior U.S. exchange will assuredly in my view help increase visibility for the company and help attract a broader class of institutional investors. That stands for value building for shareholders.

I remember reporting on the vociferous shareholder demands presented at last years shareholder meeting. The company took the hint and direction of its 4,200+ shareholders. For the first time in a decade it initiated an effort to devote resources to investor awareness. That also will translate to value building for shareholders.

Clean Plus products, FLKIs most popular branded line of 160+ product conceptions, include disinfection and cleansing wipes tailored to crisis and disaster rescue teams, and notably to military applications, and products to purify brackish water. Custom wipes allow military and rescue personnel to ensure health and cleanliness while essentially eliminating the need for water in parts of the world devastated by intense drought conditions Iraq, Afghanistan any one?

So lets call it a spade, FLKI is not a sub-penny stocks that may trade on the hype of the morning call only to crash (there is a reason for the statistic that day traders loses on more than 88% of their trades). Lets give a hoorah for the short and intermediate term investors that have the stamina, the intelligence and the good sense to make an investment and stick to it for at least as long as the news and performance is positive ; as for me, front and center my example herein, Im buying up to 13 cents and riding happy for the rest.

Falken Industries Ltd OTC : FLKI is a diversified industrial conglomerate that operates in Chemicals, Wet Wipe and Biodegradable Technology. Falken Industries Ltd is the concept behind more than 160 products distributed through a network of global platforms and the recipient of trade awards for innovations, biodegradability and environmental and health quality standards.

Earthquake’s Influence On Japanese Electrical Component Industry

Japan is the world’s largest production base of RCL and quartz equipment. This earthquake has not jeopardized the factories heavily, but the supply of power and raw material is becoming short. Then the production of the device factory will be influenced. This influence can not be eliminated in the future three to nine months, which makes the short supply worse. The influence is huge especially in the aluminum electrolytic capacitor and MLCC industry which have high demand of power and accuracy. Many component magnates, such as Nichicon, Nippon-Chemicon and TDK, admitted that they had influenced by the earthquake. On one hand, they are worried about the capacity, on the other hand, they predicates the opportunities brought to China. I will describe some markets in the below part of my article.

First is the inductance. The Japanese chip inductor takes eighty-one percent all over the world. In this earthquake, many corporations had closed some of their factories.

Second is the capacitance. The place where the earthquake happened is the concentrated zone of aluminum electrolytic capacitor industry. Take the Nichicon for instance. Geographically, there are four places influenced by the disaster, namely Nagano, Hotaka, Ohmachi and Tomita. The other Corporations are similar with Nichicon. These entire situations give a blow to the industry chain. For the long term, this disaster will change the structure of the Japanese aluminum electrolytic capacitor industry deeply. The places which have suffered from unclear radiation will be closed for a long time or even forever, and then the manufacturers should move the industry chain outward.

Third is the resistance. It is reported that three factories of the Murata had left off work. Time is needed to calculate the loss. These factories are hard to recover to the original condition. Forth is the protection components. The factories of the protection components are not located in the north of Tokyo, so the earthquake has a little influence on it. Besides, the protection components are not accurate. The capacity will not be hindered if the devices are not broken. All in all, the influence brought by the earthquake is limited. The related integrated circuit is KTD1863.
