Better industrial insulation materials

Many production industries, such as steel and glass manufacture and petrochemical refining, run processes at high temperatures, requiring high energy consumption. Insulation materials are needed to minimise heat loss throughout the system. All such materials need certification to confirm their insulation properties. Certificat...

Improving biofuel moisture assessments

Wood chips produced from sustainable forestry are a carbon neutral source of energy for district heating and other biofuel power generation plants. Denmark is embracing this approach and aims for woody biomass to supply 100 % of district heating by 2035, as part of its goal to be independent of fossil fuels by 2050. Wood type ...

Accuracy for moisture measurements

Measuring the moisture of many different products, such as pulp, board and paper, is vital for manufacturing a quality product. Moisture content in paper effects ink uptake during printing, whilst in the production process drying consumes large amounts of energy. Paper industry products are commonly sold by weight, and therefor...

Precision robotic movements

Precision manufacturing industries, such as aerospace, mechanical engineering, and automotive all rely on automation to produce quality products. Industrial robots making complex movements in 3D follow engineering designs to manufacture and assemble parts on the production line. Robots are fitted with angle encoders, devices u...

Assessing complex optic performance

Academic or industrial researchers studying new materials and chemicals – such as those for pharmaceuticals and next generation solar panel films – are allocated beamtime at synchrotron or Free Electron Laser (FEL) research facilities where high intensity, focused infrared, ultraviolet, and X-ray beams can probe a material to g...

Improving sub-nanometre accuracy

Innovations in nanotechnology are producing novel materials with unique properties, such as the functionalised surfaces that are spurring the development of a new generation of electronics. Verifying that these nanoscale innovations perform as designed relies on measuring their features with sub-nanometre accuracy. Ultra-high-...
