Determining Spring Constant

A spring’s ability to store mechanical energy has a long history of use. From bows for hunting, door locks, or clocks, the technology has been around for many centuries. In modern times, springs still see many uses in automotive, jewelry, household appliances, and other industries. With large variety of uses, it is important to differentiate springs based on their mechanical properties.

Comparison of Ridge Spacing and Wear Rate on 3D Printed Materials

3D printed material is gaining rise due to its ability to create a large variety of shapes and features without the use of time consuming input. 3D printing does have its limitations, however, such as in the lack of materials that can be used and strength of products. To understand how the quality of 3D printed materials can be improved, the Nanovea Tribometer can be used to conduct wear testing.

Roughness and Particle Diameter of Sandpaper

Sandpaper is a common commercially available product used as an abrasive. The most common
use for sandpaper is to remove coatings or to polish a surface with its abrasive properties. These
abrasive properties are classified into grits, each related to how smooth or rough of a surface
finish it will give. To achieve desired abrasive properties, manufactures of sandpaper must ensure
that the abrasive particles are of a specific size and have little deviation. To quantify the quality
of sandpaper, Nanovea’s 3D Non-Contact Profilometer can be used to obtain the Sa height
parameter and average particle diameter of a sample area.
